This is the first drawing out of thousands I've seen that captures the grotesquerie of rotting sea life that Lovecraft described. Well done!!!

The rest was very good as well, I should have commented about that also. But I was very impressed with how you formed the hands.

For some reason I'm reminded of Joseph Merrick (the elephant man)

I'm not sure, and I mean that way in the nicest way I can, this picture is wonderfull, just the shape of his head reminds me of Merrik.

just looked up some pictures. feeaky!
i think it's great that you see that connection. such is the horror of cthulhu. ;)

Indeed
why thank you, I'm a big fan of Merrik, though saddly I havn't read too mutch Lovecraft...I really need to though. I love Yog Sothoth...yet I've only read of him, and not the stories involving him. I think you may find this video amussing. [link]

yog sothoth is literally the most ambiguous... thing? it is by definition indescribable. it would scar your brain upon sight. read 'at the mountains of madness'. i believe it to be one of lovecraft's best involving yog sothoth.
