Art: Too Much of A Good Thing

This image is a combination of factors. I was talking to a friend and told them "There are three ways into my heart: Cthulhu, Anubis and bats. And if you combine them, then well!"

"Oh no," said they, "We've created something!"

"Don't worry, everyone who spends time with me eventually ends up creating something with me." I thought about it, it was true.

So I sketched it.

Some time between sketching and inking, I read a blog post by Sam Kieth. And I think seeing such a deconstruction of his work somehow wormed its way into my subconscious (As Mr. Kieth's works nearly always do...)

Last night I inked Anuthulhu as I've taken to calling this amalgam, in GIMP, and then coloured it in Photoshop.

And I just. Couldn't. Stop.

I ended up with 5 different renditions of Anuthulhu.

Here they are, more or less in order from original idea to off-the-rails-Q. Which do you like?
