Summoned from the Depths

Hi everyone, it's been some time since I posted here and am excited to share this new image I just created.
I've been trying to find the time to post some new work, and with the recent ZBrush 4R2 release, I had to get my hands on all the new features...

So, this is a personal piece I created for my portfolio. I love aquatic life and the unique forms of life that thrive in our oceans, so I'm constantly gravitating toward designing creatures within this theme.

I wanted to depict the moment when this creature, summoned against its will, first breaches the sea. Angered by the ferocious swells, tormented by the frigid wind and riddled with disdain as it scornfully peers out to the one who conjured him from the silent depths below.

Thanks everyone here at Creature Spot and Davi Blight once again for a site devoted to creature enthusiast all around!

Hope you enjoy!

Thanks Davi!

I tried to convey the frustration of walking on land with two tentacles for legs in his pose. haha... Animation would definitely help to convey his demeanor and physical form.
