Default Gallery submission Cthulu Art

This piece is of a worshiping statue for the followers of Shab Naggurath. I used minimal light to bring out the 'B-Movie' brass like material I made. I call it 'B-Movie' brass because all gold statues in the Cthulu movies look like painted on brass. The blood tear is is there for contrast to the sculpture. And symbolizes the life giving force of the 'Great Old One', Shab-Naggurath.

Completion time 3 hours.

I dont think that there's anywhere near enough detail... sorry. Everything seems flata and uninteresting.... The Head which is actually pretty well modelled from what I can see is just lost completley in the darkness. The blood is quite nicely done but again a bit flat. The tubes out of the back of the head need a lot more work they look like bent cylinders... which I guess is what they are. This could be a cool piece but 3 hours isnt enough time to spend on it and IMHO it's not up to going in the gallery.

Please dont take these comments personally I'm just trying to help you out constructivley. I would start a WIP thread and take this as your starting point not finishing point

I have to agree with Pure on this it's to flat and needs more work before it could go in the gallery.

The model is fine, IMO but you should put some more interesting textures on it and lighten it, maybe worth a thought.
