Like his design or not, but calling Quach's drawing "hideous" is overstating your resent just a hair, is it not?

I find it glorious, personally: with a couple bodily tweaks (remove the hair, fangs, and one of the tails), that is my ideal Legendary Ghidorah. And furthermore, though I may not personally love the hair and fangs, I do agree that it is, for all intents and purposes, probably one of the best updates of the original suits that some of you guys cherish so dearly. It manages to become a more streamlined and graceful structure while retaining key traditional traits.

P.S. Isolated hairs would be more of a slight irritant to me, but manes would flat-out make me so tense that I could shove a lump of coal up my ass and in two weeks I would have a diamond. I have always found Showa Ghidorah's manes laughable: they just look stupid (Manda, however, looks fine with or without a thick mane, largely attributed to him literally being an East-Asian dragon morphologically)

I really like this design. One the few designs that is very alien looking but still actually looks like King Ghidorah. Plus love how the artist incorporated the trunk like legs but didn't just make them literally Godzilla's legs but golden/yellow like a few other design I've seen.

Image
Their Rodan also looks pretty good too imo.

These are perfect imo. Ghidorah actually looks like an alien life-form and Rodan is modernized but still very recognizable, infact I get some Heisei vibes from him. I also like Matt Frank's Ghidorah heads that have multiple eyes.

I'm just really worried at least one of the designs will look entirely too bland. Hollywood has a bad habit of doing that to their kaiju.

The Rodan is cool but I'd like to see more originality than what's in the Ghidorah in this design. It borrows way too may elements from Cloverfield's kaiju. :? However, change the torso to something more original, I'd definitely like it.

Legendary, if you're seeing this, you have your ghidorah, or at least the basis for it.

That doesn't look recognizably like Rodan to me. It looks like a generic pterosaur-inspired monster.
I don't think I saw the same movies as the rest of you.

First off beautiful art.

But as a design...I don't like it I find it looks too much like a generic super dragon or Yughoi O for some reason.

But this isn't a Toho movie. We've never seen any of these guys in CGI, with Hollywood effects.

Makes it fresh enough for me.

Eh you've got a point. Think their going to somehow use motion capture for Ghidorah?

I really excited to especially see their design for Ghidorah. Godzilla looks incredible, dark and creepy in certain shots so if they go with that feel for Ghidorah I think that will be great and his size will especially be daunting on an already massive Godzilla. With Mothra I think they will make her a little "darker" as well but I hope they have her sort of pop more design/color wise and retain a good mystical type of feel to her. Rodan I think should be fine as well and probably more realistic looking then ever.

I want Ghidorah to be beautiful yet horrifying, and bloody huge. Even though G14 was a more "natural" looking film (which I greatly enjoyed), I want both Ghidorah and Mothra to pop. Godzilla and Rodan can be the more drab and "Earthy", looking kaiju.

I have a bad feeling that they'll make the monsters extremely generic. Rodan, Ghidorah, and Mothra aren't super creative or anything, but they do have some unique qualities that make them stand out.

Sorry if this has been posted already, but I like this design. Only thing I'd change would be to make the necks and tail longer, the legs thicker and sturdier, and the waist thicker.
