Beach vacations conjure up visions of frolicking in the surf, building sand castles, and possibly even kayaking?
|Hapless kayakers no nothing of the terror beneath the water!|
But what beach vacations most often mean is subconscious fear and dread of the hideous beast that lurks beneath the sea waiting to rise again, Cthulhu!
|Cthulhu keeps on calling me!|
Well, maybe that's just what beach vacations mean to me? Anyway, I read a few H.P. Lovecraft stories while at the Outer Banks and decided to sketch a few Cthulhu concepts with the ultimate goal of creating a ZBrush model from one of the drawings.
The colorized version above is what I decided to go with as the concept for the model. Here is this same sketch before the magic of Photoshop.
|No matter what occurs, Cthulhu will find you!|
I came up with a few other concepts, some bordering on a Zoidberg-esque aesthetic, but none quite fit the bill.
|Don't wake the Kraken!|
Stay tuned for updates on this sculpt, I figure the more ZBrush time I put in the better I'll get! Also, you can get the entire works of H.P. Lovecraft online at Cthulhu Girl's site
