A very cool monster. Where did you get the idea from?

Thank you OSTWID,
being a fan of Lovecraft, that’s a model I have been wanting to do for a long time.
The main inspiration comes from the pages of the story, on the internet you can find thousands of different interpretations of Cthulhu, I tried to take the best and avoid the most seen things.
For example, the build I did is very humanoid and the pose more similar to a gargoyle (he should have been sitting, according to the story).
I took inspiration from photos of octopuses and marine animals to imagine the particular transition between head and tentacles, the movement of the folds is thought to recall something radial, almost arachnid, to give a sense of threat and repulsion, while remaining relatively elegant.
Finally I texturized as if it were a living thing and not a simple statue, although I am preparing an alternative version colored in dark green with gold veins.
