Concept Sketch: Awakening the Great Old One



What would happen if H.P Lovecraft was right ? Is Earth enough to handle the Old Ones' power ? Fear, hatred, madness, distress and insanity will show up, but when ?

Front / Right view of the Great Cthulhu.
I freely took as a starting point the various references of Cthulhu on the web, I will work hard on his face detail.

First of all, let me say that you have some very impressive and POWERFUL sketching abilities. The sketches are not very clear to me in terms of what is going on though, but from the looks of things it appears that you've got a big wave approaching a hillside with a church on it an in the wave is a giant octopus? Is this some kind of storm or tsunami wave? Is the octopus just washed up in the wave, or did he summon it and is riding it so that he can get washed up on shore and eat some people?

Sorry but I just need to hear some more narrative I guess. What is going on?

The idea looks VERY cool. I just want you to clear up a little what is the message behind these sketches. A little history about your squid would be nice too. What is he known for? Is he mean or nice? Is this town under threat?

Modeling: Splines Network



I'm working on the Splines Network, using 3dsmax.

-> 3rd user : just check 'Cthulhu' on google, you will see what H.P Lovecraft has done (He was a writter from end nineteenth century to the first twentieth century half part)
Thank you for your support. :)

-> Nomad : I wish I will NOT have such nightmares, lol ! Brrrrr...I have "goose flesh" ! ;)

-> Gardogg : thank you very much.
Indeed, Cthulhu (the name of the big octopus monster) is merging from the ocean and, as you see, he's not a small piece...rising like this from depth makes a big twist into the water, generating some tsunami effect.
Others elements need to be fixed : I still do not know if it would be interesting to put some fanatics, who are running away from the tsunami (putting theses littles jokes into the scene, for example...)
What I'm sure is : Cthulhu has awaken from the ocean and he definitely wants to go somewhere (Well, I do not know where) I still have to add more story elements..
Thanks again for your interest !

-> Tee Double U : Yeah, something like that. Advice : If you see something like that, You gotta run (and pray a lot), for sure ! ;)
