Shoggoth is ... well,
a Lovecraftian thing that needs a hug,
poor guy.
It is truly an image to Pathfinder last year and was looking for something different to upload.
Greetings to all.

Shoggoth, es...
bueno, una cosa lovecraftiana que necesita un abrazo,
porechito! XD.
En verdad es una imagen para Pathfinder del año pasado, y estaba buscando algo diferente para subir.
Saludos a todos!

This is an excellent illustration of a shoggoth.  It carries forward the ideas expressed by Lovercraft in At the Mountains of Madness, which is no mean feat.  It's certainly much better than many other depictions I have seen.  As for hugs... well, I'm thinking that would be one terminal hug.

I love Lovecraft's work. And while digging into some facts about him, I found out that I'm a descendant of his family. I fell in love with At The Mountains of Madness and you have done an awesome interpretation of the Shoggoth in the story! :)

"Shoggoth is ... well,

I'm pretty sure hugging a shoggoth is a top contender for "the worst thing you could possibly do," ranking up there with "spacewalking without a helmet" or "teabagging a pitbull."

Still, great illustration.

One russian fantasy writer used Lovecraft's mythology in his books. He also described a lot of demons of Leng, including shoggoths. Very alike.

Shog: "So then I was all like "AUGHH!!!" and they were like "AUUUUGHHHH!!!!", and then I noticed one of them dropped their wallet and tried to give it back... but all they did was run back to their plane. So cold and lonely out here..."

Blind Penguin: "Wohk!"

Ah yes, Shoggoth...
i remember first seeing it in a game called Call of Cthullu: Dark Corners of the Earth.
apparently looking it in the eyes would make you insane as far as i can remember.
