Dagon at the Monlith

18 Favourites
Sculpture of a scene from H.P. Lovecraft's story 'Dagon' where Dagon rises from the sea and  'With only a slight churning to mark its rise to the surface, the thing slid into view above the dark waters. Vast, Polyphemus-like, and loathsome, it darted like a stupendous monster of nightmares to the monolith, about which it flung its gigantic scaly arms, the while it bowed its hideous head and gave vent to certain measured sounds.'   This scene is often depicted in artwork created about the story and my sculpt doesn't stray much from what is described, but I always wanted to do one, and maybe another sometime.  It's made with super sculpey and painted.  I have copies cast in resin and painted available. If anyone is interested they can contact me at for details.

Thanks. It did come out well, but I'm still tempted to revisit the idea some day.

Nice sculpt, Joe, I like how you've contained the scene within the walls.  The paint scheme is almost psychedelic, what inspired it?

Thanks, Paul. When I did the original the paint was a little more muted. I could not get a good pic of the piece so I played around with the Prisma ap and got sort of 'painting'; but it had interesting color so when I painted my first copy of the sculpt I brightened up the colors a bit. The new photos I took look better.
