Return of the Unfinished Kaiju

This is another one of my attempts to do a redesign of Gigan that I liked. The fact that I keep trying to come up with one says more about my own occasional inability to love the absurd than it indicates the possibility of a good “organic” design. Japanese entertainment is full of wildly ridiculous monsters. For the most part Godzilla’s adversaries and allies are, at least in my kid mind, somehow, rational designs for monsters. They’re radioactive dinosaurs, space dragons, giant insects or well armed robots. Gigan is a new wave parrot headed dandy with hook hands and a buzzsaw in his chest. He’s goofy. Maybe one day I’ll just accept that and let him be.
