Godzilla - Gojira by LDN-RDNT Godzilla - Gojira by LDN-RDNT
Godzilla / ゴジラ

ZBrush 4, Photoshop CS4, Vue 8, Photography
Sculpting Approx 40-60 hours, Photoshop works 10-12 hrs


The model used here is the same as used from ([link]) the one affectionately nicknamed Fatzilla or Lardzilla by some. This presentation is created to give the design a closer look, where as the one in the link is part of my fan art series monster profiles.

The Godzilla character has changed over the years, from being man made disaster to an environmental friendly monster. From an anti hero to saviour of earth. From being creature who became a father figure to becoming a supernatural creature who is brought to life by angered spirits.
His appearance has also changed but he's always retained the distinct mutated heavily scaled dinosaur look with spiky dorsal fins (or spines) and a long powerful tail.
His size has fluctuated over the years from 50m tall to becoming 100m then 55 then back up to 100. His abilities and weaknesses have also varied over time.

As an artist, i took the freedom to design and create my version of this popular Japanese iconic monster, but also keeping the key characteristics that make a Godzilla design.

The design is heavily inspired from the Heisei Godzilla Suit (1990s). It is the Godzilla that i grew up with, as an artist. I admired his size, power, his unique proportions, the super long heavy tail (that constantly moves as if it had its own mind, perhaps its his 2nd brain (GvsMGII)), the facial expressions...The texture and armor is influenced from crocodilians and The Millennium G-Suit (2000), a sea-monster inspired creature design. The anatomical base structure is heavily drawn from theropod fossils, as Godzilla is a dinosaur. I have deliberately chosen to avoid the 'humanoid' rubber dinosaur suit direction that we are all so familiar and accustomed to, which the Japanese are the pioneers and ultimate masters of the daikaiju genre.

As always I appreciate your time and effort taken in leaving any comments and criticisms.

This is incridible blane and simple! I mean shore this is little more then a reffernce sheet but somehow he has remade this medium into something wonderful. You could frame this; certian parts you could use for a movie poster! He even managed to keep the original aspects of Godzilla intact which hard if you want your work to be destinct. I've seen this guys work before but is my faverite this guy is a find. Godzilla is the most reconizible movie monster of all time! I'm not sucking up to him though I mean I didn't like his Gigan.

Well LDN-RDNT, you've most certainly created something else here. When I look closely at this, the first thing I notice is all the fine detail, which probably took a long time to create on your part. You did a very nice job of fully utilizing all the tools given to you by the programs you used here. Going off of a plastic suit that a man wore in the movies long ago, you did an amazing job of recreating Godzilla in all his power and glory. Given how unique this Godzilla is from most others, I can tell you're an artist of exceptional ability. The only thing that I can see about these that I would change next time, is to make it look more like a drawing and less like something out of a video game. Again, this is fantastic work, but I can't help thinking that I've seen exactly this in a video game when I was a child. Otherwise, you had great detail, captured a great overall feel, and did Godzilla proud. Great work!

i think you did a fantastic job with this. i can see how in the critique that it reminds them of a video game but i dont think the whole thing should had been a drawing. i found a lil bit of humor with the cat. 5 nuclear pulse i guess because i could just see it in motion.  i think this would make a great poster.
