The ''Lamer'' Godzilla - original and redone by Vrahno
The ''Lamer'' Godzilla - original and redone
So, there's some background info about this one.

I'm from one of those countries where the Godzilla franchise, and 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 have only been familiar with Godzilla through the old Hanna-Barbera cartoon show, but didn't know that there were also movies. When Emmerich's infamous and much-hated 1998 re-imagining came out, I, as an ignorant and reptile-obsessed kid, instantly fell in love with it. That movie was a giant success over here, unlike in the US.

I saw a short, bullshit report on TV around that time, in which they basically bashed the Japanese movies by intentionally playing clips from only the more "infamous" Godzilla films, like Son of Godzilla and Godzilla VS Megalon, while simultaneously praising the American remake as a clearly superior update. Of course, 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 "MusukoGoji" suit (used in Son of Godzilla) and all the other ridiculous shit that they had showed. I made it to poke fun at the "lamer" Godzilla, because, hey, 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. Granted, that didn't end up looking like the MusukoGoji suit either... but that's for the better.
