Thanks! Just in case people think the Mi-Go has a Bud Lite.

Who needs a face when you're soaring through the solar system!  Nice work!

Thanks, Paul. I took every mention of the critters from the story and that's what I got. HPL says 'antenna', but later says 'feelers'. Most of the time the Mi-Go get wasp like bodies, but from what I can see HPL maintains that they are 'crab-like' so I went with the wider body shape. For a sculpt that I could reproduce that made it a bit easier.

Now that you mention it, this is a lot more crab-like than most depictions.  I guess the sleeker 'wasp' bodies seem more aerodynamic and suited for flying, but I like the wide-body look.  What inspired the color?  I was once commissioned to paint a red Cthulhu statue and canvas painting, it made for a nice change.
