My entry for the Clash of Creatures 2017 by 3D Proven Systems.
Vodnik is a mythical creature from the Czech (Slavic) legends. In English his name can be translated as a Water Goblin. He usually appears as a creepy pipe smoking beast. Mixture between man, frog and fish dressed in a green suit and hat with ribbons. His home is in pond banks near reeds and willow trees. He drowns those who pass by and collect theirs souls in lid-covered cups under the water.
I created this digital maquette entirely in ZBrush, rendered it in Keyshot and did postproduction in Affinity Photo.
