Godzilla Battle Monster by StaplesART Godzilla Battle Monster by StaplesART
I made a little video of my steps making this: [link]

It was done for the 68th 2d Creature Forge on CGHub [link]

The brief was to design a battle monster to take on Godzilla.

Learnt a lot. Lost some of the work due to not saving often enough. Learnt some positive things too though.

Took about 10 hours over a few nights. It was done in Painter and Photoshop.

Isn't this Kaiju from Pacific Rim, though?

I'm not sure if they're still accepting new monsters, but see if you can get it into Kaiju Combat.

Kaiju Combat is a game that's being made about giant monster battles. I thought that people could submit their monsters to be considered, but I looked into it and I think I'm wrong. Here's the page for it. [link]

Gorgeous looking monster here, worthy of battling the King of the Monsters himself.

The humanoid aspects to his design are quite reminiscent of the 1960's Marvel Comics monsters of their sci-fi anthology books.

While the gooey skin and coloring gives a feel of Hedorah, or a similar yet unseen Godzilla foe named Deathla, from one of his many unproduced film concepts.

I had to look up those various names but I can definitely see what you meant. Thanks for the great comment!

You're welcome, and sorry for the monster names confusion there.

You see, I'm the co-founder and current head of :iconkaijuden: itself, and I obviously know TOO MUCH about giant Godzilla-style monsters.

And although I compared your character to Hedorah and Deathla, truth be told that this guy would be an awesome character in his / its own right. Especially since you don't see many slime-based creatures that gives off the visual impression that they're also capable of displaying immense, psychical strength.

Wow, never realised how popular Godzilla is. 4 different Kaiju related groups featured me. Thanks again.

It's not a massive fandom, but thanks to the Internet, high-end merchandise in recent years, AND the obvious backlash from the 1998 American Godzilla movie, it diffidently gotten stronger and remains prominent.

And unlike my experiences growing up, Godzilla and friends now has some basic respect by people in general, minus the minority of jerks who more often than not, can't even tell the difference between Alaska and Iraq.

And then of course there's the upcoming film "Pacific Rim" (trailer here: [link]) which might bring the sub-genre more exposure, but yeah, it exist!

And again, thanks so much for the awesome illustration here - major shame the other CreatureForge entries are currently absent on DeviantART.

I don't think he could take on Godzilla...
I think he would just eat Gz for breakfast, and half of Japan for dinner :D
That is just freaking epic work!!
