Either way it looks amazing.
and those based off it are often to lean and "modern".
the description says he's a pudgy 'little' thing... and that the tentacles are more cilia than cephalapoid tentacles....
Too bad Lovecraft never took an art class...it would be very interesting to see what he imagined....
'Flabby Claws', 'bloated corpulence', gelatinous green immensity'.
it was so depressing, he ate yet another ice cream freighter ...again....
If there is any copies of it left, I want to get one!
I am so happy that you did this, and that you did it so well. reading the comments I see you can get one, I would love to have a real cthulhu sculpture just like lovecraft drew, are they still available? I love that you did this.
This thing is way more impressive in person than any
photo could ever capture! I am more than pleased...
Namely, that an unearthly Creature, by definition, should have no similarity to anything of the Earth.
Also, that an Object of Horror should look as Horrible as possible to Human Instinct - such that if it was Half-seen in the Dark corner of a room by an unprepared Soul it should cause Mind-damaging Shock.
