    I am working on the spike tips and the house fronts.
    420 views and only 3 people have anything to say?!?!?
    ambivalent bunch aren't you? I promise I don't get mad or flame. I honestly want input.

    Great work, I love how he is looking down upon the village, gives a good sense of scale.

    No critiques as such, i love ur take on the character, I would not have his neck as long as it is but to be honest thats just personal preference.

    Will you post the painted pics?

    OOOOOOOOH - nice little town getting stomped, chomped - or whatever!
    Nice crisp wings - good texture on the skin and tentacles.
    If anything - I would suggest making the wings a bit more tattered - after all, Cthulhu has used those things for eaons - but that is a question of taste.
    - Just the thing you would buy as a souvenir, when visiting a sleepy little town by the sea, in southern England ;-) Love it!

    I like it a lot! It is well carried out and it looks interesting from all angles. Good work!
    My only - small - complain is, that it looks like his hind legs and wings are poorly integrated into his body. They look attached rather than being a part of his body. Also the texture on his back seems a little less finished than the rest (but maybe it is supposed to?).

    Very unique and creative. I do agree with the need for a shorter neck and tattered wings, though.

    The crab legs, batlike wings, octopus tenacles, and insectlike head, all coming together in one beast reminds me of a mythical creature, such as the gryphon.

    cool concept. that town sure is in a heap of trouble.
    the only thing I would change is the blending of the wings and legs into the back. they look stuck on.
    but I still really like it

    The wings and look "stuck on" because I am planning to cast it if enough people like it. Then the kit builder would seam the kit to tie them in.
    The legs look that way because the have a carapace on the top edge of them. If it was blended in, he couldn't move them.

    Must've missed this (I disappeared from here for some months) but this is a really great rendition of Cthulhu, I like the insectoid direction you took it, and the multiple eyeballs are just creepy.
