Dear Creature Spot members and viewers.
This is my take on that good old H.P. Lovecraft deity Cthulhu.
My inspiration was giant squids, instead of the human like head and eye orientation he is usually depicted with. Squids have these squinty eyes and slanted slim pupils with eyes placed high above their head, giving them an almost arrogant cold stare, something I felt Cthulhu would definitely have. Large gills and various sucking cups, water intake holes and weird outer-worldly physiognomy gives him a strange aquatic feel too. I toyed a bit with some extra tentacles that I could attach later on to the mask, but practicality won over design and I gave him more of cluster of tentacles.
He was sculpted in water based clay over a head armature and will be made into a two part plaster mold, where I can cast latex masks out of. The mask itself will be available from my homepage in a month or so.
Lastly a little Halloween special- a small Werewolf mask sculpt also made in water based clay. It was made into a latex mask later and used for some theater in Copenhagen
There are something about his lines and his look that may have been inspired from Rick Bakers fantastic design work on "American Werewolf in London" but I tried to make this my own style as well.
I hope you like my work and will give my homepage a visit.
And yes, I'm available for work and will travel...;)
