Here’s the final image of piece I’ve been working on here and there:
And Here's a larger resolution image
And here's a link to a version where the pending meal is nekked.
Again, it all started out as just the Eel, then kind of evolved into a whole piece. I was looking to play around with a large amount of detail to create something that would be difficult to do in a real 3D application because of polycounts, etc. I wish ZB had more control over lighting and materials though...
There was at one time going to be some type of warrior between the creature and her victim defending the poor helpless soul, but I decided it would have just been too much.
I’ll also be posting some other images that show how I handled some of the post work in Photoshop.
For now, I’d love to hear some impressions of the piece.
<EDIT> Mr Hamlet's post reminded me that I forgot to post an observation... For some reason, I was not able to get it to NOT look like a prop in a long lost Harryhausen movie...<EDIT>
