H.P.Lovecraft és a követői által létrehozott pantheon egyik tagja a képen megjelenő lény. Először a Suttogás a sötétben című novellában tesz róla említést Lovecraft, majd  Clark Ashton Smith  több novellájában is felhasználja alakját. 

"He was very squat and pot-bellied, his head was more like a monstrous toad than a deity, and his whole body was covered with an imitation of short fur, giving somehow a vague sensation of both the bat 
and the sloth. His sleepy lids were half-lowered over his globular eyes; and the tip of a queer tongue issued from his fat mouth." - Clark Ashton Smith  "The Tale of Satampra Zeiros"

Morghi, high priest of Thoundeh, the Elk-goddess, could only say "U G H !" at an image of this uncouth one. He hated his rival, Eibon, with a passion and devised most unChristian tortures to work on Eibon once he was in his clutches.

Tsathoggua, grateful to Eibon for all his services, gave Eibon a gift and insttructions on how to use such. It was through said gift that Morghi wound up having to reconcile with Eibon and work with him.

Once Eibon and Morghi were no more on the scene, the former's work came to fruition. Tsathoggua enjoyed an unprecedented revival of his worship -for a century.

Then the Northern Ice Desert whelmed Hyperborea...

A nice joilly chap IF you observe the proper procedures. 
Eibon served him well, and Tsathoggua was so grateful he gave Eibon a gift and instructions on using it, See THE DOOR TO SATURN.

Hát ez cukiságban odaver az Azilumos Nyarlathotepednek, de poént félretéve tök jó hogy inkább hibrid kreatúra mint gonosz mítoszlény fazonja lett-azokkal már úgyis tele a padlás.

Köszi! :D 
De tényleg, mint ahogy lentebb is írtam nem az volt a cél, hogy egy "verikrípi" jelenetet alkossak meg, hanem csak lerajzolok egy lényt a rövidke leírásra, no meg a fantáziámra támaszkodva. És ennyi... 
Ha már szóba hoztad az Azilumot, láttam neked is sikerült bekerülni a legutóbbi számba, Gratula! :thumbsup: :D

Nice depiction of Tsathoggua. Maybe too "real", looks almost like a plausible alien species, but very nice.

Thanks! Maybe too realistic, but I didn't want to draw a blurry, dark mood picture, just an anatomically correct, hybrid creature.

It's a proper way to approach the subject too, far from more... "mystical" views. Good job.
