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!!

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!

Wow thats awesome! 
Man from everything I've seen from this Godzilla.

He makes the Final Wars Godzilla seem like a complete amateur.
does anyone have any speculation on how big he's going to be?

Damn, you're making me envy your painting skills!

On the other hand, I like this design. Screw the naysayers!
In 2014, the King has returned to claim his throne.  All hail the king!
