Some background info about this one.
I'm from one of those countries where the Godzilla franchise, or for that matter, classic monster movies in general, never had any sort of history. Just about everyone thinks that Godzilla is the brainchild of Roland Emmerich. As a kid, I've only been familiar with the franchise through the old Hanna-Barbera cartoon show, but didn't know that there were also movies. When Emmerich's much-hated 1998 re-imagining (which, unlike in the US, was a giant success over here) came out, I instantly fell in love with it.
They ran a short, bullshit report on TV around that time, in which they basically bashed the Japanese movies by intentionally playing clips from only the shoddier Godzilla films, like Son of Godzilla and Godzilla VS Megalon, while simultaneously praising the American remake as a superior update. I totally fell for it, and made that drawing based on my sketchy memories of the TV report, deliberately exaggerating the ugly design of the Godzilla suit and all the other ridiculous shit that they showed. I made it to poke fun at the "lamer" Godzilla, because back then, this was all that I knew about those films. I only had the chance to actually watch them for myself a decade later.
Recently, I decided to redo it, trying to guess which monsters those were supposed to be and having a more "respectful" go at drawing them, but also preserving some of their goofy charm.
