Hey all,

I kind of hit a snag again. Lately, I've been thinking about Leonydas, and I have come to the conclusion that I don't really care for his design. Basically, he's just a lion-like reptilian monster design, and I felt that certain features were seriously clashing with each other. The biggest offender was the mane, it just never really fit. The more I drew the creature, the more I really, really dislike it. It feels really forced. I'm ok with my main monster having hair/fur, that's fine, but I feel like it should fit the character, and the lion-like mane had class with me. I also not a fan of the face that much, especially those horn crests.

So, I decided to head back to the drawing board and try to plan out a new lead kaiju. The role will remain the same, a heroic monster from alternative dimension who comes to Earth to defend again evil beasts (keeping the Pacific Rim/Ultraman feel), but the design will be totally new.

Anyway, I do apologize for this, but when a concept isn't working for me, why keep it?

Later,
Jake
Gezion 2014 v2 12-8-14 by JacobMatthewSpencer
Gezion 2014 v2 12-8-14
Here's another take on Gezion, though this one is more based on the original "Classic" design over the Baragon/Gabora rip off design. I gave him the ability to retract his teeth into his gums, similar to Toothless from the How I Train Your Dragon movie franchise, a spiked tail, a ridged armored head (which resembles a drill head), and armored claws. The only thing that remains from the last idea is the ability to shoot explosive gas from his maw. 

I would say I really like this concept a bit more than the last one, though I do like elements of that design.

Behemoth Concepts 12-6-14
Two other remade monsters, Brontosukus and Dyraxus. The latter does have a ability to release spikes from the end of the tail and yes, they can explode. Still debating on Brontosukus's design and abilities.

Gezion Redesign 2014 12-6-14 by JacobMatthewSpencer
Gezion Redesign 2014 12-6-14
Yep, I resurrected and re-imagined Gezion as a four-legged beast. I also gave him elements of classic Baragon, Raiju (from Pacific Rim), and Gabora (from Ultraman). The head is now four plates that can clamp together, forming a "drill", while inner jaws can be extended outward and release a explosive gas from it's maw. The monster also moves on it's four limbs, crawling on it's knees, and can stand up to fight.

No changes to the design expect, except maybe a longer tail.
