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...

From Hideaki Anno:
Godzilla exists in a world of science fiction, not only of dreams and hopes, but he’s a caricature of reality, a satire, a mirror image. Recently, Japan has also been careless in the way it has attempted to depict him. In all honesty, Japanese production budgets and schedules are so tight, compared to the world’s capitol [Hollywood], not to mention the constraints imposed on filmmakers in terms of content. Frankly, I’m not sure how far outside the lines we can go.

However, movies have pride, even trifling little films; therefore, just as in the case of the new EVAs, I’m going in full force. When I think about what I’ve accomplished, the twists and turns befitting a screenplay, everything has led to this point. I write this with the hope that the reader might understand at least to some degree that no matter what a creator writes, it’s just an excuse, but I’m under pressure to make a visual effects fantasy film representative of modern Japan, with the full awareness of our current situation, and will be subjected to intentions both good and bad. 

From Shinji Higuchi:

The thought of this resurrection has my chest pounding. Almost three decades have passed since I snuck into this film industry, and had no idea what would transpire before me, because I was so idealistic. The difference between my first, carefree world of amateur filmmaking, compared to the reality of the ups and downs of the industry, I feel as though I’ve been a hero running for 30 years. But, at last, the time has come! 

It’s a veritable championship over one’s own mind. What now, then? Playtime is over. Nevertheless, with my best friend standing alongside me, we will triumph over the pressure that would otherwise make me run far away. I was born in this country which gave life to this great divinity [Godzilla], which destined me to work in visual effects, up until this very moment. I give unending thanks to Fate for this opportunity; so next year, I’ll give you the greatest worst nightmare.

Excited for GODZILLA 2016???

Re: Godzilla Neo.

If your intention is to incorporate Every kaiju from all aspects of the Godzilla franchise, you ought to include the ones from the period when Godzilla was licensed to Marvel Comics in 1976, such as Batragon, Yetrigar, Red Ronin (a giant robot) and the Mega Monsters.

The whole Marvel Godzilla series is available in trade paperback.
