Shoggoth by Morgoth883 Shoggoth by Morgoth883
"Ever heard tale of a shaggoth stranger?"
Ive only ever heard this mentioned once in 'the shadow over insmouth' and even then only its name XD Ive seen itin the call of cthulhu game though and it rocks alot. if anyone knows what book its actually featured that would be good :)
also, any suggestions for a backround would be god too because I think it lets the drawing down a bit.

This creature is featured in the mountains by lovecraft. It is possibly related to the elder thing.

The angriest mucus in the world. I love it - you could try it with a warehouse background, perhaps? Like the one at the end of Raiders of the Lost Ark? Or a shipyard?

Hey, some suggestions after so long XD A shipyard could be quite interesting, or even a combination of the two; a warehouse in a sea dock :o

Heh, I thought that Pickman's Modem sounded like a pretty clever pun.

Shaggoth is also briefly mentioned in "The Thing on the Doorstep." Described only with "It changed shape!"

Nice drawing.

:D I like it. Excellent likeness given the vague descriptions you seem to have enountered. The best appearance of a shoggoth is in "At the Mountains of Madness," by H. P. Lovecraft, of course. Now for the shameless plug: Come on over to :devPickmans-Modem: if you'd like to see more mythos art. Ask Becky (our cryptic and eldritch admin) if you can join, I'm sure she'll approve you. :)

A pile of crap...hehehe....the person/thing that made it obviously has a fetish for eyes XD

anyway...I think Triss' idea is good...I was thinking cellar too...OR, or!!! Dungeon! Dungeon has a better ring to it...no?

Dungeon sounds good, but it speaks to much of olde worlde. A cellar ussualy sugests something a little more modern.
