I've looked at abyssal fishes with dread and a big curiosity since I was a little boy. So when I saw a very nice 3D picture of a similar fish (obviously in great CGTalk forums ) I wished to model my own one.
I choose this strange anglerfish because I wanted one with luminescent appendix above the mouth, and this is the most described in the net.
I've also seen a beautiful book in a library full of impressive pictures (maybe real photos, but I think beautiful drawings) of these monsters.
I hope to be able to render the athmosphere of mystery that surrounds these nearly unknown creatures.
This fish is modeled in 3DStudioMax, rendered with V-Ray and modified a little (colours above all) in Photoshop. Thank you for your c&c, dEDa
