The Cthulhu Army Grows

I've been doing some experimenting lately with various designs of Cthulhu idols, seeing how different I could make them while still staying true to the pulpy, tentacle-y description.

In addition to the six-eyed Cthulhu I made for my chess set (somewhat of a friendlier, smaller version of Big Squishy Cthulhu) I've been playing with designs based on various cephalopods or other critters. Six-eye Cthulhu is based somewhat on the Portuguese Man-o-war jellyfish.

I also have a Squid-thulhu:

An Ammonite-headed Cthulhu:

And a "classic" squishy octopus-head Cthulhu:

Stay tuned for more Cthulhu madness...

Chronicles of Cthulhu

Greetings, Internet! It's been awhile since I honked at you from the Land of Many Goldfish And Also Cockroaches And Now Some Hermit Crabs.

I have, in fact, been both incredibly busy and without internet (relocated temporarily out to Buttwhiff, Nowhere, with neither cell phone signal or internet) but am now back among the land of the wired, with a growing army of Cthulhus. It has taken entirely longer than it should, but I've now got some painted examples of my Lovecraft minis/chess set.

The first one I painted is basalt and white marble:

And some detail shots:
