All the paper is hand made, and varying in texture. Some pages are REALLY rough, and that's what has made drawing in this book so unpredictable and fun. One page in particular was so raggy I just had to draw this......

The paper was so rough that most of the texture and grittiness is due to the maker on the paper surface.

The moment I saw you drawing Godzilla, I wanted to meddle. I held back to see what you would do. 
At the risk of being over medling I have taken the liberty of giving you some pointers that I hope will improve your drawing and future work.
So, here is where you were at  at the end of class.

Below, I have redifined the solids  in red. I totally see what you were doing in creating stark contrasting  lighting from the flames but it was looking a bit flat and if you remember what I was saying in class about  imagining the shapes and curves of you subject and how light would fall on the curves, it might be  a bit more like this.

here is the revised black version.

Godzilla has a massive tail and I felt that a longer tail would  balance the figure better.

Finally, I revised the  position of the arms. By doing this I have allowed for  more of Godzilla's fins  to be more prominent, which will also create a  more identifiable shape.

I hope this helps. Let me know what you think.
