Making Of 'Call of Cthulhu'

by Giorgio Grecu

So from the bottom one to the top they represent: the arrival of Cthulhu on earth and people idolizing him, the building of the tomb, Cthulhu being imprisoned inside, the stars aligning, Cthulhu being killed by the spear just as he is freed. Little things like this are very fun to do; they add a bit more mystery or depth to the storytelling and can be an extra reward for a careful observer.

In this final step, I worked on the floor and rendered the puny humans, finalized the lighting with cast shadows and added a bit of motion blur to its arm to suggest movement. You can see a few more steps in between here (Fig.06).



And here’s the final image (Fig.07).


It was lots of fun to work with such cool subject. I hope you enjoyed this overview, if you have any questions feel free to drop me a mail at [email protected]. I’m always available for freelance, commissions and new job opportunities so if you’re looking for a concept or 3D artist please get in touch.
