Rodan v2 by Tapwing Rodan v2 by Tapwing
This is mostly a portfolio piece so not much has changed from my first attempt at a Rodan redesign tapwing.deviantart.com/art/Rod… .
the main change is his skin colour wich I've altered to better match the red and tan version of Rodan I've seen around.  


Drawn in Procreate
Rodan-Godzilla

Nice! I can see Legendary giving Rodan a more pteranodon look which I personally think they should.

Thanks ^^ though I think id re-work this design a bit more, maybe try something that borrows more from the earlier version of rodan and a little less of him just being an oversized pterosaur.

I can appreciate that. I ended up liking a Rodan design I did for someone else better than the one I did for myself.

Two minor nitpicks:
1. I think it would look better with more pterosaurian and less dragon-like wings, with the "pinky" finger supporting the entirety of the wing membrane.
2. I would beef him up a bit - make him slightly more robust and avoid shrinkwrapping.

Like I said though, minor nitpicks. It's a really cool concept.

Thanks for the critique ^^ 

The main reason I chose the wings I did was because the Rodan I was bacing him off of had multiple fingers to support the wing. 
I do have an alternate version I was thinking of making though that uses more pterosaurian wings based on what I can find of the early Rodan.

As for "beefing him up" I actually took your advice on that one and thinkned his torso and arms a little more.
