13 Nights 2012 King Kong by Grimbro 13 Nights 2012 King Kong by Grimbro
Day 11 and we have King Kong, from the movie Godzilla vs King Kong. The idea started as a pitch from Willis O'Brien, the special effects animator of the original King Kong. His idea though was for King Kong to fight Frankenstein. After being turned down by many movie studios Toho picked it up after O'Brien agreed to change Frankenstein's Monster to Godzilla. The look of Kong was more like that of an orangutan than of a Gorilla. He looked at his best when fighting so I reflect that in the painting

If you watch King Kong vs Godzilla, one of the 1st encounters with Kong is him saving a village on his island from a large octopus

Cheers! And no, that didn't come off rude. I said that because you explained it. Though I do need to watch all the Godzilla and rival's movies.
