Artist | Professional | Film & Animation
Creator of Zooniverse, took a detour through Hollywood for a few decades, now what was I doing?

Back in 1997 while still in the middle of the Extreme Ghostbusters (XGB) production, I pitched this style for Godzilla. It was rejected for looking too close to XGB.
This artwork has never been shown publicly before, and very few within the studio saw it due to the secrecy dictated by Centropolis. I've keep this art secret for 18 years, and I thought it would be the perfect gift for my $5+ patrons on Patreon.

I've created an 8 page PDF mini-biography, describing what I was doing at the time and showing all of the art done for that first pass, including my first attempt at designing Godzilla for animation.

I have no intentions of releasing this art publicly and no one else has it. If you are interested, this is the only way to see my first Godzilla style. We are halfway to meeting the first milestone, if we reach it I can begin posting to DA again.

Hey, Fil.  Thought you might like to see this:…

The EGB's have just debuted in IDW's Ghostbusters: Get Real #2.   Very excited.  ^_^

Did you base Slimer's design for the new Ghostbusters off from the original cartoon?

Yes, I had Real Ghostbusters model sheets that I used as starting point for my designs.

So, any more Godzilla-art coming up? :D (Big Grin)

I've collected all of the art that I did for the 1st rejected Godzilla style that I did in 1997 into an 8 page PDF available for my patrons who pay $5 and up. I won't be posting to DA again until I hit my first milestone.

Did you design the creatures in Mother Brain's lair in Captain N?  If so, I'd love to see the concept art.

Here are screen captures of what I'm talking about:…

No I had nothing to do with those designs. They were most likely done by Marcello Vignali, Mike Goguen or some other artist from my old ALF team, maybe Ed Lee.

By the way that probably is a marshmallow on that Rhino-like character, we used to do stupid stuff like that all the time on ALF :)

Can I request for my fanmade monster Ghidorah, the crossbreed fusion of King Ghidorah 2001 and Hyper Gyaos.
