Stefano Ciarrocchi is making the first steps to modelling a 3D bust of H.P. Lovecraft using the Blender software. He obviously hasn’t quite got the period clothing yet, as he’s using a 1970s ‘Bill Gates’ collar and tie that Lovecraft would have run screaming from. But it’s an interesting try in 3D.
Masket Charro gets a lot closer, and avoids the ‘uncanny valley’ effect by going a little toony. Still let down by the collar and tie.
In a similar 3D format, the My neighbor Cthulhu scene. Ruined by the crappiest sort of sign lettering. But in this case one can buy and download the 3D model, in which case the lettering could presumably be removed. Although beware that it’s a .Blend file. Though Blender is free, navigating the infernal Blender interface (to cleanly extract a 3D mesh with aligned material zones) is usually a bit of a nightmare.
It helps if you know Miyazaki, to get the sweetly inter-twingled cultural reference in this scene.
If you want to do something similar then the Miyre Store has a good and affordable Lovecraft 3D figure for the Poser software, and there’s a free pack of face expressions for him.
