Spike Valance Cthulhu Mythos - Yog-Sothoth, The Key and the Gate, Opener of the Way (Outer God)

As Cthulhu is the most powerful of Great Old Ones, Yog-Sothoth is the chieftain of the Outer Gods, along with Shub-Niggurath and Nyarlathotep. It is the deity of tyrant time and ruler of the space-time continuum, often manifesting as a conglomeration of glowing spheres (with some tentacles within too). Sometimes it is regarded as Umr'At-Tawil and its benevolte counterpart is Lumley's Yad-Thaddag.

Yog-Sothoth mated with Shub-Niggurath to spawn the hideous twins Nug & Yeb, which in turn spawned the mighty Cthulhu. It's just Cthulhu's grandpa *lol*

Yog-Sothoth's name was mentioned for the first time in Howard Ph. Lovecraft's "The Case of Charles Dexter Ward" (1927) and it's one of the most rated Cthulhu Mythos entities...

They should really make a new Billy-and-Mandy kinda cartoon and fill it with creatures like this. But the way commercial television works lately I wouldn't put much faith in it. Anyhow, love what you did here.

Very nice Yog-Sothoth. He's one of my favorites; there are several attempts at depicting him in my own gallery.

Your Lovecraft and Cthulhu Mythos art is very, very nice, blends horror and a tip of humour too. I like it! :lol:

Why should I behold Him when I'm shaped in Eternity? :fuzzydemon:

Hey, very nice, thank you! :) The eyes are an interesting touch, as it suggests intelligence- something hard to convey with just bubbles and tentacles.

Man, you and I? They see our work but may not believe it. I DO believe it though. I really dig your Lovecraft tributes. I try to do that on my tablet lately. I am getting Lovecraft anime style.

Be cool, dude!
