F*ck you, I'm Rodan! by DaiKamonohashi F*ck you, I'm Rodan! by DaiKamonohashi
I've been feeling apprehensive about inking some non-kaiju stuff that I really don't want to screw up so I pulled out an older piece I'd began to pencil but never really figured out where I wanted to take it and I used it as practice.

I call it, "F*ck you, I'm Rodan!"

This is simply my own idealized version of Rodan - combining aspects of the 56, 64, and 04 suits - placed into the context of the classic 1956 film. Though this is not a true VERSUS NEO piece, it IS the design I will be using for that series and I may not do a separate Rodan piece for it (Fire Rodan, on the other hand...).

The expression on that face... It just says, and I have no idea where I'm getting this from, "F*ck you, I'm Rodan!"

Gorgeous shading.

Great job! You have made Rodan look truly scary. This has only happened once before, and that was with the original Rodan, '56. Rodan and its mate looked more reptilian, more menacing  in that film than in any of the later films. Toho didn't seem to get Rodan's head right afterwards for some reason.

I actually adore the Rodan design from Ghidrah and it was a big inspiration for drawing this variation on the character. XD

I didn't particularly like the design that was used in Ghidrah and Invasion of the Astro-Monster/aka Monster Zero. For me, the problem was Rodan's face. I thought it looked a bit comical. But, as I say, I love your drawing. Great job! :)

I think Rodan is a great monster. He tended to be eclipsed by Godzilla, but I think Rodan is one tenacious fighter.

Rodan may be my favorite monster from the Toho roster the more I think about it.

Very cool!  Love your new, but familiar take on Rodan.  The shading on the wings really makes him pop out- and only later do we see the immensity of the creature compared to the surroundings.  Great job!

I like how this is very stark but full of detail at the same time.

You're the only one who draws Rodan's head right.  This is great.

It's equal parts '56 and '64 Rodan.
