This is my interpretation of H.P. Lovecraft’s fishman or also known as “Deep One”. The whole model is rigged and I used cinema4D’s new Pose Space Deformation features. So the character has also some basic muscle stimulation.
Lovecraft himself described the DeepOne as following
I think their predominant color was a greyish-green, though they had white bellies. They were mostly shiny and slippery, but the ridges of their backs were scaly. Their forms vaguely suggested the anthropoid, while their heads were the heads of fish, with prodigious bulging eyes that never closed. At the sides of their necks were palpitating gills, and their long paws were webbed. They hopped irregularly, sometimes on two legs and sometimes on four. I was somehow glad that they had no more than four limbs. Their croaking, baying voices, clearly used for articulate speech, held all the dark shades of expression which their staring faces lacked … They were the blasphemous fish-frogs of the nameless design – living and horrible.
For this project I used zbrush, Cinema4d, Substance painter and of course Photoshop for the collages.
Altogether I would need about 2 days for everything.
A big thanks to all photographers of the background pictures
