Small animated gif of the process here: ening.html

I tried to portray Cthulhu not as a creature, but as the vessel of some awesome cosmic entity.

I tried to capture the Dunsanian mystic atmosphere of "Dreamquest of Unknown Kadath" mixed with the objective view of "At The Mountains of Madness."

" ...a gigantic thing "miles high" which walked or lumbered about."

It can´t be merely a creature of flesh and bone, but Something alien that extends to more than one reality, and which draws its power from some distant cosmic source.
Like what a 2-dimensional creature living in a 2-dimensional world would see if we sticked our 3-dimensional finger into their world.

" ...the mountainous monstrosity flopped down the slimy stones and hesitated, floundering at the edge of the water."
" ...great Cthulhu slid greasily into the water and began to pursue with vast wave-raising strokes of cosmic potency."

It seems like a gigantic mass gliding about, like an overgrown Shoggoth.

I prefer this cosmic horror better than the hairless King Kong with the octupus head.

The usual isolated mansion with the eccentric old man that worships forgotten gods.

Amazing. The color, the background, it really made me feel like I was sitting there watching them come onto the shore without an inch of hope.

Thank you for this.
