I scribbled at this for days, and still didn't really like the way it turned out. sigh.

Something that I probably won't bother using, but it was sort of inspired by a running freestyle RP I've been involved in.

Ow, okay, the guy just transformed into a hideous yellow tentacle...thing.
What do we do? Err, huh...RUN! RUN LIKE HELL!!

Is it Carcosa behind him, in the dark?
Very nice artwork :)

I hope you revere this artwork, it is the closest any mortal has come to seeing the Great Dagon.

Oh... Dagon and Hastur aren't actually the same creepy extraterrestrial evil... they're close, though. Stupid Great Old Ones.

Creepy ^_^! I love the movement here too - the flow is so cool, and the colours are organic and slightly sickening :D Absolutely Awesome!

I had a lot of fun running different colour tints over this to see how it would look.

Oh, wow... I love dark, creepy pictures like this, and I'd love to hear the story behind it. Excellent job; I love how the flesh actuators look!

It sort of comes out of an ongoing roleplay involving, (among things) Doctor Octopus and the King in Yellow.

*is a huge dweeb*

Oh, wow!

That's awesome! It's like what Ock would be like if he was all organic.

I think you did a beautiful job with this. I'm especially digging the background.

It's too bad that you don't like the way it turned out, because I think it looks great!! I love the colouring and the 'hand' thing and tenticlies are very well done imo. I give it 15 snoots and 2 tea biscuits.

Wow, that's creepy and awesome at the same time. Love those actuator claws. Eesh.

...is this what he looks like now, or just a conceptual piece?

He's not slated to undergo any drastic change at any point in the future, but I'd probably go with something less crazy if I did opt to have him go mutation on us. I don't want the little bugger to stray /too/ far from canon, after all.

...Dude, that's what I pictured the Actuators looking like if they were possessed by the Soul Edge.
