"Ray Harryhausen" by TADASHI-STATION "Ray Harryhausen" by TADASHI-STATION
*If you like this, PLEASE check out my Gallery ^^* tadashi-station.deviantart.com… or my monster art: tadashi-station.deviantart.com…


"Ray Harryhausen"
(1920-2013) R.I.P.

Facebook link: www.facebook.com/pages/Ray-Har…

My IMDb poll:
"How old were you when you saw your 1st Ray Harryhausen movie?
Which one was it?" (Here) --> www.imdb.com/name/nm0366063/bo…


(Faber Castell India Ink Pens, colored pencils, markers)
*Background color thru computer*


My rendition of a personal hero (I had the honor of meeting).
Stop-Motion Animation Legend & Oscar Winner:
Mr. Ray Harryhausen

Ray is surrounded by his film creations: (L to R)

Ceratosaurus from "One Million Years B.C." (1966)
youtu.be/qmlJ4U6ZlPc (4:55 min. mark)

Cyclops from "The 7th Voyage of Sinbad" (1958)

& Rhedosaurus from "The Beast From 20,000 Fathoms" (1953)
www.youtube.com/watch?v=mTGMc-…


***Note to all you fellow Dino-Geeks & fan's of Ray***
I chose these 3 creations because:

Ceratosaurus is "my" favorite dinosaur, prob. because it was
the 1st dinosaur I ever laid eyes on (Cover illus. from the book)
"Dinosaurs and More Dinosaurs"

mysite.verizon.net/markcrowell…

chasmosaurs.blogspot.com/2010/…

The "Rhedosaurus" was the 1st Harryhausen film I ever saw,
(on an old black & white tube TV with rabbit ears) at age 7.
*Seeing Harryhausen's prehistoric leviathan released from
it's snowy tomb made SUCH an impression on me!*

& the Cyclops ... well it's The CYCLOPS!
*arguably the most iconic of Ray's many creations*
"The 7th Voyage of Sinbad" made such an impact, that
I named my son after the actor who portrayed, Sokurah.

Nice job! I also had the honor of meeting Ray at the 65th anniversary screening of KING KONG in Omaha, Neb. I asked him to autograph a painting I made of KONG - it's in my gallery.

Isn't he AMAZING? So kind & gracious,
he took the time to talk to all 3 of my (then)
young sons & listen to them share their "favorite"
of his creations / creatures.

Yes, he was very gracious. He really liked my art, and when I asked him to sign it, he said, " Oh, I couldn't do that, not on your original." I assured him it was okay, and that as fellow KONG lovers it would be an honor to have his name next to mine on a piece I made on our favorite film.

...I was always AMAZED how Harryhausen
could make you "feel" (& root) for the Monsters
in his movies! (such pathos!) I felt sad when
they died, like in "The Valley of Gwangi" where
the little boy cries at the end, I did, too, as a lil kid, except I cried for Gwangi!
