Cthulhu fhtagn no more II by Samize Cthulhu fhtagn no more II by Samize
This is an alternate version for this one:
[link]



I tried to portray Cthulhu not as a creature, but as the vessel of some awesome cosmic entity.


I tried to capture the Dunsanian mystic atmosphere of "Dreamquest of Unknown Kadath" mixed with the objective view of "At The Mountains of Madness."


" ...a gigantic thing "miles high" which walked or lumbered about."

It canīt be merely a creature of flesh and bone, but Something alien that extends to more than one reality, and which draws its power from some distant cosmic source.
Like what a 2-dimensional creature living in a 2-dimensional world would see if we sticked our 3-dimensional finger into their world.


" ...the mountainous monstrosity flopped down the slimy stones and hesitated, floundering at the edge of the water."
" ...great Cthulhu slid greasily into the water and began to pursue with vast wave-raising strokes of cosmic potency."

It seems like a gigantic mass gliding about, like an overgrown Shoggoth.


I prefer this cosmic horror better than the hairless King Kong with the octupus head.

Imagine going down to the beach for a stroll and seeing this, ha.
Amazing pic, it's like an eldritch version of the normandy beach invasion
It does feel like a deployment of forces and an apocalyptic heralding

Yes, Cosmic Horror is the only description for this nighmare, superbly done towering in the background over the normal-sized deep ones, (which are themselves scary enough).
