This is Fobozo, my first character sculpt in zBrush. He's an ageing supervillian, who lives in an underpass below a busy main road with his only friend, Backchat, a stray cat he found abandoned on the hard shoulder near his home.
Fobozo (full name: Facetious Obnoxious Bozoh) is the last son of distinguished supervillain father Sarcasticus Insidious Bozoh III and mother Bellitla Priss.
Much to his parents chagrin, Fobozo's attempts at wreaking havoc on the unsuspecting city almost always fail. His ill-fated plans include the hi-jacking of a lightbulb factory to break all the bulbs (by shaking them vigorously or dropping the boxes). In this Fobozo hopes to "plunge the city into a night-time world of perpetual darkness and shadowy terror", but all that happens is the city-folk revert to candlelight and are impressed with how beautiful everything looks in the warm, flickering glow.
Fobozo retreats to his dingy lair and laments in thespian woe to Backchat, who pays very little attention.
All Fobozo wants is to be installed in his father's pride, and to reflect the crippling misery he feels back on the world that has treated him so cruelly.

Another uni project where we had to design a monster. I imagined these witches chucking all manner of nasty bits and pieces into a cauldron to concoct this beast. The bone dust of a former guardsmen and half a dozen squid corpses perhaps. Once they're born they adopt a large, Grecian face mask that all the octo-beards dangle out of. They're supposed to be summoned up in pairs to protect city gates or something, but they don't take kindly to the awakening process...
