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

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.

This is probably my second favorite redesign of Destoroyah behind Paleop's.

Also, here's a sketch I found. Don't know who drew it.
