‘Votive of the Deep One’

Started a new piece just a few days ago, and so far it’s coming out very well.

I’ve been racking my brain on attempting to figure out more Lovecraft/Cthulhu based pieces, from idols, other tablet artifacts, anything. Sometimes, being your own boss just sucks.
Mike Mignola of Hellboy fame is an inspiration of mine, and I love that his comic style isn’t the usual norm. Each page, heck, each PANEL seems to be a stand alone piece, and he often hides little vignettes of artifacts, statues, and other little treasures, in the background or right in a separate panel.

While browsing http://www.artofmikemignola.com, I came across an image of ‘Abe Sapien’ with a curious little piece right in the middle.

I’ve been looking over my collection of Hellboy titles for inspiration, finding a little, but not enough. So that one just hit me.
So scrounging up supplies, doing my own doodles to decipher his work, I went and started a small piece.

It’s done in Super Sculpey Firm, and is 3 inches long by 2 inches wide. I plan on doing some texturing work next, and hope to have it molded and cast this weekend.

Enjoy!
