I feel very fortunate getting on this show on the ground floor, before the design work was turned over to visual effects and working directly with the directors and producers. And I’m very grateful for the “creature concept designer” credit. It’s very rare to get that on a TV show, so it means a lot to me.
Here are some design showing the Shoggoth standing up and eating. The idea for blood to gush out of the creatures gills was an early one. I remember Yann Demange, the director, describing it to me over the phone. I was so excited they were going to go that dark with the show.
Finally got a chance to see the episode last night. I can’t wait to post more of the work. Such an incredible first episode!
