Group Info

A group devoted to being a key central for finding Kaiju art and artists, as well as a social and networking tool for kaiju fandom, be it stars like Godzilla, Gamera, and King Kong, to rookies like the Cloverfield monster, the Pacific Rim kaiju, and even original characters created by artists.

Membership has no requirements, other than the ONE GOLDEN RULE; all artwork submitted must involve giant monsters in some manner.

-The top artists will have their work displayed in the Featured gallery.

-There are possibilities for promotions to those committed enough.

What is Kaiju?

For those unfamiliar with the term; Kaiju is Japanese for 'strange creature', or 'monster', while the additional Daikaiju (Dai = big) means giant monster. Fans in America (perhaps even more so than those in Japan) have used Kaiju as a slang phrase for the kind of giant beasts that pop up in Japanese science fiction and fantasy films, most notably Godzilla and his many friends and foes from that ongoing franchise.

Hence the name of our group, Kaijuden - the premier Deviant Art group dedicated to such things.

However, we know Kaiju isn't a perfect term, nor our we limited to the giant monsters from Japan alone...after all, where would the King of the Monsters be without his American forefathers King Kong and The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms?

As such, we have plenty of sub-folders and galleries within our group for these foreign giants. Those said galleries are all pretty self-explanatory, but if you have any further questions, you may contact our knowledgeable co-founder Enshohma.

I am sorry to report that Yasushi Nirasawa passed away on February 2, 2016 due to kidney failure. For those of you who do not know, Nirasawa was an illustrator, character designer, and model maker well known for his work in various Tokusatsu titles. He was responsible for designing Gigan and Monster X in Godzilla: Final Wars, and did creature designs for Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger and Golden Knight Garo, as well as for numerous Kamen Rider series such as Kamen Rider Blade, Kamen Rider Kabuto, Kamen Rider Den-O, Kamen Rider Decade, and Kamen Rider G.

Its tragic that someone who contributed so much to the world of tokusatsu has passed away so young at age 52, but at least he's left behind a legacy of excellent artwork & creature characters for fans to enjoy and remember him by for many more years to come.

R.I.P. Mr. Nirasawa, thanks for all your hard work.


You can check out examples of Nirasawa's work in the links below, as well as pictures of the man himself.
