Here's another redesign, this time of Godzilla 1954. I basically tried to make the original suit more modern and beefy (A lot of Shin features like the gills and ribcage) while retaining everything that made the 54 suit, well, the 54 suit. Shoulders are a little broad but they've grown on me.

Blender still. I plan to try and transition to ZBrush maybe this summer.

That's a very cool Godzilla design! Reminds me a little of the 1984 poster art as well. I'd enjoy seeing a design like that in the next Toho film.

Eh I don't paint really ever, but I feel it'd look really good painted.

^Agreed, that epic design deserves some paint.

Quick question: what brand(s) of paint and finishes do y'all use for your customs? Right now I'm using Vallejo for my paint, but no finishes like Mod-Podge. Anyone got a brand that they like?

Here is my Godzilla Ultima sculpt. I've really grown an appreciation for this design after attempting to make it. His shovel jaw was fun to sculpt.

Not exactly 'custom' but I tried to repaint the old Pirates of the Caribbean figure as a Poster-Color style 1933 Ann Darrow. Mixed results...my plan now is to claim any sloppy paint, scuffs, or generally lousy outcome is the effect of being attacked by dinosaurs while being drug through the bushes by a giant ape, and it took several hours of work to make it so accurate. No one will notice!
