So was this a render straight out of maya or did you do some post work and/or use various passes?

This piece looks great, the render almost looks like a maquette, could you possible share your composting layers? I would love to see how you put this piece together!

Perhaps it's just me, but I always wonder why you guys try to imitate the dof of a camera. I'm not talking about the quality of your work which I find super-excellent or the render which is outstanding, but only the use of dof.
If I were to look at it with my own eyes, I would not have this depth of field effect. And if your Cthulhu were so small I would not be able to see it with my own eyes, the dof would be even much more blurring. So the only thing that's left is the impression of a small puppet being photographed.Which takes away a huge part of my enjoyment as the realism of skin etc does show you want this to be real.

Of course this is your choice and I accept that. And once again: this is stunning work. But I, for one, prefer to see with my eyes when I can, not through a camera lens with its optical limits.
All you have to do is become who you were before you became who you are.

Thats an interesting point sir. I personaly like DOF and find it really helps to make foreground elements pop out from the background as well as directing focus to the creature.
I also think that is adds depth to the image because before the DOF effect my picture was looking quite flat.
