Do you dare answer the call?
Ominous visions and dreams of Cyclopean cities beneath the sea can mean but one thing, Cthulhu is calling! This ZBrush sculpt was conceived during a beach vacation when I had way too much free time, due to being pasty and fearing sunburn, so I nestled inside and read up on my H.P. Lovecraft. Specifically his short The Call of Cthulhu in which he outlines our subconscious fear and dread of the hideous beast that lurks beneath the sea waiting to rise again, Cthulhu!
From a modeling standpoint this was a pretty basic sculpt, I started with a ZBrush ZSphere armature and refined the sculpt into its final form. The rendering was entirely done in ZBrush using various diffuse, specular and shadow passes and then composited into an angry seascape in Photoshop. The After Effects turntable was created just because I love fooling around After Effects.
