Anguirus 2014 redesign by XxHXCLIONxX Anguirus 2014 redesign by XxHXCLIONxX
This is the finished Anguirus design! XD

i based off the semi-bipedal Anguirus seen in Godzilla Raids again. it was a one of the most fierce looking and primal of all of the showa characters.

so when i did this redesign i wanted him to be as what Nathan Explosion would always says "brrrrrutal" ;)

this Anguirus is a ground/burrowing cretaceous Archosaur (possible Crocodylomorph like a sphagesaurid since i don't think Anguirus is a plant eating Ankylosaur) who through is his dry habitat convergent evolved like an armadillo or a turtle.

**this was made with microsoft paint and probably will be my last paint project since i got Gimp XD its still pretty rad though! XD

***He has 3 large toes and 1 small toe on each foot(that's a total of 4 toes). at this angle you can ONLY see 2 of each large toe (the 3rd is not visible at this angle) if you don't believe check any dinosaur or godzilla toy you have at 100% side shot. plus i'm not the only artist to do this. lol

thanks dude its not too bad for an all microsoft paint project haha! im thinking of trying to draw on paper first, scan it, and then paint it digitally with Gimp. i've never done that before but i think thats how most people do it i think.

btw you have the best ankylosaur-ish anguirus design of all! XD

investing on a drawing tablet is a good idea too, i bet your gonna love em. it should come with painting softwares.

Wow. MS Paint. I don't have the patients to do anything with that program.
btw, if you've ever noticed how in the film the back part of his dorsal spikes flop around and have a little split in them. I have a reproduction of a movie manga book thing from '55 and they actually draw him that way. I thought that was so awesome. Either they drew him like the costume looked, or it was intentional. It seems weird that that would be intentional, though. Of course that book has him breathing fire and Godzilla eating whales and zoo animals, I think. It. Is. Awesome.

Yeah i was just trying to get my chops up hahaha plus im poor haha

yeah i've seen 2 different versions of the movie that you see it and then you dont.

it was an actually mistake on Tohos part because the glue that was used for the carapace wasn't strong enough. lol still cool though! XD

oooo where did you get the book? XD

its has 3 large toes and 2 smaller toes on the side. the other large 3rd toe is on the other side not visible at the angle.

interesting idea. Why does he only have two back claws though?

XxHXCLIONxX Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
oh! lol you just cant see his claws on the other side haha just image some land, gravel, and rocks and it'll be all good! XD

i think i gave him 3 or 4 large toes in my mind... yeah one of those hahaha

haha well before i drew the toes i thought to myself "would you see the other toes on the other side?" so then i grabbed one of my bandai godzilla and mechagodzilla toys and angled them to a 100 percent side profile and all i could see was 2 toes. so that's why you only see 2 toes and not 3 or four. if i ever start to do different angles later down the road you'll see the other toes. :)

It just looks like he has two toes. Maybe just hint to the other two toes would work.

The head reminds me of a barynox.

XxHXCLIONxX Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
cool that you noticed that! XD Baryonyx's mouths have a convergent similarity to Crocodilians and Archosaur-Crocodylomorphs because of their piscivore diet. Anguirus originally has a crocodile like head and mouth so its fitting to put him along with archosaur-crocodylomorphs. :)

:iconiseewhatyoudidthere: barynox fished in river/streams and had a bipedal stance. as the years went by they got more aquatic traits, and eventually evolved to todays alligator. I know there were crocadillians back then, but who knows? I'm not as advanced as you :blush:
