The 1998 USA version of Godzilla, or Zilla as he's called by the japanese. I made his arms a bit longer and a smaller head, making him a bit more like the original japanese version.

Here’s a fan art image of the American Godzilla. This version of Godzilla may be the least popular for most fans, but I really like the design and the more fast paced action scenes.

Personally I think if they made a sequel and just made the creature more invincible and more aggressive, like in the animated series, it would do well with fans and general audiences. After this many years though I guess we’ll never know, unless another studio takes a stab and starts from scratch.

This image was drawn and shaded in pencil, and colored in photoshop.

( I swear to god, any zilla slandering will be met with the cross internet version of a butt kicking!)

After the disastrous attack on New York City in 1998, GDF cleanup crews were trying to get everything back to order. One scientist, named Nick Tatapoulus, went looking for any surviving eggs. After a cave in in the tunnel, Nick is separated from the rest of the group and knocked unconcious. when he wakes up, he finds himself not only in a puddle of strange smelly fluid, but next to a newborn godzilla! the hatchling seemed to inspect Nick briefly, then was firghtened away by a burst of electricity from a blown power wire. in order to get away, the baby dug a tunnel to the surface.

The baby got away, and nick found his group back above ground, but they refuse to go after the hatchling. knowing what the baby might do. With the help of Dr. Mendel Craven, Elsie Chapman, and Randy Hernandez, Nick sets a trap for the infant. unfortunatly, since then, the baby has grown to over 35 feet tall. it picks Nick up, and is about to eat him, when it smells some of the fluid from the egg that remains on Nick. It sets him down gently and then sits down outside Nicks facility and waits for him.

Over the next few weeks, nick and the rest of H.E.A.T. study the creature, and they learn that it's intelligent. but, the military arrives, and they begin to open fire on Zilla. Hurt and near death, Zilla Jr dives underwater in hopes of escaping...


HEIGHT: approx 55 meters at shoulder
WEIGHT: approx 500 tons
POWERS: unlike its late father, Zilla Jr has a powerful atomic beam coming from its mouth. it can also dig burrows almost as fast as Baragon can. it is very fast and agile, often using physical attacks like biting and tail whipping.

{ Here he is, Zilla Jr. for all you obsessed fanboys intent on dissing the kaiju, go watch some of the episodes from the tv series, it's pretty high quality kaiju entertainment, and it's what I grew up on! in the series, Zilla actually DOES have an atomic beam, and is much tougher than the live-action one, in that it can actually take on kaiju that are many times bigger than it. so it really doesn't give you fanboy/girls much to whine about.)

Godzilla doing battle against the air force. But unlike in the movie, it's going to take a lot more than a handful of missels to defeat the beast.

Done in a combination of pencil and digital shading, with color done in photoshop.

*Note:
Please do not leave comments asking me to re-title this image as Zilla. The image is set in the universe of the animated "Godzilla: The Series", where the creature is called Godzilla. So there is nothing to correct.

If I do an image set in the Final Wars universe, I will title the creature Zilla, as it was dubbed by Toho, but not here. In the meantime, let's agree to disagree in any differing opinions about the character, and focus on the artwork itself.

The only pic that I still like from 1999...

Godzilla is by far my oldest obcession, shame I had never been that great at properly drawing him. I had a less of a difficult time drawing the newer version once the animated series was released, but I still was only able to pull of this single pose that I got from the trading cards that came from my Trendmasters series of toys.

I need to do some new stuff.....it's nagging at me more than ever lately

Reptile Monster
ZILLA

HEIGHT: 50 meters
MASS: 15,000 metric tons

BIO:
In the bleary summer of 1998, thunderous footsteps shook the streets of New York City, and a shrieking roar shattered windows. Buildings were smashed, landmarks pulverized, fish trucks....eaten?
Headlines blared "GODZILLA TAKES A BITE OUT OF THE BIG APPLE!," "KING OF THE MONSTERS IN NYC!," and vendors lined the streets selling shirts declaring "Godzilla Was Here!" and photographs were taken in the massive footprints left in the monster's wake.
Of course, within days, it was all too obvious that Godzilla had NOT attacked New York, had NOT dug tunnels throughout the city, laid 100 eggs in Madison Square Garden, or died from 6 Tomahawk missles on the Brooklyn Bridge. It was instead a beast later known as "Zilla," or "Godzilla In Name Only" by the Kaiju Zoological and Enthusiast community, had chosen the metropolis as a place to lay its eggs and find food (WHY is subject to question). Despite the fact that the King of the Monsters had NOT died at the hands of the US Airforce, they sure liked to believe he did, and the announcements to the contrary were severely downplayed in the media.
Regardless, Biologist Nick Tatopolous knew that there was a very, VERY good chance that not all of the creature's eggs were destroyed in the blast that obliterated the nest. Leading a small search party, Nick discovered a lone egg. Hatching and imprinting on the scientist, "Zilla Jr," as it came to be nicknamed, began to follow Nick with incredible loyalty and intelligence, proving itself to be not only an efficient and agile fighter, but a benevolent kaiju at that.
The real question remained, however, as to where the original came from. That answer came in the form of Phillip Roche, and his protege', Monique Dupre. Part of a French Special Forces sector, the two were charged by their superiors to "clean up a mess" left from a series of experiments conducted in French Polynesia, were 5 "G-Cell Mutations" had escaped after a catastrophic accident (it is believed that S.C.A.L.E., a pro-kaiju rights organization/eco terrorist cell, was involved in these events). Nick Tatopolous, forming the H.E.A.T. team, hunted down all the remaining mutations, with Zilla's help, of course.
After a particularly traumatic event in Alaska, Zilla was later taken to Monster Island, where he would spend the remainder of his life...MOST of it, anyway...

ABILITIES/ASPECTS:
- Can run at 200 MPH
- Burrowing ability rivals Baragon's
- Can spit radiation-charged fire
- Very light healing factor
- Razor-whip tail
- Agility makes up for lack of resistance to heavy weapon fire
