Shub-Niggurath by SanityCleaver Shub-Niggurath by SanityCleaver
This is my interpretation of Shub-Niggurath, the vile and corrupt fertility goddess from the works of H. P. Lovecraft.

I envisioned her as a mass of roiling animal parts- descending from the sky towards one of her cultists who has summoned her in some remote part of the world. She seeks not to devour or acquiese him, but to breed.

This was actually the first proper painting i ever did in Photoshop, which i haven't really gotten around fixing up until now.
If you find it in any way disturbing- good. That's exactly what its meant to be.

That guy is doomed (and messed up in the head). Then again, he probably is insane
