This is one of the main Kaijus (a monster of colossal proportions, such as Godzilla) within a comic book project in which I work as a concept and storyboard artist. It is the first part of this specific character design- its infantile stages. The second design is regarding its adult form (posted as a separate portfolio piece). At this stage, the character is mostly a marine creature. The piece was done in reference to a few classical hydra concepts mixed with my own visualisation of the creature based on the description provided by the client.
