======================================

Here's my Dhole for ArtOrder's Lovecraft Creature Lab.

Had a lot of fun with this one also check out everyone else's work!

"Below him the ground was festering with gigantic Dholes, and even as he looked, one reared up several hundred feet and leveled a bleached, viscous end at him."
—H. P. Lovecraft and E. Hoffmann Price, "Through the Gates of the Silver Key".

Dholes are huge, slimy worm-like creatures, at least several hundred feet long. Because they avoid daylight and are covered in viscous goo, their features are nearly impossible to discern. Similar creatures called bholes exist in the Vale of Pnath in the Dreamlands.

Check out and follow my blog there's a cool update: [link]

The creature is very creative.  Great composition.  The little guy crouching down says it all.

I like this. I've always imaged dholes as oversized worms, but this creature suggests biology that didn't have the planet Earth in mind. Well done!

One of the nicest, if not the one, depictions of a dhole I've seen in the net. And, as you say, nobody has seen one of those so... yours cuold be the REAL one. Congratulations

Wow thats a scary looking beast. I'm finding it amusing that it has the same name as a species of canine though.
