Godzilla Ep103: Nanotech Creature 01 by filbarlow Godzilla Ep103: Nanotech Creature 01 by filbarlow
Our third Godzilla episode featured one of the most difficult monsters to design because it changed it's appearance from shot to shot. I asked the episode's Director Tim Eldred to visually summarize what he needed in as few designs as possible. I ended up supplying NINE different creature designs based off the storyboards, but Tim requested more, I appreciated his organizational skills but I was running out of time, and the designs were becoming increasingly complex taking longer to draw. I had to put my foot down and move on to the next show, so the hydroplaning version ended up being done by someone else, or taken directly from Tim's sketches. It turned out pretty well.

Amorphous creatures are just a headache and it's still a pain, I've recently scanned all of my designs, and have begun coloring two other versions, and simply got bored figuring out the stripes. So I figured I might as well show you this and move onto the next creature.

Damn, this one was just really hard to look at when animated due to the stripes undulating constantly.
Creative idea, sure, but really difficult to see dimension.

Yeah the plan was to make children suffer unnecessarily. You can blame the Director, I was following his design.

No I was joking, but it was the Director's design.

Oh yeah! I forgot about that lol! I forgot who it functioned. I know it was made to eat garbage so it got bigger the more it ate?

The stripes really help to define the weird shapes.  Is this based on those poisonous sea slugs with the bright warning colors?
