Godzilla: King of the Monsters - Rodan Final Approved 3D Claws Concept (See Credits)

Hand / claws Concepts I designed for Rodan.

I was brought on to the Godzilla: King of the Monsters pre-vis phase through Studio ADI to help design Rodan, King Ghidorah and Mothra. We ended up focusing on Rodan, after sculptor Tim Martin created an awesome maquette for Rodan based on some of the thumbnail silhouettes I had sketched up early in the design process. After 3D scanning his sculpture, I was tasked with redesigning and developing all the further iterations of Rodan's body (Wing variations, hand / claw variations, head variations, tail variations, color designs, scale designs and variations, fire / lava and debris designs, poses, etc.) all of which was a group effort in the design department consisting of Bryan Wynia who sculpted the wing texture in this final 3D concept, Ken Barthelmey, Miguel Gerrero, Justice Joseph, for a brief moment, Carlos Huante(!), and myself. The Sculpting Department included Tim Martin on Rodan and Adam Dougherty on Mothra, all supervised by Tom Woodruff Jr.
