How To Draw Godzilla

Ah, Godzilla (Gojira in Japanese). He’s been a household name for the past 60 years and he was back again in 2019 with an all-new movie.

Today, let’s learn how to draw Godzilla.

But what if instead of the terrifying monster we know him as, what if we switched it up and made him look adorable? It doesn’t seem like such a stretch to change his appearance from roaring terror to cuddly cuteness because we’ve done just that!

Follow along with our guide and try your hand at drawing this legendary creature yourself!

A Few Tips Before You Start Drawing

  • Godzilla’s body looks a bit hard to draw but do it step by step and you should have no issues.

Let’s Draw Godzilla – Step By Step

Step 1: Let’s start drawing the eyes by making two circles. Note that one is slightly higher and smaller than the other.

Make sure to draw two circles in each eye – one big, one small – which will remain white as you shade the rest black.
Step 2: Draw the snout or nose by drawing a curve starting from the right eye. Extend the bottom part with a longer line and ending the tip upwards near the left eye.
Step 3: Add downward curves on top of each eye to have those brow regions. See guide above as the right one touches the eye.
Step 4: Starting from the right brow, draw a wavy curve to form the head, back, until the tip of Godzilla’s tail.
Step 5: From the tail, extend some two lines to start defining the tail and beginning of the legs. You may align the end of the line below his eyes.
Step 6: Draw a tilted oval shape at the tip of the line you made. This will be one of his feet.
Step 7: Draw the stomach portion by making a large curve from the snout down to the foot.
Step 8: Define the legs by drawing a downward curved stroke that touches the foot. See image as guide.
Step 9: Add three little triangular shapes on the top of his foot to make his toes.
Step 10: On the other side of his body, add two small strokes (with a small space in the middle) to start drawing the second foot.
Step 11: Close the foot by making another outer curve, as seen above.
Step 12: Add two small triangular shapes on top as his toes.
Step 13: Next is to add the spikes on his back! They look like half-stars but just the upper part showing. Start with larger ones from his head and make it smaller as you reach the tail.
Step 14: Just below his snout, draw two small curve strokes that are almost meeting in the middle. These will be his cute arms.
Step 15: Add three, small and pointy tips on each curve as his fingernails.
Step 16: Now time to add details on his face. Draw a short line between his eyes to define the snout. Add two circles on his cheeks as blush. Don’t forget the moustache-like stroke to define his nose.
Step 17: Just near his foot, draw two (or more!) uneven rectangular shapes. These are the outlines of the little buildings in the city.

One can be drawn with a zigzag cut on the corner (for the illusion that it was damaged by our kawaii Godzilla).
Step 18: Add small squares inside each rectangle to represent building windows.
Step 19: Add some wavy strokes at the floor part with double margins.
Step 20: Coloring time! Here’s an inspiration above. You may use green for Godzilla with a darker shade for the spikes. The round tummy section can be lighter with random light, circle spots around his body (for scales), as well as around his eyes. His cheek blush is usually pink! Color the buildings and the water puddle, too.

You did great!
