King Kong doesn't really get the love that he deserves. Oh, he is without a doubt one of the most famous characters in all of motion picture history, but as far as giant monster and daikaiju fandom is concern, he's kind of overlooked. And that's something that I really can't argue with in retrospect, as the guy's just a giant gorilla after all, especially when compared to the more imaginative likes of Godzilla, Cthulhu, and Ultraman. But he's still the lovable 'John Wayne' of the giant monster genre, with his obvious personality, and his perseverance in combat, which makes Kong all the more awesome. And more fan art dedicated to King Kong is most needed as well, as in this very awesome illustration above, which pits The Eight Wonder of the World with the famous giant octopus of Norse legend (not Greek, contrary to modern belief). However, this picture also works as a subtle nod to Oodako - the giant octopus from "King Kong vs Godzilla", and various other surprise cameos in the Toho-produced monster movies of the sixties. True, the Oodako prop was never quite as bold nor as impressive as your Kraken pictured here, but I would still be curious if that was an intentional nod to that fairly obscure cephalopod? Beyond that fan boyish question, this really is a beautiful image, worthy of King Kong and the mythical sea monster alike.
