Godzilla 2014: The King Returns by SeanSumagaysay Godzilla 2014: The King Returns by SeanSumagaysay
A piece i wanted to work on of Legendary's Godzilla. Based on many leaked images and eye witness descriptions.

1) The head from the encounter footage & licensing expo image.
2) Dorsal Spines from the HotTopic Exclusive T-shirt (silhouetted in the letters)
3) The feet from the encounter's displayed maquette & eye witness descriptions of the 2013 SDCC13 teaser.
4) the tail from the SDCC13 poster.

Pretty darn accurate, if I do say so myself!
I like the subtly to the scales and body texture here, although it could stand some extra contrast to the core of the body, if nothing else but to make it pop somewhat.
Aside from that, it feels like one of the more conservative Godzilla interpretations from the new film. My only nitpick about the body itself is the strange dip in the base of the spine. Kinda' undermines the thick, rock-solid power that he has in most of the other images.
Well, regardless, nice job, and I look forward to more!
What do you think?

I really must say, this is spot-on accurate to the actual design!!
I mean it's perfecto, despite a few minor flaws, but still, it pretty much sums up how the Big G will appear on the big screen, which I can't wait to see this summer!!
And this picture certainly says, "This design does do the King of the Monsters justice way better than the 'other' one that Roland Emmerich and Dean Devlin did in 1998!".
So all in all, this is the best representation of what Godzilla will look like in the reboot that I ever seen!!
GREAT JOB!!!

Seems a little too up-right. Gojira is now a little hunched over, so, it's more of a dinosaur than a human now. However, you were pretty close.

The design you made here is definitely spot on, based all the eye witness accounts in trailers, magazine covers, posters including the sculptures featured in the "Godzilla Encounter" tour at Comic-Con 2013 this pic fits the descriptions.

Excellent job!!!I salute you!

After seeing the movie the only element that was left out from the design was the scales all over his body especially his abdominal area but the rest is still accurate though.

I just saw the teaser trailer and this drawing fits the new Godzilla perfectly. In the first shot godzilla is walking slowly hunched back with his head down, but in the last shot there is a view of him standing up right like the Japanese original ...=)I am a dummy!

The only thing that is inaccurate is the dorsal spines. They'll look more jagged and melted. Other than that, DAMN, this is accurate. Good work Sean :{D

This is a beacon of hope for me; all the stuff I've seen for the 2014 Godzilla gave me the idea that he was going to look really fat.

I was disappointed in thinking the long-awaited reincarnation of our beloved monster king was going to look more like a bear and not a dinosaur. A bear?! Dinosaurs are way cooler.

Your drawing is accurate to the little scraps of Godzilla 2014 that have been exposed to the public, and you put them all together in a way that satisfies my expectations of his dinosaurian figure. Good job.
