Since Godzilla 2: King of the Monsters has released in theaters, concept art from the film. Is beginning to surface online! Today we're highlighting one official piece of Godzilla 2 concept artwork by Ken Barthelmey. His early concepts for King Ghidorah gave the menacing Hydra from space a dramatically different look. The design Legendary went with was more inline with Ghidorah's original Toho version, which most fans appreciated. However, it's always fun to see what other renditions artists can come up with for such iconic movie Monsters.

Also, here is an early concept Ken created for Rodan as well:

Thank God these weren't the designs....holy ****!

I actually like the Rodan design.  They could reuse it for another flying titan if they change a few things. But that Ghidorah is just  uncomfortable.

Every Ghidorah ever to this concept art: You are a disappointment

What the hell...

Ghidorah looks like an eel..

Very cool design. It's just not Ghidorah. They're always going to ask the artists/designers to think outside the box and stretch for concepts. They did the same for Godzilla and the MUTOs in 2014. I would love to see this guy take a stab at Biollante.
