Lovecraft - Mi Go by KingOvRats Lovecraft - Mi Go by KingOvRats
The fungoid denizens of Pluto. The wings are sort of small, as they wreen't suupposed to be very effective in earth's atmosphere. I really like how it tuned out.:)

"They were pinkish things about five feet long; with crustaceous bodies bearing vast pairs of dorsal fins or membraneous wings and several sets of articulated limbs, and with a sort of convoluted ellipsoid, covered with multitudes of very short antennae, where a head would ordinarily be.... As it was, nearly all the rumours had several points in common; averring that the creatures were a sort of huge, light-red crab with many pairs of legs and with two great bat-like wings in the middle of their back..."

H.P. Lovecraft, The Whisperer In Darkness

Best detailed Lovecraft monster I've ever seen drawn. 

Nature really kept its eyes closed when designing that thing.

Thank you. This means a lot.:)

I guess they are quite adapted to their supposed environment. They look like crustaceans (And Yuggoth was mentioned to have underwater cities) and they have no eyes, as it's so far from the sun they'd be useless.:)

This is so awesome. The simple elegance of the black and white drawings only enhances the faithful imagery and make these beings seem terrifyingly possible. Absolutely fantastic.

widzę że polubiłeś te Belzebuby - jak nie mucha, to komar :D

Pragnę jednak zauważyć, że w opisie elipsoida była zwinięta(stąd porównanie do mózgu), no ale z tą "szyszką" wygląda rzeczywiście obco - już słyszę to potworne brzęczenie "Iä! Shub-Niggurath!".

Może nie do końca zgodne z opisem, ale taka głowa jest najbardziej kluczowym elementem ich wyglądu w mojej wizji. Zawsze sobie wyobrażam fale drgań przebiegające po tych czułkach gdy coś "bzyczą" :)

jedno nie zaprzecza drugiemu; jednakże jak dotąd nie widziałem na stronie w pełni poprawnej wizji łebka, a twoja wizja wypada - jak dla mnie - najlepiej.

Zastanawia mnie tylko ta moda na ogony Mi-Go, bo gdzie okiem sięgnąć, same ogoniaste sztuki - czy to na tej stronie, czy to na Wikipedii, po prostu wszędzie. Zapewne bierze się to od ogólnego porównania do skorupiaków(nie tylko krabów), a większość tych zwierząt ma ogony.
