KING OF KINGS by TheGurch KING OF KINGS by TheGurch
C'mon, what's not to like about the legend that is KONG?

The original might just be the first monster movie I saw as a child , maybe it leaves such an indelible impression because in it we find empathy with the beast, along with something that doesnt happens very often in a creature feature which is finding yourself shedding a tear at the films climax )-,:

For me KING KONG easily earns his billing as the eighth wonder of the world!

I hated that Godzilla lost in the original movie but this drawing is freaking epic.

Why thank you very very much for saying so Mr. Ghostlightwerewolf. 
I get backlash because of the outcome it depicts, its very gentlemanly of you to voice your appreciation for the art and not be clouded by the result.  Thanks :)

I'm sure you would too!

That's the  kind of fiery enthusiasm and pure conviction that gets any task done.....  now what if Kong possessed the same?

That's how Kong goes Godzilla sized while preparing for upcoming Kong: Skull Island and challenge Legendary's Godzilla

Kong would actually fit in his mouth... so he took away the mouth. ( some kinda monkey logic at work.)


Is that a green light on a Kong versus Godzilla movie?  I did heard some mention of it.

He like the pretense it was using the deadly art of Kong-fu ---  the reality? - discarded banana skin from a snack , Godzilla slips up ,head over heels impaled upon pointed skyscraper.  

Game , set and match to Mr Kong the King.

Isn't Godzillas skin impenetrable? Not trying to ruin the joke, just saying.

Oh Yeah, you got a valid ' point' there! 
:) 
In my world i saw him as a over grown dino lizard thing, I was dealing with real world physics and i reckoned a fall on sharp object penetrates,  however my mistake  i failed to work  that impenetrable factor into my reasoning.  In reality i doubt King would ever  come close to beating God. 

Yep your logic wins!

Hey no offence taken what so ever , on the contrary i love it when people stop by and chat, and share their opinion, i really do value other peoples viewpoints , it helps me see things through fresh eyes.
Always lovely to chat, you are most welcome to comment on other images in my gallery too.
Take care buddy.   :)

Oh wait wait wait ...in my defense i have come up with a new angle/ excuse/ evidence for the image being what it is.

At no point in my posting did i even refer to this as being Godzilla! Only in the comments have people assumed Its Godzilla and Ive kindly run with their assumption as thats what they choose to see it as.

Smug smile time  ---> :)

I don't know what all the others are talking about when they say Godzilla would win. Kong kicks ass bro! The others who disagree must not realize it, but gorillas have unbelievable strength. Plus Kong is huge, so you can times that by a hundred. You did a fantastic job! It really is tremendous! I also had a soft spot for Kong when I saw the films.

You do know the only reason why King Kong won was because the had to seriously beef him up and nerf Godzilla.

zdflanders Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2014
Yes I understand the film was inaccurate. This obviously isn't the movie version. The only reason I mentioned his size was to further demonstrate his strength. I wasn't saying that the two were of equal height. Basically I'm saying Kong has a shot at winning even in his normal state. I know not everyone shares this opinion but I do.

I simply love both monsters
Although I stand with Godzilla you can't say that Kong hasn't earned his right to be up there with him.


Just as a joke you should re draw this but with Gipsy Danger (the main Jaeger from pacific Rim)
Reply
:iconthegurch:
TheGurch Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2013
Yeah i love them them both too, but i dont feel they work well together on the same screen they a world of differences between them. 

I like your idea of drawing the Gipsy Danger it made me think ---- just imagine a huge giganticus Jaeger piloted by both Godzilla and Kong drifting together to take down any new contenders!! :)

I like the pic but obviously... Not what would happen, and btw, Godzilla is considered king, not Kong. Kong is king of skull island, not THE king.

Fair comment i suppose Gresh8980 and one youre entitled to, but who is to say it has or ever will happen?
So wait a minute ,step back, you do realise this entire image might not be a reflection of some mighty battle...but rather just the optimistic daydreams that captive chimps the world over love to see played out in their minds eye.

Fantastic job! I wish they would take Peter Jackson's Kong, increase his size to that of Godzilla's, give Kong some resistance to Godzilla's heat ray, and have them go at it. Now, that would be a battle!
