I'm really proud and happy to share this new work, the Hound of Tindalos original concept by me. I was inspired by the Cthulhu Mythos and in the short story "The Hounds of Tindalos" by Frank Belknap Long
Sculpted in ZBrush, modeled and retopologized in Maya, textured in Subtance Painter and rendered in Arnold.
The Hounds are said to inhabit the angles of time, while other beings (such as humankind and all common life) descend from curves, It is said that they have long, hollow tongues or proboscises to drain victims' body-fluids, and that they excrete a strange blue pus or ichor. They can materialize through any corner if it is fairly sharp—120° or less. When a Hound is about to manifest, it materializes first as smoke pouring from the corner, and finally the head emerges followed by the body. It is said that once a human becomes known to one of these creatures, a Hound of Tindalos will pursue the victim through anything to reach its quarry.
Hope you like it
