Description

Here is another double page chapter illustration for the upcoming 7th Edition of Chaosium's Call of Cthulhu RGP core rules.   The left half is mostly blank because that's where the text will be overlaid.  Everyone loves a shoggoth, right??  If you're not familiar, they are a product of horror writer H.P. Lovecraft's imagination, they fist appeared in his novel 'At The Mountains of Madness', currently in limbo for a major motion picture and well worth the read.   Astute examiners might be able to figure out roughly where and when this takes place.  As is my tradition to make puzzles for myself within my paintings, I focused on the transparent qualities of the amoebic creature.

Acrylic on paper, roughly 12x18"

ive always seen the shoggoth depicted as an amorphous blob with multiple eyes.
