Votive of the Deep One

The talented Allan Harwood brings us this work-in-progress shot of his "Votive of the Deep One". It's based on a design from Mike Mignola's "Hellboy" universe.

This is a really nice piece; I most especially like the cleaness of line and the spiral eyes.

Votive offerings in the form of placks go pretty far back into antiquity. There are a number of excellent ancient Greek votive offerings that are surprisingly like Christian votive offerings such as Milagros. The below links might give you some good ideas.
