Lovecraft - Venusian Man-Lizard II by KingOvRats Lovecraft - Venusian Man-Lizard II by KingOvRats
He kinda looks like Popeye. XD (the sailor not the pope.)  I find the slit-like eyes and mouth interesting option. Still, this is possibly NOT my final take on the Venusian. However, being the progress from the last one it gets uploaded.


"One of them was fully eight feet tall, with a snout like a tapir’s. The other two were average seven-footers.
(...)
The resemblance to reptiles was perceptible, though I knew it was only an apparent one, since these beings have no point of contact with terrestrial life. When they drew nearer they seemed less truly reptilian—only the flat head and the green, slimy, frog-like skin carrying out the idea. They walked erect on their odd, thick stumps, and their suction-discs made curious noises in the mud. These were average specimens, about seven feet in height, and with four long, ropy pectoral tentacles. The motions of those tentacles—if the theories of Fogg, Ekberg, and Janat are right, which I formerly doubted but am now more ready to believe—indicated that the things were in animated conversation."

An invisible maze.
 I wonder how much Mr.Sterling actually wrote. I know that HPL sometimes went WILD with stories sent to him for revision.

Yet so close to the door he died.

The closing irony in the story. Then his comrades dynamited the maze as a menace, and decided to genocide the entire population of Venus (not really sentient, unwilling to establish friendly relations with earthmen, setting up traps like this , and ignorant of Venus' resourses !)

I wonder what other surprises Venusians have to offer.

Świetny i szczegółowy remake, choć poprzedni pysk bardziej mi się podobał - był bardziej obcy i jak dla mnie szczególnie pasował do istoty wyrażającej emocje ruchami macek na gardle. Tutaj też wygląda nietypowo, ale po dłuższej obserwacji kojarzy mi się trochę ze wściekłym indykiem :P Za to reszta ciała na medal, tak ludzka postawa z naturalnym opancerzeniem w sam raz pasuje do rasy niby dzikusów, a jednak zaskakujących istot rozumnych ;)

Zastanawiam się też jeszcze, dlaczego jaszczuroludziom praktycznie nigdy nie daje się takich łap? Po nich od razu poznać, że pochodzi od jaszczura, i wyglądają bardziej złowieszczo niż pseudo-ludzkie dłonie.

Nooo nie dziwię się, już przerobiłeś większość mitologii Cthulhu i pozostały już chyba same remake'i : \
