Godzilla Redesign by JamesRod71 Godzilla Redesign by JamesRod71
My redesign of Gojira (Godzilla) with Kong standing next to him at the height he would be at in reality.

This is really good. It's close to the Japanese design in terms of humanoid structure (possibly resulting from the costume used in the early movies), ears and beastly face, but with slim and more animal-like proportions, such as the hind legs, that can work as CGI rather than the traditional suitmation, which an example of this can seen in a cameo in the 2007 Japanese movie; Always: Sunset on Third Street 2. It would make Godzilla more flexible and agile which you can't say for the bulky and heavy suit depiction, and regarding the size; I would say in any size, but big enough to destroy buildings and the human defence forces.

In regards to King Kong, you can have the ape at a large, believable size for a living creature while you can make Godzilla small enough to scale, though I think the latter would work at a slightly higher size compared to the former (Kong's head parallel to Godzilla's shoulders), but that's just my opinion.

tnx man, yeah I figured I'd use the Peter Jackson Kong as he was bent on realistic proportions.

No problem. You really did an awesome job on drawing Godzilla. You drew him very well. Hes so huge compared to Kong lol. Kong looks like a snack to Big G :)

I very much like the basic structure, and the drawing is really detailed; there are some elements I think would make this closer to a version I'd prefer but out of many of the redesigns out there this is probably one of my favourites!

Incidentally, why'd you choose to make the mouth unscaly and so expressive?

tnx, Actually I was going to make some hints of scales along the snout but when I tried it somehow did not work as well and the scales ended up looking more like wrinkles. when I have the time to color it I'll make the scales a bit more but I like having his face with a bit more expression. I mean on a certain level he is a thinking animal so why not give him some expresion besides we are talking about a 30-35 story lizard :)
