Acrylics and molding paste on illustration board.
I had, since discovering his writing, wanted to do a Lovecraftian piece with a nameless thing coming out of the darkness at a man too curious about those Great Old Ones from beyond the known universe. The tentacles, of course, were to give the thing a further Lovecraftian feel. The character, actually, was created for a few projects I had thought about (including a comic and a small 2D computer game I was creating some months ago, but have since put on an indefinite hold).
Unfortunately, when I originally scanned the piece in (on a roller, which I'll never use again as it damaged the 3D elements) it got stuck and a bit of the right side of the piece was cut off (the torch is not cropped so in the original). I've since, however, corrected the mistake and updated the piece here. As for the molding paste, it didn't do much for this particular piece (though I plan still to use it often), but I was just beginning to use the stuff, and I am still experimenting with all that I can do with it. I hope you like the piece.
