It's gonna be big by Tapwing It's gonna be big by Tapwing
Flip'n hell Ive been sick all the past week, but i'm back now and ready to get back into art. 
So today here's this thing i've been sitting on all summer. 

Painted this for fun, practice and anticipation for the theorized 4-way battle that could be the Godzilla sequel. 
also Officially the most time I've clocked into a painting with 17 hours of tracked painting time. Yay :D
My only beef with this painting is that some how.. Some HOW I managed to even out the perspective during rendering so the "camera" isn't looking up, which kind of takes away the drama of 4 GIANT monsters fighting each other *face palms* 
Any way, threw in some helicopters to try and compensate for that goof up. Definitely going to have to look out for that next time.

Drawn in procreate. 
Godzilla, Mothra, Rodan, King Gidorah- Godzilla

I love this picture so much!!! Think the big thing I like the most about it is how you've depicted Ghidorah walking with the help of his wings. Always thought it was odd that his wings just stuck out whenever he walked in the older films; just felt outta place. Honestly I feel he'd sort of walk like Smaug from the Hobbit films and be more Wyvren like I guess. But epic pic and I agree that he should tower over Godzilla though. Look forward to seeing more of your art and hope that you get back on designs for Ghidorah.

I know gidhora is supposed to be an evil dragon and stuff but I got to admit this fan version you made definitely takes the cake kind of has some of the Yu-Gi-Oh dragons maybe even smaug mixed in perhaps

Godzilla 2014 is 108 Meter tall and 216 Meter long.
That's mean, King Ghidorah will be taller than Godzilla 2 time and longer than Godzilla 2 or 3 time.

I love how massive you made Ghidorah feel. Especially with how his wings look huge even though they are partially folded up.

I'm not entirely sure what the question is? Are you wondering how big they're supposed to be in the picture?

Yes, what growth?

Tapwing Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2017  Professional Digital Artist
Well godzilla' the same size as he was in the 2014 movie (100-120m). Rodan and mothra are about his size as well. Ghidora though is a little over double they'r size.
Mind you I left the illustration a bit loose on exact sizes.

Great. The growth of the Ghidora can be 150 meters here?

Okay so Legendary Goji was the biggest version of himself seen at that point and I totally didn't think about the fact that King G was always bigger in the old films. King G's going to blow Goji and Femuto away in size in the new film.

Looks very extra-terrestrial like, I love it! If Legendary is going to make Ghidorah a space monster I can see them trying to make him look more like an extra-terrestrial creature!

From the sounds of things (mainly the stinger from King Kong: Skull Island), it seems Rodan, Mothra, and King G are all going to be ancient predators that originate from Earth. It seems the MonsterVerse (Legendary's films) are going for semi-realism in the monsters' origins so I doubt King G is going to be a space monster like he normally is.

Nothing can live in the near-vacuum of space so saying this giant three-headed dragon was able to withstand that near-vacuum without imploding would be far-fetched. It works for the old films because they didn't take themselves too seriously but it's not going to work for the semi-realistic MonsterVerse. Just the fact that Ghidorah's even showing up is stretching it a bit from a realistic sense but perhaps his origin will be similar to real-life two-headed animals where it was either a birth defect or even an absorbed twin (triplets in King G's case).

Personally, I think Legendary should keep Ghidorah's origin unknown or mysterious in the movie.

That's always an option. I'm most intrigued by both him and Mothra's potential origins. Rodan's easy to explain, given his pterosaur appearance. Explaining a giant moth and a three-headed dragon should be most interesting.

Mothra shouldn't be that hard, just have a lost Japanese tribe that lives in the middle nowhere in the ocean worshiped a giant prehistoric moth.

That's probably still pushing it a bit, unless this version of Mothra also survived the Permian Extinction like Goji did and settled up somewhere to be worshiped as a deity of some kind. Infant Island may still be a place in this universe since Skull Island remains Kong's home turf. 

The potential is real.

Kind of have to retract my previous statement that Ghidorah having a mysterious origin being an option simply because it seems all four kaiju are just extremely ancient animals shunted forward in time, according to the tropes page I'm reading through. I'm still all for Ghidorah being absorbed triplets similar to the Dorats in Godzilla vs. Ghidorah.

Well according to the synopsis of Godzilla 2 is that Godzilla, Mothra, Rodan, and Ghidorah are all ancient super species and thought to be mere myths. So I guess Ghidorah is definitely going to be ancient creature that was born with 3 heads.

I just wish for Mothra to fight alongside with Godzilla and Rodan as a MOTH! Watching larvas is no fun. And also for Ghidora to be alien monster who likes to hurt his opponents and preys physically and mentally.

Of all the different incarnations of Gojira, my favorite is the Legendary Pictures version. I certainly hope they do Ghidorah justice (and hope they base their Ghidorah off of your design as its AWESOME) :D

Cool!

Can we get one of Legendary's Kong & Godzilla fighting against King Ghidorah, who may be the greater threat of that future film that forces the two most powerful Earth daikaiju to unite their might.
