Return Of Godzilla by Fourgreen Return Of Godzilla by Fourgreen
The movie we've first knew as "Godzilla 1985" was originally quite different (and possibly more exciting?) in it's early conception. A large portion of the plot concerned the infamous monster Bagan, who was a shape-shifting creature who plagues Japan and faces Godzilla in it's combined "totem pole" form, incorporating elements of a dragon, monsterous simian, and fish creature (3 forms it took individually prior).

Taking some visual cues from the final product, I inserted Godzilla locked in battle with Bagan to give a possible idea how this may have looked. Suit actor Hurricane Ryu had done a series of drawings depicting several unmade kaiju (most which I have used as a basis for my past illustrations), and that is where this image of Bagan draws inspiration from...but with more of a man-in-suit feel.

If you do eventually do the original GMK, you should also take cue from the final film like how you did this.

Anyway I think if this really came to be, it would've been a LOT more Showa-esque and less serious in tone.

Was Super X supposed to be there in the first place?

Not sure...but I wanted to identify where this movie was ending up...

I've never been a fan of the totem pole monster version of Bagan, too goofy looking, but ya did a good job on its design here, even if I still think it would fit in better with a Super Sentai or Metal Hero setting than Godzilla.

LOVE the job ya did on Goji85, one of my favorite designs, as well as the Super X, the buildings, and the lasers (those were lasers rather than masers right? lol)
