The Kraken from Clash of the Titans

This creature took the longest to design. I must have easily done a few hundred concepts, but in the end it was well worth it. I’m very happy with what the character looked like in the film. Thanks MPC!

Your designs are very good, and it saddens me that I had to see them in order to actually know how the entire creature looked like, as most of it was submerged.n
On a personal note, I really love Non-vertebrate animals and was expecting a creature more like that, BUT, since your designs really go someplace different than where LoTR's Watcher In The Water, or Pirates of the Carrebean 2's cracken went, then you have my applause.
Really great work.

Sorry but I was disappointed by the kraken... I mean, a head ? a torso ? In my head a kraken is like a big squid, and it's perfect like that.
Yours look like Godzilla. It has nothing to do in the movie. I'm sure it's not your fault, some people ask you to do something original, but they shouldn't have done something like that.
The sequence is still great in the movie, and he is scary and all. A great monster, but not a great kraken :( really sorry...

(and why did they trow the mechanical owl too !!! arg !)

The only reason I went to see this forgettable movie was for your Kraken.
Which is anything but forgetable..
Easily the best Kraken concept ever. Giant squids are super boring.

These concepts are a real treat, so I can get a better grasp on his anatomy.
Nice job, I think I like him even more now. I'd love to see him fight the cloverfield creature.

And kudos to whoever tossed the mecha-owl-thing.

The first time I saw this thing rear it's ugly mug in the trailer I nearly crapped myself. I love the design personally.., great development and execution! And, I agree with Robb, giant squids are so bland and it's nice to see it go in a new direction.
