    ROUND #224 VOTING

    Topic: the cultists demon whisperer


    Deadline for the voting: August 17th


    Requirements for this week...

    - this familiar can be any size, but can only be seen by the cult leader. (You're not required to include the leader in your image, but you can include him or her as long as the focus is still on the familiar)

    - this familiar is not a militant physical creature. Its function is to get the cult leader to do its bidding. So stay away from too much biological weaponry.

    - as an extra requirement this week, and to keep with lovecraft theme, Your familiar must include tentacles somewhere in its design.

    Concept: Fat Fairy
    The 'Fat Fairy' is a little demonic familiar that loves to drive the inexperienced worshippers of the dark crazy. Especially when it gets its hairy antennas into the ears of a leader.

    Whispering Demon

    Once you hear its whisper's it is already too late. The whispering demon corrupts pure souls to the occult giving them power and hate in equal amounts. It lives parasitically off its host, sucking their life from them and growing more powerful from their agony.

    Concept: Urill'ullu'gullutholoth
    An inversion of space/time or a quantum error; Urill'ullu'gullutholoth is an aspect- a humanly comprehesible sliver - of the old-gods/deamons. Perverted and misaligned, malevolent and insidious, its goal the same as all gods and deamons - control over and subjugation of all life.

    The word ‘anarchy’ comes from the ancient Greek αναρχία in which αν meant ‘without’ and αρχία meant first a military ‘leader’ and then ‘ruler’. Anarchist society is one ‘without rulers’: a classless, non-hierarchical society.

    Xantis is a pretty small, smart and vicious kind of familiars. They lives amongst the casual humans searching for a person full of hunger for power, and control. After founding such a person familiar is making a noise with the ring attached to hes front tentacle, just close to the victim ear. After hearing such a noise, the "chosen one" can see, and hear Xantis vicious whispers, what usually helps him to get a cult leader position really fast. Usually because of they greedy nature, cult leaders are happy of having a Xantis as a companion. Even if these kind of familiars are persuading hes listeners for making sacrifices from humans very often...

    "Humans, humans, humans... Bwahaha! So foolish and simple, so barbaric and naive, yet so prideful.
    All you need to do is make them think that they know what they're doing. Make them feel like they're the ones in control.
    Make them think all those ideas are theirs. But... they are not..." - demon's wishpers

    Concept: La'araggo'gor'r'og'o'ylya'y (aka Larry)


    Only the Head Priest of the Cult of La'aragg...er..the Cult of Larry is permitted entry into the inner chamber of the Temple. Some of the more curious members of the Cult have tried listening through the closed doors of the chamber, but all they ever hear is the Head Priest arguing with himself over how many more human sacrifices must be made for "appeasement", whatever that means.

    Concept: Algamell

    Sebastian always had a fascination with demons and the dark arts since an early age. When he turned 14 him and 2 other friends thought it would be a good idea to try a dark portal ritual into the nether realm, sadly for them, it worked resulting in a Algamell demon travelling through the rift and bonding with Sebastians soul for all eternity. The Algamell acts as a parasite by using the hosts soul to influence the person to do its bidding. It constantly feeds on the hosts soul, and only by consuming the souls of others will it refrain from consuming its hosts. Sebastian started by sacrificing his two friends to the demon, after this he went for the homeless. Later with the demons influence he started a cult which helped him collect victims. Its not all bad for Sebastian though, despite having an Algamell constantly feeding on his soul he is granted great wisdom by the demon and also the ability to conduct great dark magics and rituals, all of which help him keep his cult in order.

    Concept: octobird
    Being totally blind and unable to fly due to having tentacles for feathers, the octobird demon relies entirely on it's ability to persuade others into bringing it human sacrifices.

    Concept: Cthulhu lupus familiaris

    Cthulhu lupus familiaris has many forms, but after sensing an impressionable mind it will take the familiar form of a dog. This creature pretty much has the same dog like characteristics... except for it's unsettling tentacles where the mouth should be, the burning tail, and the un-canine like feet. The viewer does not notice that when he glances at his friend, it will wag his tail- Dogs after all look out for human interests don't they?...

    Concept: Summoned Whisperer

    The Master isn´t the same person since he summoned the new familiar. Sometimes, he stays in silent and then all of us can hear a whistling whisper. He moves the lips with an absent look in his eyes, like someone is spoking in his behalf. Every night runs a rumor on the adept cells : The Master is no longer the Master; The Demon is now the head of the Cult.

    Speech Thrall

    Artist: DmnSpawn
    Concept: Speech Thrall

    The Speech Thrall is summoned from a ritual under the cover of night, as a glowing figure erupts from the portal between worlds a thrall exits the portal where it's lord may not. It then rips out the tongue of the lead initiate that was the center of the ritual and births a thrall unto the bloody stub.
    The tentacles work there way into the blood vessels and muscles tissue embedding itself where the tongue used to be. As it feeds off the blood of the host it starts to resemble a real tongue in color and texture but those whom get too close can see the horrid truth. The creature can now speak Directly for it's dark lord and accomplish his torturous goals at an alarming rate. The host is given unnaturally long life due to the symbiosis however if either are killed both will die.

    Concept: Twin Arbitrator


    The Twin Arbitrator is summoned via its masters accursed mirror (passed down generation by generation, its age and origins ultimately indeterminate,) the ritual consisting of staring into ones own eyes and whispering "Biggie Smalls" three times. Once summoned and questioned by its master, the Twin Arbitrator calls upon the combined knowledge, wisdom and foresight of the attached skulls, which are believed to have belonged to two men (one virtuous, the other sinful) damned to eternal servitude of another, darker power. Over the millennia of their existence and exploitation to the benefit of whichever cult possesses the summoning mirror, the skulls have twisted into the form of something resembling a sabbatic goat as further punishment for their deeds in the afterlife, serving cults that have gone awry from the previously said darker power initial intentions. And I have absolutely no idea where this is going so I'm just going to stop writing now.

    Concept: Sufletul mâncător (Soul Eater)

    Sufletul mâncător, banished for hell to die here on Earth was discovered by a Romanian traveller, Boian. Boian devoted himself to the beast and began do it's bidding. The Sufletul mâncător survives by feeding on flesh and soul. Once strong enough, he will go back to Hell to overthrow Satan, earning his entry back into the underworld.

    Concept: Cthulito Lindo
    The creature is neither benign nor is it altogether vile.
    Its wide eyed gaze and bloated frame appears innocuous and you are beguiled to listen carefully.
    Do you hear it speak softly, though imperatively, of the inconceivable horrors?!

    Nicodemus Bat Demon

    The war between the Light and Dark Lords has waged for centuries. With the rise of Christianity into the popular masses, the Puritans did a lot of burning of witches and wizards.

    This didn't sit well with the Dark Lord. He has devised a new strategy: empower the constant companion of devil worshipers with the True power of darkness! The Bats.

    Why? Well because the witch hunters don't pay any mind to the little black flying mice hovering around the incantations. It doesn't matter if the worshipers of the Dark Lord are burned at the stake, those are expendable. We Bats are the true masterminds.

    With our goggles enhancing our vision, and our reconnaissance equipment, we are able to research the finest magic, and gather our favorite snack...mo'effin berry juice!

    Re-designed added!

    yThis creature disguises itself as a tree to most people, only those under its control can see its true form... it mind controls the cult leader, and requires a daily ritual/feeding of blood...it was once a small creature no bigger than a dog...

    lawvalamp, you are being disqualified since your creature doesn't adhere to the rules. I hope you'll participate in future rounds, though, since the quality of your work is certainly not lacking.

    quick now before I have to get my train


    I voted for vovosunt and lawnmower

    vovosunts design might be a bit generic but it tells some kind of story about the familiar which is actually pretty nice
    (also I looked at your sketchbook and can't believe how young you are... kinda jealous, keep the work up!)

    lawnmowers piece is strong as it also transport some kind of concept about the familiar although I can't get rid of the feeling of seeing a demon broodlord rather than a invisible familar


    and then I have to say that I have a really big problem with edwards piece in this round
    his rendering and usage of colors sure is impressive and his skill sure is superior to most of the other contributors (including me)
    but seriously, that is a humanoid and therefore against the rules, I think it would be kinda unfair to vote for him for just being good at using colors and rendering while ignoring the rules that were set up for cow and this weeks topic

    verehin changed some parts of his creature after the critique from the wip thread and I would have voted for him but it still has too much human features in it for me (this is just a personal taste and Im almost feeling bad because I really admire his work but couldn't vote for him in the orc chow and in this cow)

    same goes for sealegs this round
    I just don't feel that "demonic whisperer"
