Gojirasaurus xenonucliensis

"People are simply ants to him, something either beneath his notice or the subject of his contempt. And strangely...I find myself thinking that perhaps we are not so underserving...has man not overstepped his boundaries, time and time again, simply for the sake of money, power and the blood of our enemies?"
-Admiral Tachibana, curtesy of Matt Frank

The monster of all monsters, Gojirasaurus is an irradiated behemoth, a creature who owes its existance to the foolish hands of man. Born a relic on a lost island, forged in the heart of a nuclear blast, and tempered in the cold waters of Japan, Gojirasaurus, also known as "Gojira" or "Godzilla" is quite possibly the most powerful beast on the planet. There have been a total of four Gojirasaurs recorded, the first appearing off Odo Island in 1954.
Gojira is a creature with mysterious motives. It is often drawn to sources of energy, and will seek out and destroy anything carrying radioactive material. It is thought to subsist on fish, whales, and other deep water creatures, as well as the flesh of other mutations it kills. If judged by sheer strength and size alone, it would be a formidable adversary, but it carries more dangerous weapons then teeth or claws.
Its control over the radioactive forces in its body has given it the power to breath a superheated stream of napalm capable of wiping whole city blocks from the face of the earth. Irradiated cells in its body give it a formidable healing factor unequalled in modern biology. And, in a lethal irony, the gojiran emits a continous flow of radioactivity, contaminating anywhere it walks.
Due to its extreme ferocity and aggresion, Gojira's appearance is often followed by an immediate evacuation of nearby areas as the military seeks to drive the creature away. But it is a temperary measure at best, and Japan lives in fear of the massive predator in its waters.

Love this! Considering that there is a real (so far fragmentary) Gojirasaurus from the Triassic Era, this is a great rendition of its Gojiran evolution.

But Zilla was better in the animated series. So I'm kinda mixed with Zilla here.

Even though I saw the movie, in this pic Godzillasaurus looks like Zilla.

i would love to see this in the jruassic park films
Great job. A perfect combination of true dinosaurian traits and the classic Godzilla look.

Thanks! I'm glad you like it.

Cool! I'd prefer more traditional-looking back plates, but overall I like. I'd be perfectly happy if Legendary's Godzilla looked like this. ^_^

As would I, believe me! :)

Cool! Much more believable than the movie.

Oh wow, this looks a lot like how I'd redesign him!

The genus name may be taken by that real-world meta-coelurosaur, but this beast still has a killer species moniker...and its various G'98-inspired attributes (bluish triangular dorsals, theropod-digits & lipless crocodilian teeth) mesh with that solidly-proportioned torso & compact skull for one above-average "Dino-Goji."

Thank you kindly!

Very nice. I especially have to commend you on the arms, making the placement on them look like they would on a dinosaurs but still being the right shape and size as Godzilla's are traditionally. Excellently done! I also love the look of the feet. Great job!

Thank you. This illustration is the culmination of some long running doodles, so I'm very glad to know it looks right.

Cool! I like how you kept his sense of bulk even though he has a horizontal stance. Most saurian Godzillas wind up looking very lightly built, and it winds up feeling more like a Gojira-ish version of Zilla rather than a revamped Godzilla. I also like the general proportions a lot, it reminds me of Heisei Goji, who's always been one of my favorite incarnations of him. Nice.

Bulk is hard to convey with the more dinosaurian versions, so instead of working up from a dinosaurian version, I played around with coming from a golem-ish version. And, I'm happy to say it worked.
