Del Toro shared some of the steps taken to make the creature in the upcoming The Shape of Water. As always del Toro’s eye for details when it shows as he goes step by step to creating the creature.

3 Tweets on creature detailing: I have said this before, but… Painting is underpainting and overpainting. Transparencies of color, no solids, mottling, and stenciling and detailing and NOT following form but “crossing” over it…

In the same manner, the best is to layer the sculpting, so you start with the basic shape and volume (lines that flow, echo each other, give a sense of weight, etc) and remove what doesn’t work (we removed the shoulder fins, too busy)

Then you add detailing, pores, veins, bumps, scars- all very subtle and seldom NOT to be highlighted by paint. You are “painting” with volume (your light will show these details.
