King Ghidorah Redesign by TGping King Ghidorah Redesign by TGping
Whoo! Those who saw me at G-fest saw this first! And it was awesome.

Ghidorah towers over Godzi tgping.deviantart.com/art/Supe... @ 225 meters in height. Shear size alone is overwhelming. Not only that but KG has the ability to terraform a planet...

Plain Epic...I have never seen a redesign of King Ghidorah before...and this is perfect...I really like how you did his many heads and how the color fits well, and yet it still stays true to the original design. It really looks great. You have made the King look better than the world has ever seen and you are truly inspiring to any Godzilla fan. The design is great. The technique is great. The originality isn't bad, but everyone can clearly see that it is King Ghidorah so that is not a bad thing. I personally rate it four and a half stars. Well done!

There have been many depictions of Godzilla's most famous opponent, but none are as unique, enormous, and terrifying as this. The long necks make him able to look Godzilla down (although the heads are a little small for me), and his tails look like they could be used as maces. The most impressive feature that makes this version unique are his wings having hands and being able to squat down on all fours like a pterosaur. And over 200 meters tall? That would easily make him one of the largest kaiju ever recorded. And the ability to terraform a planet makes him an even more terrifying threat. Overall, this is one of my favorite depictions of King Ghidorah, and I think this is what Monster X should have turned into in Final Wars.

Okay as a dragon fanboy/nerd YOU HAVE MADE SOMETHING PERFECT! It has 4 limbs, easily recognizable as a wyvern, impressive wingspan, amazing tail, heads that ARE PERFECT Ryu heads, (Japanese dragon) the detailing is amazing I love how you can see a bit of its skeleton! The anatomy on the legs is beautiful! I love this I LOVE THIS SO MUCH!

This would be cool as it's own monster but this looks nothing like Ghidorah at all.

Well the point is to have the design be a big departure while still having the core recognizable features, ie. three heads, gold(ish) colour, etc.

I'll admit the colour is a bit of a departure from the usual, but everyone else seems to see enough of a resemblance to Ghidorah to be satisfied. You're the only one who seems to say otherwise.

I know I've commented here before, but I wanted to say that if the rebooted franchise ever gets permission to use King Goldilocks in a film, I hope your design is the one they use.

Impressive; most impressive.

I am beyond thankful that someone actually implemented the pterosaur design for the wings, because ever since I was little I was troubled by how ungainly, top-heavy, and stiff Ghidorah looked. As it stands, your redesign is far more epic and alien than any before while still holding true to the main concept: a massive three-headed dragon with whom you do not screw around. Again, well done.

I have seen many redesigns of this Legendary Kaiju and by far this is the best quite frankly I always thought he needed more Pterosaur -like wings and is size makes him seem much more like the planetary threat they made him out to be in the movies. The only real draw is the heads could use a little more mass. But great job!!

Okay first off WOW! Second, Im blown away at how unique your redesign makes KG look yet also keeps his form similar to the original Ghidorah.

Im in love with your design of his wings and his heads.
