There can only be one King. by BlackMatter234 There can only be one King. by BlackMatter234
I Finished it!!!!! my 3d/Digital painted drawing of Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah. This is one of my tribute for the good news I heard for the new Godzilla Sequel. As you can tell I am a big fan of Godzilla and all the toho Kaiju's he fights and mostly big fan of making monsters in general. anyways, this piece took a lot of thinking. the planning part was extremely difficult, I wanted to do a piece where it shows Godzilla fighting king Ghidorah, one on one but the problem is I want to focus on the head of king Ghidorah (at least one of them) and focus closely on the new Godzilla using one of my favorite facial and body gesture from the new movie right before when he is about to roar or breathe out his atomic breath. originally I wanted to really show more of king Ghidorah but could not accomplish it without making to much negative space and mostly I did not want to draw the eyes away from the king of monsters making Godzilla the main center point. as for rendering, texturing, and LIGHTING!!! it was difficult because not only king ghidorah is gold but I have to somehow make it still gold reflecting blue light from Godzilla's mouth and spine in a dark environment while still focusing on the global illumination from the environment and the natural lighting from the horizon. as for the perspective, it was fun to find out how I want it. at first I was going to make the camera view look up showing there massive scale, but it would of eliminate the heads behind Godzilla + I thought it would be fun to show the building break apart as Godzilla slams the right head into it.

 Here is my Rough draft

Sweet mother of Mothra this is amazing! I'm not even sure where to begin with this! The colors are so bold, and really match the tone of the film. They also blend well with each other and the background. Also, the details in this image is incredible! Not only can you see every scale, muscle, and expression on Godzilla and Ghidorah, but also the scenario. Your sucked right into the action, and you can feel the raw power on display here. All in all, this is simply a masterpiece and you really need to be a concept artist. I can't wait to see more Godzilla artwork from you!

Holy crap you've done it again. You have once again created another piece that could be a scene from the movie. Godzilla looks great as always. And Ghidorah, he looks awesome. His appearance definitely meets Legendary's standards. The lighting is perfect to give it that feeling for the atmosphere. Even the sky has some kind of aesthetic feel to it. The red eyes on Ghidorah are new but they actually make him look badass. Even his teeth look badass. Even the lighting with Godzilla's breath and Ghidorah's breath, the lighting on both are perfect. With Legendary making more Godzilla sequels for the Legendary Godzilla, we can all imagine that all these monsters are going to looking badass. Legendary should definitely make the monsters look like the way you do. Because you make them look like potential looks.

Godzilla is by far my favorite childhood mega monster and Im such a big fan, I can't even begin to say how amazing this is.
You have really made Godzilla more badass than I remember. Congrats on the critiques, you deserve the ratings you got!

Hope, you can do a Spacegodzilla in the future with 3D. If that ever happened. You will be awarded the greatest prize of monster designer. Now, we can see that King Ghidorah scene in the next three year to come.

Wish you the best of luck of your career.

Dude. Your art is amazing. Excellent renders of what the American versions of Ghidorah, Rodan and Mothra could look like. You should do a Gigan! He was always one of my favorites. haha Keep up the great work!

Awesome work!

It would be nice to see Ghidorah more dragon like in the new film. I can see a little bit of Smaug in there too ;)

After watching The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, I was very much impressed by the opening scene in which Smaug incinerated Lake Town. I keep imagining a similar style scene in the new G film in which King Ghidorah is raining fire and death down on a city with Aaron Taylor-Johnson looking on helplessly. It's just a thought :)

Imagine King Ghidorah in the place of Smaug...

If Godzilla is now bigger than the old King Ghidorah, imagine how much bigger this one would be! People wouldn't even be able to see his heads from the ground.
