Reimagining Gigan

Gigan, a three time sparring partner of Godzilla, apparently has a lot of fans. I’m not one of them. I don’t care for his original design from the seventies and I thought there was way too much of him in Godzilla: Final Wars. Nonetheless, I’ve done numerous sketches of him in an attempt to design a version of him that I liked.

So far I haven’t succeeded. The final version (colored and enhanced in Photoshop) of this portrait appears in my Kaijuphile gallery where it has proved to be one of my most popular illustrations. Sigh.
