Rodan, Terror of the Skies by InkVeil-Matter Rodan, Terror of the Skies by InkVeil-Matter
well I heard many requests of doing more and so I did, this is one of the few and more  Godzilla fanart that I will be Submitting. Here is Rodan in the way I think would be in the Godzilla 2014 style. Originally I was going to have Rodan against Godzilla but I realized I have done something similar with Mothra and I want each one to be unique in its own way. so I made this through a perspective of human eyes (since in the 2014 film and all the other Toho Godzilla films had that perspective a lot). this is done with mostly 3d sculpting and 3d rendering with painted elements like the sky, the windshield, the metal frame and some details.
    So whats going on is two jet pilots Owen Mathews and Haruko Mori(best friends since they dream about being apart of the air force) were on they're way back to base after a flight training. Back at Base monitoring the two pilots they picked up something on Radar which they were confused at first believing it was some interference from the storm due to its massive size but quickly realize that it changed its course towards the pilots, following them from behind. the pilots were receiving faulty communication back from the base but could not understand. then their radars showed a confusing form that showed it was right on them during their struggle flying through Horrible turbulence. the turbulence was still  and they gain control but realizing the skies got calm in a silent eerie way. A giant form broke through the clouds diving towards them from above, they both realized and parted away. The Giant form dive past them which caused them to lose control due to massive turbulence. they gained control when they saw that the form was way up ahead Flying towards them A form which they made out as a Giant M.U.F.O They maneuvered away from it when the beast almost snapped at one of them. But Owens jet was critical and could not take anymore of the strong force of turbulence caused by the beast as it flies. they try to report back to base that they are in serious trouble and Dose not know what to do but could not get a response. The M.U.F.O was chasing them from behind Haruko knew that Owen was in bad shape and that the M.U.F.O was chasing Owen. Haruko distracted the Beast by shooting at it with missiles (no damage) which only caught its attention and started chasing after Haruko. Haruko divided away from course trying to lead it the other way for Owen to get back to base a report what has happened. Haruko got hit enough by one of its wings where it made his jet lose control. Haruko lead the M.U.F.O away and Haruko tries to eject but could not. He tell Owen the situation and that he will not make it and tell him to tell his Daughter that he loves her right before the M.U.F.O catches the jet in its mouth where the Jet explodes as it bit down. Owen manages to get back to base where he landed bad which he was sent to the hospital. After he woke up he was met by Dr. Ishiro Serizawa and told him what has happened and what he saw. Serizawa was stunned to hear this
and said "Rodan has awaken"

Pardon if it seems either cliché thought it would be fun if I added a little story to my art.

(thought of M.U.F.O since in the 2014 movie M.U.T.O is a Anagram which stands for Massive Undeditified Terrestrial Organism which technically that means all Kaiju And even Godzilla at first would be given this Placeholder name at first since they are unidentified at the moment until they are either Recognized or given a name. Almost like John Doe or Jane Doe for unidentified People until recognized. M.U.F.O is me changing one word that would be for Flying Kaiju like Rodan or Mothra  [Massive Undentifying Flying Organism].)

Here is my other Godzilla fan art.

Sweet-freaking-LORD! This by far is the best interpretation of Rodan I have ever seen! While most often refer to his old model, you've managed to give the Kaiju a more realistic, and, TERRIFYING appearance! It actually looks like a pteradon, as to how its originally looked, but it still keeps to the same monstrous atmosphere that it held many years ago. Though a few people have decided to do a redesign of this beast already, you have definitely capture it the most!
By all means, this is one kaiju you don't want to fuck with, or else its your head!
What do you think?

This is stunning. It made me feel like i was in the plane with the pilot and looking out at this beast that was flying past. The detail is fantastic and it gives off the feel that these things really do exist and share our skies.

It has not been rushed and thats what makes the impact that much more. You have thought about what you want the scene to portray and you have certainly pulled it off in style. the light hits it perfectly and the expression in the head turn of the pilot makes it even more so.

This is probably my top favorite interpretation of Rodan. Absolutely stunning. :heart: Everything is captured so fantastically, from the detail to the sheer sense of scale. Really does feel like you're there. Keep up the great work! :love:

Awesome ! Maybe Rodan is a bigger than the movie version (50 meters), around 430 meters considering the fighter-interceptor (15-20 mètres) after which he flies. But the design is blameless !

I think even though he is very bulky, there is no reason why they couldn't explain his ability to still fly using something to do with his origins. Maybe something to do with radioactivity could make him a little lighter as he tries to take off....or it reacts with the Earths natural fields and is able to get of the ground. The air displacement alone would probably level a whole city. (I guess we have seen that before as well). I love this design though. It looks terrifying and would work well with the new American Godzilla. To me a lot of these borderline on looking from the Cthulhu lore. That is actually a really cool thing because if they really were in our world it would be like hell on earth. It would truly feel like we were at the mercy of gods. Awesome piece. Love the others too. Bravo.

That's definitely true. But there are levels of believability. Don't get me wrong, it's a great piece of art on it's own. But as someone who is very much into anatomy or prehistoric creatures, I would expect a more lightly built creature if it were to fly. It seems a bit too much like a person in a suit (which I suspect might be intended), and less like a gigantic flying Pterosaur.

I really like the head design though.

Well, I really wanted to make it more like a quetzalcoatlus. very thin and tiny body, big wing span that stretches so far. But my friend who is a Godzilla fan would not like it. fans wouldn't be to happy if I deviate to far from the original design. So I made due with this.  Between people who want anatomy versus the godzilla fans.  I stick with the latter.
