Cthulhu, Chris Nichols (3D)

Lovely work! The skin detail is terrific, and I love your take on the proportions. Tor Books just happens to be doing a Lovecraft-themed month on their web site and have an art thread for all sorts of artists (including some really well-known ones) to post their own interpretations of Cthulhu. You should post this there!

#32

very cool. The pose isn’t really convincing me though. I might suggest a re-pose and re-render.


#33

Very good textures.

Wow thanks so much for the complements. Really appreciate them.

walrus: Thanks for the suggestion. Im a huge fan of cthulhu as well and i’ll definitely post my version up.
AlexCo: hahaha yeah i know, took some artistic license with my version. Wings just take up sooo much polycount.
So with this model I had around 3 and a half weeks to get something together for the Zbrush User event so I dug through some concepts and chose this guy. Initialy he was going to full scale size of a mountain but a foot high seemed a bit more realistic in the timeframe, also its a bit differnt from the rest of the designs of Cthulhu.
I’ll post some breakdowns later on.
Heres some screenshots from zbrush of the model.

Very nice work! I only wish the subsurface was a bit stronger, your render looks great anyways.

Cheers
