Happy to finally call this done! Personal project done between jobs.
Last month me and the great Sadan Vague decided to collab on some Creature Design, so we started sharing the Sculpt and texturing for 5 or 6 times. Once the creature was done, I decided to put it in a scene with a bit of story. A group of Scientists has discovered a completely new species almost perfectly preserved inside a block of ice found in deep abysses. Color of the skin has damaged with ages but skin, bones and some of the organs are good enough to let the scientists deeply explore the new discovery. Experiments include tests with electromagnetic-impulses in the two brains discovered in the beast.

Final renders done in Blender Cycles.

Will share more info and shots soon.
