Leonydas Sketch 1-23-15 001 by JacobMatthewSpencer
Leonydas Sketch 1-23-15 001
Drawn & Inked by Jacob Spencer

Here's a Leonydas sketch, still debating on the fur look, but I like everything else. And yes, he is about to create his fire-wings.

Behemoth Concept 1-22-15 by JacobMatthewSpencer
Behemoth Concept 1-22-15
Drawn & Inked by Jacob Spencer

This is a pretty new kaiju in terms of design, but not in concept. In a way, it is a bit of a successor of my kaiju, Omegaken. 

Anyway, to separate from Monsturra, this monster has five dual fins, modeled after a shark's and a tail fluke based on a salamander's (more so the Oriental giant salamanders and the Hellbender species) The skin is loose, but thick, and though it isn't done well in this drawing, I do intend making it more thicker and fat. The monster also takes in oxygen into it's skin, both under water and the air.  There are also some tusks on the face, which it attacks a foe with forward charges.

Still debating on the name and abilities (if any) for this behemoth. If you have any suggestions, go ahead.

Behemoth Concept 1-20-15 by JacobMatthewSpencer
Behemoth Concept 1-20-15
Drawn & Inked by Jacob M. Spencer

This is a sketch I did based around one of the recent alternative Monsturra head designs. The head is based on the Version 2 head, which features four bioluminescent organs on the frill. I added a additional bioluminescent organ on the snout horn and six others on the hind legs (the outer parts). I kept the sail/armored look, though I am debating on changing the gills design or go with the concept that Monsturra simply breath underwater as well as air.  Any suggestions?

Hey all,

I decided to update my journal, since my last was a bit of a doom & gloom one. Anyway, as you see, I've been working on some alternative Monsturra designs. While I been taking a bit of break, I do plan on doing a few more drawings. This drawings will some more Monsturra heads that build up on the "Version 2" model. Nothing major, I just want to experiment a bit with the design.

I've been asking myself these question about my project of late:
1) Do I want to keep Leonydas or just get rid of him? 

I mean, I like the overall concept, but I'm not really happy about it at the same time. Mostly, I am taking some elements away from my previous kaiju, Apollosaurus Rex, and adding them to Leo's design. While I do like the concept of Leonydas as a supporting kaiju character, I do think he takes a bit away from Monsturra as the main kaiju. Speak of which...

2) Should Monsturra remain a heroic monster?

Now, this isn't as hard as the question above, but I've been debating about Monsturra being a heroic monster. Now, mind you, he will still be a good guy, but I like a more anti-hero/reluctant hero approach. Which brings up the question.

3) Am I ripping off :icondinohunter2: ?

Not intentionally, of course, but some of the ideas I have for my series were influence from two of his ideas. The first would be my monsters are coming through our world via a dimensional rift in space and time (that happens to be on Earth) or being creatures that resurrect/revive every millenia. This actually occurs every few thousand years. This concept is inspired from his Gamera series which showed both a heroic and villainous Gamera (The Guardian and Destroyer). Of course, I have a bit of twist with mine, but I won't say what it is (mostly because I'm still ironing out the bugs).

The second is a bit more subtitle, but I have the concept of a younger Monsturra befriending some humans, until he is attacked and presumed killed by the military. This idea is influenced by Chris's cancelled stop-motion Godzilla idea (which I am too lazy to look up), in which his pre-mutated Goji befriends a few people before getting nuked.

As you can see, I have the ideas, but I fear I'm becoming a theft again, and I know what happened the last time this occurred. Of course, I don't see it being a big deal, but still...

Anyway, that's what been on my mind of late. That and Monsturra's powers, and trying to debate on the enemy kaiju's designs.

It's getting late, so I will talk to you later,

Peace,
Jake
Alternative Monsturra Head Designs 1-18-15 by JacobMatthewSpencer
Alternative Monsturra Head Designs 1-18-15
I've been thinking about doing some alternative head designs for Monsturra. One of the reasons because, with the current frill concept, Monsturra looks like :iconscale-fang:'s Levarin Levarin by Scale-Fang. So, I have decided to try some new designs that could work for Monsturra's look. Keep in mind, none of these are definite.

Scale-Fang suggested that I should try two different designs. The second idea he gave me was the top two, Version 1, which has a frill on his head, but it is more based on Triceratops, and less of a membrane frill like Levarin's. On top of the frill is two long twin horns. It's a ok design, but Monsturra looses his aquatic feel with it.

The other two are based on his first suggestion, that I should based the head thing more on the antennae like organs that the Twi'leks from Star Wars have. Version 2 still maintains the frill (in a way), but has the antennae being semi-flexible. At the ends are bio-luminescent organs that light up whenever Monsturra is in deep waters or as a signal for his breath attack. 

Version 3, the bottom design, has the antennae as well, though there is only two of them. The bio-luminescent organs are on the head itself, with the larger ones on the front of the antennae. They can be folded be downward and put up, and semi-outward, but they do not move forward. 

Yeah, I am debating if I want to keep these designs or go with something a bit more different.
