What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

These photos and videos provide a detailed look at this project’s development.

Update:  Some backers are interested in getting two busts instead of one. I've added a $460 reward tier that lets you get two busts. Shipping is $50 worldwide.

When sculpting Cthulhu, I wanted to create a sinister look yet exude grace and beauty. The ebb and flow of the forms are indicative of my style and it brings a unique take to this iconic creature.

The paint work gives this piece added realism and depth. Emphasis was placed on creating a look that compliments the forms of this sculpture. 

Shown below are pictures of the production prototype. The bust that each backer gets will be of similar quality. There will be a slight variance to each one as they are individually hand painted.

The original sculpture was released as a resin kit in 2015. Many have asked if a painted version would ever be made available. With your support, we can gather enough orders to mass produce this painted bust at a high quality and keep it affordable for backers. 

Please help spread the word of our campaign!

My name is Dominic Qwek and I'm a Creature and Character Artist. I have a passion for creating things that dwell in the dark. You can check out my art at dqwek.com. I also work at Blizzard Entertainment as a digital sculptor specializing in collectibles.

 

 

Risks and challenges

The prototypes of Cthulhu are already completed and production can begin after the campaign is funded. We do not foresee any issues unless something unexpected happens and a delay could occur. We will do our best to update backers through out the entire production.
