Godzilla 2014: The King Returns by SeanSumagaysay

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 ...

Dino paint by PootDamnYou

It's always interesting to see a non-paleo-artist's take on a dinosaurian form, because there are all sorts of cool design possibilitie...

In the wake of G-Fest, which was a great time and I was thrilled to see so many Deviant-art-ers come out, I wanted to turn the spotlight onto two Kickstarters that were being promoted at the show.

Firstly, there's GODZILLA: HERITAGE - this one's been kicking around for a while, and there's only a little bit of time left in the campaign. BUT, if they can pull down a few thousand more, they can get this extremely cool-looking fanfilm made. The monster suits are being built by Rashaad Santiago (of SyFy's FACE OFF), and features both Godzilla and Anguirus. Go scope it out and let's try and make their goal, eh? I'll be producing a poster for the project later this year.
UPDATE - G Heritage has a second Kickstarter with a slightly more in-reach goal to make. Go donate now!

Next, there's a great documentary being produced by Kaijucast called HAIL TO THE KING: 60 YEARS OF DESTRUCTION. The idea is to produce a documentary focusing on the upcoming Godzilla exhibit in Japan, as well as including various interviews and testimonials from professionals who have worked on the Godzilla franchise to celebrate its 60th anniversary. I'll be providing sketches for incentives, as well as large-sized posters based on my "60 Years of Mayhem" art.
UPDATE - About 60% there! Keep it going!

I'm sure you've heard the news, Rodan, Mothra, and King Ghidorah in the next Godzilla film.  Since we know what direction Legendary went with Godzilla himself, we have a fair idea of how those three might look.  Only a matter of time before you give us your own imaginations for what they'll look like in that style, which I'm looking forward to. XD  Right?

Sounds like a retelling of Ghidorah: The Three Headed Monster.
