Prayer to Mothra

"If we were to call for help, over time, over sea, like a wave, you'd come"
8"X10"
acrylic on panel

This picture features Mothra (or Mosura) in her larval stage headed toward Tokyo Bay to answer a distress call by the Shobijin (small fairy twins who can communicate with Mothra telepathically). The title of the painting is part of Mothra's prayer or song the Twins sing to contact Mothra. Mothra often aids as an ally to Godzilla but more often an enemy and worthy adversary to the "King of Monsters"

I had a tons of fun painting this, more then I thought I would, something about a giant worm crashing through the waves to cause destruction I guess. But I really had more fun hanging out watching Godzilla movies for research, Hope fully soon I would like to a King Ghidorah piece!!

Anthony, this is by far one of my favorites from you.

Just seeing this makes me imagine how amazing all the Godzilla monsters would be like painted by Anthony Pedro.

Also, thanks to this painting I can't get that Mothra song by "The Peanuts" twins, chanting..."Mothra...Mothra" out of my head!

P.S....I'm still waiting for that Epic T-Rex vs. Triceratops painting from you! I think a Dinosaur show is on the horizon!

no surprise but this is pretty kickass, dude. that grey-blue you're using for the water/reflected light is so spot on. i'm loving those strokes around the outside of the worm also.

p.s. a few quick color adjustments in photoshop and this could be a pretty boss DUNE piece also.
