A tribute to Howard Philip Lovecraft (that I always found fascinating, even though I was never was fond of his style), here is the WIP of an Elder Thing, featuring in his novel titled The Dreams in the Witch-House.
Update: some 4 years later, I found back a blend file that survived. Nothing fancy, not even finished, but I'm pleased to attach it to this blog post. It is under Blender Artistic Licence, and I hope that you may come up with interesting things thanks to this model! ;-)
