MONSTURRA's New Look v3-Feburary 25, 2017
I'm still working on the old boy. This one is probably a bit more simple than my last few designs, but oh well.  Also, as a question, what do you guys think of the U-shaped vs. pepple-like scales? Do you guys prefer Monsturra with one or another? Personally, I think I prefer the U-shaped scales myself, as they are easier to draw.

Monsturra's New Look-Feburary 22 23, 2017
Well, here we go again... :shrug:


I decided to give Monsturra a bit of makeover again, as I wanted to spice up his design a bit, as I've felt his previous design was a bit bland. Plus, there were some features that I liked on the past concept designs that I wanted to bring back. So, here we are, and I hope this will work better for me.

Anyway, here's the whole creative lowdown:
The top pic was done last night/early this morning, and features a ok design. However, I wasn't really satisfied with the direction I had, so I went with the design at the bottom.

That one features:
-A more wolf-like muzzle
-Five nasal hornets
-A large bony crest between the eyes
-two horns behind the eyes
-Four cranial horns
-Dragon/Godzilla-style ears
-Lion/Tiger-style eyes
-Teeth modeled after a alligator's. The mouth does have mammalian-like lips, but teeth are exposed, like most depictions of Godzilla
-Three rows of dorsal plates
-Scaly throat
-Horns are modeled after the pachycephaleosaurs Dracorex & Stygimoloch

While I do think this design might need a bit of a refinement later on, as I don't care how some features came out, I do overall like the design that I'm going for.

As always, feedback is welcome, including negative ones.

Warning, Warning! To all my watchers, a new update will be forthcoming! You all have been warned! :evillaugh:
I'm going to use Monsturra Rises as the title for the story's title. It's always been a good title to me, and it works as this is Monsturra's introduction story. As for The Rise of the Behemoths title, it doesn't really work with me, as the kaiju already rose by the time of the first book. However, it might be the title of a mini-series I want to do, which is more Internet exclusive.

Hey all,

After a mild break from thinking about the Behemoth Chronicles kaijuverse (I'm iffy on using the Monsturraverse title, since that's a bit close to the Legendary Picture's Monsterverse moniker), I have decided to, very slowly, work out some ideas for my kaiju story/series. Keep in mind that these are simple concepts at the moment, and nothing is concrete, but it is, at the very least, SOMETHING that I can work with.

I have decided, after conversing with a friend on Facebook Messenger, that I'm going to use the old idea of Monsturra being a clone created as a guardian for mankind via DNA taken from one of the first behemoths in my kaijuverse's setting. This monster is, of course, named Monsturradon rex aka Monsturra Rex, who is essentially the Godzilla 1954 of The Behemoth Chronicles. Personally, I think it is a pretty unique way to do your main kaiju without falling back on the old "natural prehistoric beast" and "ancient bio-weapon guardian" tropes of old. Plus, this idea did go pretty far until I decided to drop it for some inane reason, but I decided to resurrect and soldier through it instead tossing it when it is no longer useful.

Granted, I'm debating how I want to approach the story with there being two versions of the same characters. I always point to the Dragon Ball series when I talk about the Monsturra Rex/Monsturra relationship being similar to the King Piccolo/Piccolo Jr. relationship. Of course, I could make their appearances similar, but different from each other. This could be subtle like larger spikes/horns on one of them, or even a different coloration. Like, maybe, Monsturra Rex is a more green-ish color, while Monsturra keeps his classic navy blue coloration (though both have gray underbellies), and maybe different color eyes. Also, I'm debating if I want to kill off Monsturra Rex or keep him alive in the series. I'm a little bit leaning towards the former, as it would solve some story-telling issues I have in that direction.

Of course, this also raises the question of what type of story I want to tell with my Monsturra story (which is going to be retitled, again)? Do I want a origin story about him? What type of enemy or enemies should he face in the story? Should they be linked to him somehow or be completely different? These are some of the questions I'm still figuring out about the whole thing.

Now, with that major news out of the way, I am going to announce that I'm thinking of changing Monsturra's flame breath color again. I just don't think orange breath works with Monsturra that much, and I want to spice it up a little.

Anyway, that's all I really have to say. You all are welcome to leave any feedback if you want.

Later,
Jake
