The character of Godzilla was first brought to life on film in 1954. He is a huge, prehistoric reptilian sea monster who rises from the ocean to wreak havoc on unsuspecting coastal cities.

Godzilla is today considered a pop culture icon. He has starred in more than 30 films, video games, books, and television shows. He has evolved from a metaphor for nuclear destruction to an antihero who instinctively defends the interests of humanity.

Did you know? Godzilla's name is a combination of two Japanese words meaning "gorilla" and "whale."

2. Erase a portion of the circle to make way for Godzilla’s snout. Use curved lines to draw the roughly “W” shaped nose. Use curved lines and a small shaded oval to indicate the nostrils. Then, use a series of curved lines to draw the lower jaw. Note the jagged edge near the cheek.

5. Draw a series of short, curved lines that meet at jagged points descending from the back of the head. This outlines the back of the neck. From there, draw a “U” shaped line, beginning the bent arm. Use curved lines that meet at points to draw the fingers or claws, and additional curved lines to outline the back of the hand. Draw a curved line across the tip of each finger to distinguish the sharp claw. Draw several “C” shaped lines on the arm to indicate scales.

6. Draw a long, curved line from the jaw to below the hand. Allow another curved line to overlap the first and extend further. Draw a third curved line descending from the arm. The latter lines form the leg. Connect the lines using a series of short lines that meet at points, forming the toes. Then, draw a curved line across each toe to distinguish the claw. Finally, draw “C” shaped lines in clusters all over the body, indicating scales.
