Curious devices, forbidden artifacts, mysterious creatures, and intriguing documents.
Great to see you have covered my little C´thulhu just a day after I uploaded it. I have only quite recently started an account at deviantART, and I´ll upload some more stuff which could be interesting for readers of Propnomicon. I made two little C´thulhu idols some time ago, but they were highly stylized.
There's an elephantine vibe to this one that brings the words "Chaugnar Faugn" to mind.
Oh no. What a shame! That looks awesome!
Amazing work Markus!The ridges and folds of the skin are downright amazing.
It´s very nice to see you like my model, especially the skin structure. I tried to give it a more structured skin, as Lovecraft described C´thulhu with scales and compared it with a dragon. So I wanted to find a combination of scale-like elements with softer parts. However, my personal imagination is that C´thulhu would not have "fish-scales" which are stereotypically depicted on many reptiles (actually, most reptiles don´t have such scales at all), but more something comparable to the armoured skin structures of certain starfish for example.At the time when I sculpted it, I just wanted to see how it would turn out at this design, and it was only meant to be some kind of maquette, but I sculpted more and more on it, but it had neither an internal armature nor something to hold it for a further sculpting process. So I wasn´t able to finish it, and anytime I just recycled it. However I´ve now started to recsulpt it, based on the photos I have taken at that time, but now with an armature and also a somewhat bigger body. I´ve already finished around as much as I had on version I, but it will be a little bit bigger. When it comes to elephantine space gods, you have also to remember the amazing creature from Robert E. Howard´s "The Tower of the Elephant" of course.
