Hound of Tindalos 2

Inspired by the work of H.P. Lovecraft.

"They are lean and athirst!" he shrieked... "All the evil in the universe was concentrated in their lean, hungry bodies. Or had they bodies? I saw them only for a moment, I cannot be certain."
—Frank Belknap Long, "The Hounds of Tindalos"

One of my favorite hound iterations.

Excellent piece, you made something that wasn't meant to be judged as anything else but evil, not cool, not friendly, not kind, but an undead, human-eating predator made of the stuff of nightmares, good show :)

This is, honestly, my favorite depiction of the hounds of Tindalos. It's probably far too literal on the "hound" part for what Long intended, but all the attempts to make them utterly alien just wind up looking ridiculous.

Outstanding concept and execution. I like how its shape is quite deceptive - reflects the quote from H.P.L.

This is a very nice interpretation! I love the color choices and sheer otherworldly-ness of it.

I'm glad you like it.

A very good Interpretation. Only the claws are a bit too long. Sure they look like they could do serious damage, but they make the paws looks so big and thereby let the dog appear a bit slow and plump.
I Thing shorter ones would have been better.
