Godzilla: King of the Monsters - King Ghidorah / Monster Zero

Here are some closer shots of the shoulders and "arms" of one of the rough King Ghidorah / Monster Zero concepts I explored early in the design phase before jumping on Rodan. I came up with a solution to bridge the gap between the original Ghidorah wings that had a fan-like structures with fingers emanating from it's sides to the desired bat wing structure from the Director. I felt this design struck a nice sense of creepiness in relation to the fan-like fundamental structure with it's resemblance spider legs, but ultimately fulfilling the desire to have a bat-like silhouette.

I was brought on to the Godzilla: King of the Monsters pre-production phase through Studio ADI to help design Rodan, King Ghidorah and Mothra. Before focusing on Rodan, I worked on King Ghidorah / Monster Zero. I went through a handful of designs, starting with quick thumbnail silhouettes, then flushed out / blocked out rough 3D concepts all under the supervised by Tom Woodruff Jr.
