I was thinking more about the sketches that were supposed to be concept art and I was thinking of showing off my own sketches I made. Now, I'm not the most amazing artist out there, but I do like to draw from time to time. I even have drawings that I don't even finish because I was too lazy to get it done. Again, I'm not the most amazing artist out there. Far from it. You can tell how much an amateur I am, but here they are.
I drew King Ghidorah either in 2014 or 2015. The news that King Ghidorah was coming to the big screen was still fresh at the time and everyone was going with the Smaug look. While I did make him look like a wyvern, I also wanted to catch that classic Ghidorah look. A blend of the 60's and 90's version.
These next two I just wanted to show off a couple ideas that I had for my own monster. You can tell that I was experimenting with cross hatching, but I really did a poor job erasing. I had ideas for a story that I wanted to tell and I couldn't get the story to sound the way I originally intended. One of them was inspired by the Montauk monster and that the story was about a conspiracy being covered up. There was a research base on Plum Island where scientists were doing experiments with genetic mutations and one of them got loose and escaped. The other story idea was about a guy that was having constant dreams of a monster attacking small towns and fishing ships until he finds that these dreams were actually real. The first picture is a monster that is a blend of a fish and some sort of amphibian (I think it was suppose to be a frog) and the second picture is a monster that is a blend of an iguana and a silver back gorilla.
These two drawings I did last year. Originally, I was going to use them for last year's Godzilla-thon to break up each series as well as a way to use my art for other things. This was also an opportunity to practice outlining with pen and using other techniques such as shading. Ultimately, the idea was scrapped.
The last three I like to call The Split trilogy. During this time, Godzilla (2014) was a big hit and Japan was about to bring Shin Godzilla over to the United States. After Shin Godzilla was released, there was a split in the fan base arguing over which movie was better and if bringing Shin Godzilla would hurt Legendary's Monsterverse series. It was even the beginning of who had the big dick contest between the United States and Japan. In the end, it didn't matter. Shin Godzilla, as we know for now, was a one off movie and the Monsterverse series is still going strong with Kong: Skull Island that was released last year and Godzilla: King Of The Monsters coming next year.
That is all the drawings I have for now. Like I said, I just wanted to show off my sketches as well. Maybe I will come back to a couple of them and show them off again with an updated look. Perhaps I may show some that aren't related to giant monsters at all next time. For now, this is good enough. Tomorrow, Godzilla: City On The Edge Of Battle will be released on Netflix and I will be busy watching and reviewing the movie.
