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.

Nie mam pojęcia. Miałem kraba i to strasznie nieporadne stworzenie zupełnie nie kojarzyło mi się z nimi.:D Pozatym, już z bardziej technicznych względów - jakby stanął na tylnych odnóżach tylko, w dodatku trzymając coś w przednich, przydały mu sie jakiś ogonek, by utrzymał rwónowagę.:)

dla mnie Mi-Go kojarzyły się co najwyżej z homarami lub krewetkami. Argumenty antykrabowe:

- Tuż przed opisem Mi-Go Lovecraft napisał, że ,,zwłoki te nie były ludzkie, lecz podobne rozmiarem i ogólnym zarysem"

- Krab chodzący na ostatniej parze nóg głupio by wyglądał

- Krab byłby - jak na 1,5 metra długości - zbyt szeroki, aby przebrać się za człowieka(tu trzeba właśnie podłużnego, smukłego ciała)

Czy ja wiem? Są też gatunki krabów o mniej szerokim ciele. [link] Rozważałem zastosowanie włąsnie takiego modelu jako podstawy mojego Mi GO ale ostatecznie wyszło jak wyszło. Krab chodzący na wszystkich parach nó potrafi głupio wyglądać :lol:
a co do sotatniego to tu mam najwięcej zastrzeżeń, bo on niezupełnie przebrał się za człowieka... Siedział nieruchomo w fotelu poowijany kocami czy cyzmś tam i ruszał tylko ustami i dłońmi. Pozatym Mi-Go mogli sędowolnie chirurgicznie przerabiać. Jeśli ich krewni zrobili z siebie Yetich to....:D

Bardzo dokładna ilustracja, świetnie wygląda! A najstraszniejsze jest to, że właściwie nie ma w nich nic magicznego. Dziwna rasa owadokrabów z Plutona, opierająca się na zaawansowanej technologii i medycynie. Niezwykłe, straszne i prawie logiczne.

I doubt it... Wouldn't they wear them during assault on akeley? one of Mi Go was killed by a dog. their human allies used guns, but Mi Go didn't seem to carry any weaponry or armor. whatever they mined with doesn't seem to be useful in combat.

Which is kind of inconsistent as Mi Go don't want to wage war on humans as it woudl be impractical and they have tu use mor resuores... but they easily defeated Old Ones who were much more advanced race.;)

The Mi-Go are implied to want to enslave the human race, actually. But yes, full on war would be impractical cause the Mi-Go would beat us in two seconds and use more resources than needed.

Was it ever said they want to enslave humanity?

Well i think they would have to inveest realy A LOT of resuorces to defeat us very fast. Otherwise they would probably have met with higher resistance then they coud expect.. I mean damn, they had so much problems with one old man and his dogs, when having advantage in numbers, haha.. That doesn't make them seem like superhuman commando:D

I was just kidding about Iron Man. ;P I honestly can't imagine what their machines or weapons would look like - maybe they only rely on handheld gadgets for the more delicate operations (like cutting a human's brain out) and prefer to use bigger, less mobile machines for combat (maybe death beams?) and mining (something that allows them to extract the materials out of the rock without making a big and noticeable mess?).

As they are travelling trhrough space on their own wings they have to carry everything on them, perhaps in form of backpacks and then assemble everything on place.

Akeley mentions that surgery is "everyday thing" for them so I suppose that they might modify their own bodies for various purposes. I have somewhere a sketch of migo trooper with frront pair of limbs fused together and forming a gun-like appendage.;)
