Kaiju Revamp - Aprii Fools by Bracey100 Kaiju Revamp - Aprii Fools by Bracey100
Ok jokes over! This is not legit, this Godzilla was drawn by Crash, a concept artist for Stan Winston done for the proposed '94 an DeBont Godzilla movie which sadly never happened. Instead of a robust monster battling behemoth we got GINO. I traced over Crash's art but rendered my own colors to see which Godzilla fans would recognize this piece of art and call me out. While I tried very hard to make his look like my own work there were a couple of clues. I dont do profiles for instance and I always show all limbs and almost never use such a tame pose.

Its April 2nd now and I hope you can all groan and smile and laugh at my joke. Rest assured I will be doing my Godzilla soon, I just want to finish my commissions fist before committing to my ultimate project. Regardless more art is coming soon!

Maybe an old April Fools, but damn you did this design justice with those colors. I have a slight preference for green Godzillas. It actually reminds of the 1970s Marvel Godzilla with the green body and red eyes.

I was thinking about the marvel Godzilla when working on the colors.

Im a big fan of that series. I have the complete run of that book as well as the complete run of Shogun Warriors by Marvel.

I'm especially fond of the Marvel Godzilla as well. I love the design. Very retro and old school. Always wanted to see a more modern update to it. With more details and such.

I will NEVER understand why people rip on Zilla. His design is awesome, the movie was far from being perfect but was still great, and it was an over all brilliant take on a realistic godzilla.

If you like him thats fine but frankly a lot of us dont. I'll state again that his design have having smaller and smaller teeth at the front of his mouth to the point that they became these blunt little pegs was just a bad feature. Were the series to continue which would have added other giant mutants he would have ended up gumming his opponent. Also I never really dug the chin. Other than that design wise its not a bad monster blame the hate on the characterization, if youre going to redo a film stay true to the character.

Peter Jackson managed to give us a realistic King Kong that still acted like Kong! He was both something to be pitied and also feared. He was savage and noble. A realistic Godzilla is fine but he should still remain agressive (and not always fleeing!) and should spit at least fire if not radiation. Bombardier beetles produce a chemical explosion as a defense, to bad Roland and Emmerich didnt think fire breathing was realistic. At least the guys who made Reign of Fire realized it could be done. No, the design is mostly good and I am a fan of Patrick Tataupolis but the portrayal of the character made Zilla flighty, weak and a hermaphrodite...ugh!

Tell me something, if your brand new to the world, vulnerable to attacks by HIGH CALIBER WEAPONS, and above all PREGNANT, are you gonna stand and fight, or are you gonna run? Odds are your gonna run. Again, it was supposed to be a realistic take on Godzilla, not the damn near immortal radiation spewing monster we usualy see. And on that note they pass with flying colors. And for the record he DOES breath fire in the film. TWICE.

No it doesnt breath fire, It "shouts" and methane from its gut ignites only after some cars explode (not very realistically) from crashing together. Beside, I never said it had to be an immortal radiation monster, I said it should be agressive which is in the character of the original and even listed how the fire could have been done plausibly but if you are just going to ignore anything I say this conversation is over.

Anf Godzilla is not a hermaphrodite...period.

So.... An animal that know it could die and thus risk not only its own life but also the life of it's children is going to stand and fight.... Ya no. It's going to do what it takes to protect itself.

And if godzilla isn't a hermaphrodite then explain Minilla and Jr. Did they just spawn from thin air?
