Are we sure this is concept art from 1965... ?

"Concept Art" was a poor choice of words to use on my part... It's more like an illustrated demonstration of how the ears could've worked. But I'll switch it to "Illustration" instead. (Also, missed how the artist was credited! Will note them as well.)

The gigantic blog banner on the main page is an absolute eyesore and I think I've missed about three consecutive site updates because of it.

Late reply on my part but if it's not official production art why even include it?

It made for a nice visual for the unused ear function, with the bonus of being drawn by someone with Toho history - the art itself originating from a Godzilla "encyclopedia" published under Toho's supervision. While not official, it's not throwaway fanart! It's kind of like how we use unofficial production art for certain monsters in the Cutting Room.

Plus, ear-folding Baragon was just too precious not to share :)

I don't know if this is where to put this or if this error is just me, but the Blog section at the top of the main site doesn't have any pictures when I'm pretty sure it's supposed to. It's been like this for, I think, a week now.

I'm also curious, does anybody even like it? It just looks... ugly and makes me miss how the main site used to look.

Not like that for me (I can still see pictures) but I absolutely agree that it looks terrible on the main page. I get that it's to try and promote the section but it's an eyesore regardless.

Actually, I think when I last tried opening the main site in Microsoft Edge, the pictures were giant! Worked fine in Chrome and Firefox, though.

Okay so...I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong but I can't seem to find any of the older articles using this new Blog page. The only way I can actually find any of the older stuff is to go through the numbered pages on the bottom.

This...this is awful. This is such a downgrade from the previous way the Articles were formatted. I get that it looks more like a Blog now than before, but it also looks so much more bland. I miss the old header image with the Photoshopped newspapers and the sidebar where you could easily access all of the Article Projects. The Articles + Blog section is just lifeless now.
