Space Godzilla by Fourgreen Space Godzilla by Fourgreen
Inbetween creating "Unmade Movie" scenes, I will keep things fresh with doing images of my most favorite kaiju. Starting with this guy.

Even though Godzilla vs. Space Godzilla is a weak movie, I like several elements that breaks  tradition of the Heisei movies. You don't have a monster that goes through an upgraded form to face Godzilla in the last battle. Godzilla himself, is now the lesser of 2 evils, putting him in the semi-hero role of old.

In fact, I find it has more in common with the Showa era movies than the more modern take on the series. These elements include the throw-back of having an island adventure setting, a goofy little Godzilla, and at last, a space monster. I like the idea of the Godzilla/Heroic robot team-up to defeat said Space Kaiju, and Space Godzilla's final explosion is magnificent.

As for the monster himself, Space Godzilla is both menacing and silly...the same way I see classic Gigan. Loaded with offensive attributes, SG is a tough nut for Godzilla to crack, and there is even a few monster on monster physical attacks thrown in the mix. To add to my appreciation of this beastie, he carries physical traits of my other favorite Heisei monster, Biollante, as it is implied that they are possibly related.

Sure the movie has shoddy SPFX, and a lame "love story". But for some reason, its these different tones that makes me appreciate this entry.

I would have loved to see Space godzilla return, well in a new movie. But as seen in modern movies, we done fuck up everything. :P So it is a sad and good thing that these movies don't return, and stay the master's of they're crafts as they once did when they were still being made. Awesome childhood well spent with the king of monsters. <3

Honestly I think Space Godzilla was one of the better entries of the Heisei series. The film had a vey simple plot with no twists that suddenly make Godzilla the enemy like G vs. KG and G vs. M Battle for Earth did. When I watch a Godzilla movie, I WANT to root for Godzilla, not the other monster. Space Godzilla was a badass villain. Not since Hedorah have we seen a kaiju that acted on his own instead of being controlled by something higher like aliens. I also loved the human characters in the film like Yuki. The fight scenes were also a real pleaser with actual physical contact (like you said). I also think the Godzilla suit was one of the best because he had a near organic look to him. Overall I really love G vs. SG and I prefer it over most of the Heisei films besides  Godzilla 85.

I agree wth the aspect of rooting for godzilla. Gareth edwards obviously shared this sentiment in the new movie, and I found it really annoying in the Millenium serius how nearly every movie was about killing godzilla. It only really worked in GMK because that was clearly a "different", evil godzilla with soulless eyes.

I agree. I hate to see Godzilla lose in later films. That's one of the major reasons I disliked the Kiryu movies.  Tokyo S.O.S was a major missed opportunity in my books. The only time I'm fine with him losing was in Mothra vs. Godzilla 1964 because he wasn't a hero yet. Like you said, GMK was the only later villain Godzilla film that actually worked because it was a WHOLE different Godzilla like a What If/ Elseworlds type film. I'm glad Legendary and Gareth made Godzilla a hero. We love Godzilla!!

Man this looks good. I love the effects of his shoulder crystals. Looks almost just like the movie. Has about the same shape and color luminescence. Did you find that on a tutorial, or did you figure out how to wing that yourself? o_0. Background also helps too. Got to love some of those Photoshop filters lol :P I think the radial is one of my favs to do when I am drawing up single character illustrations.

Good colors and shading as always man. I agree with everything you said about the movie though. The shoddy SPFX, the none existent story line, the island adventure, and the teaming up at the end. However...I still don't like the movie at all though lol! I just can't past that freaking aweful musical score that is in that movie. God it's bad.
