Hmmm. Are those Red Kings he's fighting? I'm getting Red King vibes. I could be (and most likely am) wrong though.

Possibly, the shared universe these redesigns take place in has featured Ultra kaiju before.

My most wanted fight ever is Discord vs Bobobo-bo bo-bobo.
Godzilla has a regen like Wolverine, a skin like Luke Cage, a hero aura like Captain America, a strength like Hulk, an unstoppability like Juggernaut, an immortality like Deadpool.

There's a 'God' in Godzilla for a reason...

His Majesty, a front-pager by arvalis

Aside from just being a really well-done piece with a nice, Shin-inspired design, I really like the philosophy behind this one. A lot of kaiju art nowadays (not all, mind you, but a lot) doesn't really do much to emphasize the true enormity of these creatures, which is what this guy set out to do (and IMO succeeded)

Honestly, if I could favorite an art piece more than once, I would do it to this.

The sheer sense of scale in Arvalis' piece is majestic.

So many of these artists forget (or at least fail) to make Godzilla imposing. That's a crucial factor in a good Godzilla design. Whether he's good, evil, or something in between, he has to look large and powerful, a living mountain, a creature that can kick ass on anyone or bulldoze through skyscrapers like they're made of cards. That thing above just looks like a somewhat cumbersome animal. I get no sense of size or power from it, at least in kaiju terms. It looks like it should be maybe twenty or thirty feet long, skulking around in a swamp eating fish and maybe stealing leftovers from the local Tyrannosaur's kills.

Yeah, Kong looks straight outta Generic RPG #287, and Godzilla looks like a weird dinosaur.

Definitely not a fan

I know, right? There's like a whole page dedicated to it! I sure am glad I stumbled into the Godzilla vs Kong thread out of idle curiosity, I was beginning to think I'd never find a place to talk about A Quiet Place. Maybe they should just cancel GvK altogether so we can all go see A Quiet Place 2 and discuss that here come March 2020?

Don't care for Kong. But Godzilla looks alright.

Both are generic deviantART RPG-fantasy fare. Godzilla looks like a Monster Hunter enemy.

A lot of artists seem to refuse to understand that Godzilla's always been vaguely human shaped, even in CGI form where there's no limitations of a guy in a suit. Remove that and he's just a generic fantasy dinosaur.
