The Making of Nigel

A Lovecraftian Adaption - Brad King
Adaption Idea
The concept that I thought of was
to adapt the lore and history of
the Cthulhu Mythos authored by
H.P. Lovecraft, but adapt the
setting into a more modern time,
around the idea of a school in
the 80’s in Innsmouth.
A Character Design
So my idea for this project
was to design a character
that could exist in the
universe, originally I had
three character concepts,
but I eventually decided on
developing Nigel.
Who’s Nigel?
The FIsh Man
Nigel was the name I gave to
my Fishman design, Fishmen
being an iconic part of the
Innsmouth lore. The name I
decided to give him was
Nigel, due to its australian
slang meaning for a loner,
or weirdo.

The reason I chose to make
Nigel was because I found
his design most interesting.
