The first run was great! This time around I went into a lot more detail and texture experimentation.
The main body portion has been treated with an emulsion technique to add a great organic heavy texture over all.
This technique allows for some great depth and highlighting/drybrush fun when I got to the painting stage.
The tentacles are all fully posable so Cthulhu can grasp one or a few victims while he picks the best one to eat first.
There is a very organic feel to the tentacles as well as some great pearl mixed in with the colors so they stand out from the rest of the colors.. just enough.
The wings... yes I started with a Mighty Mugg cape, cut it, then layered it with a very textured thin rubber skin.
He has been painted with varying techniques and great care has been taken to get the most out of all the textures.
During the painting process and afterwards he has been sealed to protect against wear and keep the paint looking good.
After all was said and done I used some semi gloss varnish to accentuate the eyes.
