How to Draw Godzilla


Draw three circles, one small, medium, and large.


Next start shaping the guide lines with sketching of the tail, head and mid body.


In this step sketch the image of the face and move down to drawing his arm and put a little muscle to it, after all he is strong.The tip of his tail can be sketched out as well.


Remember Godzilla looks like a big lizard/dragon. Draw the back lining of his back and foot as well. This step I found a little tricky because of the shape of his back.


Here is were you will do the feet and foot claws. Draw some detail in the mouth and detail the hidden hand.


Start adding the spikes on his tail. A good way to make the shape of these is by thinking of a maple leaf. That was the whole idea when they created Godzilla. His spikes on the back were suppose to resemble a maple leaf.


Now again go up the tail and continue to draw the spikes until you reach the top.


As you go up the spikes get more intense and dense. Some may look like the tips of swords.


As you can see the spikes are real intense by now and should be practically all you need. You don't want to over do the amount of spikes you add or they will start to look messed up.


Now what you do is erase all the guide lines and sketch lines, and you should end up with a sketch like the one above. Good job on a work well done.

Description: Created as a fictional Japanese monster, Godzilla became one of the world’s most recognized sci-fi creatures. Making his film debut back in 1954, a 164 foot Godzilla arose from the Pacific Ocean and terrorized Tokyo killing thousands. Growing up, Godzilla became a big part of my household. I can remember getting ready for the creature double feature to come on and staying vegged to the T.V for hours. The Godzilla shows I watched was with him defeating other monsters like Biollante, King Ghidorah and so on. The coolest thing was his atomic ray that came out of his mouth, almost like a breath of fire. Than there was the birth of Godzuki, he was supposed to be Godzilla’s nephew. Nothing more was really explained about the little guy than that. A question that I always use to ask is “what the heck is Godzilla anyway?” The answer to that came just recently. He is a combination of different types of dinosaurs but more so of a Tyrannosaurus, Stegosaurus, and Iguanodon. In this tutorial the steps are simple and the instructions on how to draw Godzilla are pretty easy. He was a sci-fi creature but I guess he could be a cartoon as well. I did sketch out this drawing on pad first then to Photoshop. I couldn’t really get his rocky skin to come threw without him looking deformed. This image of Godzilla is from one of his last movies ‘Final Wars” I think he kept his original image pretty good. Well have loads of fun sketching him out, I know I did.
