Here in this monster lesson - how to draw Godzilla, the KING OF ALL MONSTERS! - I was going to leave the 'what's he melting with his fire beam part' - up to you. As you can see, this completely fell through, and instead --- he's roasting a marshmallow.

I have to say... this lesson was really enjoyable to make. I hope you like it.

Let's begin!


First Step - A Structure to Draw a King... of Monsters!

Similar to a dragon or a dinosaur - this reptile-like beast is simple enough to draw when we map out its structure before-hand. Below is the arrangement I came up with --- see if this helps...

And as you can see - I plan on incorporating Godzilla's 'fire blast' - as marked off by the pink line. This'll be helpful as when drawing the mouth, you can plan the positioning of the teeth - the lower right row will need to be omitted as they will be obscured by the blue fire beam.

Well I don't know about you but I'm ready to draw! Let's go...

Second Step - How to Draw Godzilla

Before you tackle this monster, let's note some key features - that once incorporated into your drawing - will make it look all the more like it's 'supposed to' --- a likeness to the original monster.

There's the 'puffy eyebrows' and cheeks, small pointed ears, a broad body width, and the 'frilly' spikes along his back. These things all account for his trademark look - thins we need to incorporate for the likeness we're going for.

That in mind - let's draw...

So... how does yours look? What did you have him 'melting away' with his fire blast? Marshmallow like mine? A little more geared to the movies, and an entire city would be your best bet. :-)

Well there you go. You're done!
