I based the sculpt on Lovecraft's short story 'The Call of Cthulhu.' In it Lovecraft describes a statue found by Inspector Legrasse who had taken it from a dangerous cult. The original was sculpted from Super Sculpey then molded in silicone and cast in resin. Primed with a light grey primer and then sprayed flat black. Next I dry-brushed a combination of Forest Green, black, and Hunter Green, what I call Cthulhu Green, onto the figure. Then I added a protective coating of DullCote and that ended the process.
