Happy Cthulhu Shrine by ursulav Happy Cthulhu Shrine by ursulav
Happy Cthulhu's wee little house at R'lyeh is finally done, and my apologies for the image quality--my scanner hates blues. (Why, god, why?) So the rich turquoise and the deep blue violet don't come out terribly well, and the fish is bleached, but...ah, well.

Yes, that is the Elder Sign, as near as I can render it. (Possibly there should be more flames, but space was limited.) Cthulhu seems untroubled by being sealed in with his dead pet fishies.

Anyway, as promised, the shrine is on E-bay at [link]

A high quality scan of the Happy Cthulhu art is at [link] which is a much better way to check out the art in question!

I had thought that this guy looked familiar. It wasn't until I read the comments I realized he is the same god from the movie Dagon (which I just saw very recently) You made him look so cute! <3

Simple: Your scanner was merely attempting to properly render the mind-ripping and brain-melting power that is Cthulu's Shrine and failed miserably. It is, after all, merely a machine.

I think I like this one the best.. it seems to have more coherent layout.. if that makes any sense. not that your others aren't great.. maybe I key into those colours better? I dunno. anyway, adorable. ^_^

My only problem: You're using the Elder Sign created by August Derleth (both and blessing and a curse on HPL's Legacy, I'm afraid). Lovecraft's Elder Sign, can be found here: [link]

The symbol looks a bit odd...maybe you should do something more aquatic...
Uh. I'd have liked a rusty submarine thing. This is cool, though. I think Cthulu likes his little grotto.

I admit, the eye/star symbol has panache, although I prefer Lovecraft's own treebranch-ish symbol.

The little "Ia"s in the corners made me giggle once I noticed them. This must have been a bunch of fun to make, it's so cheerful and funny.

I love seeing Elder Gods going the way of the Cute.

I can relate with scanner issues. Sometimes, my scanner can't get all the colors when I do a picture in colored pencils!

Blue is known to be difficult to photograph or scan. That's why animation pencils are blue, so when you do the finished drawing over the blue sketch and film it, the sketch won't show up!

But I love these little shrines! I can so see them in a Mexican Restaurant somewhere ^_^
