Heyo! My name's Allison Theus and I'm a freelance artist. I recieved a BFA at Carnegie Mellon and went on to get a masters at CMU's Entertainment Technology Center in games industry-related stuff. I've worked for a couple people here and there, on projects ranging from Spectrobes II to Warhammer. Creatures are my passion, so it's an honor to be here with all you guys!
Most of my recent stuff is under NDA, but here are some favs:
Rasknitt's Minions - A Skaven piece done for Warhammer Fantasy's Edge of Night expansion.
An entry for the Splice contest over on DA.
And some personal doodling.
Oh, you can also catch me over on DeviantArt under BeastofOblivion. Thanks for looking!
Hello to all!
You may know me as Kashivan (Kashubo Ivan).. but may be not^^ anyway!... Currently - I am the Lead Concept Artist in the video games industry.
I like to draw something "horror" and "freaky fantasy" in my spare time.
I hope you all will enjoy my staff^^

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...;)
This is my first post on Creature Spot. Man, there are some amazing artists on this site! Here's a few of my sculptures going back from 2007 to the present. By the way, the chicken's name is Arthur.
