Here is my finished Piece for the Great Old Ones. My goal was to have the Great Old Ones emerging from a wall of flesh. There is, Cthulhu, Shub Niggurath, Azathoth, Nyarlathotep, Yog Sothoth, Ithaqua, and Hastur.

As a lovecraftian lover this is fucking epic

I love this tremendously. I'm a big fan of Lovecraftian creatures. I don't understand having Ithaqua in here however. The others make so much sense to me but Ithaqua just seems so.. random? What's your reasoning for it being included out of curiosity?

I think this interpretation is something H.P. Lovecraft and his circle would be flattered by.  I wasn't looking this up but I'm glad it showed in my search.

*winces and gags* Ugh! That's disgusting! That's Rancid! What is that? An aquatic flesh demon? *whispers* Is that nightmare? Is that true nightmare?

I needed an idea for the front of a PickUp Dummy for my latest Guitar project and I stumbled upon your art.
Truly amazing!
I hope you don't mind, its only for my personal guitar, non commercial.
It was laser engraved onto hardwood using three seperate runs with different thresholds to achieve a 3D-effect.

Likely Yes but - Are you familiar with H. R. Geiger? This is very reminiscent of his slimey bubble flesh style. He did a few album covers here: www.triptykon.net/triptykon/Re…

Great detailing of the rough skin and slimy look to the monster faces.

oh awesome, thankyou
i could recognize the great Cthulhu instantly, but the others were alot harder to make out (although it was more to the fact that I didn't actually know what any of them looked like)
either way, it's an impressive amalgamation of unspeakable, horrific evil, 10 point to you, sir :)

Epic is the only word I can describe this with. A perfectly creepy design that makes me hope we never see these things for real.
