Deep One 2 by dloliver Deep One 2 by dloliver
I think their predominant color was a greyish-green, though they had white bellies. They were mostly shiny and slippery, but the ridges of their backs were scaly. Their forms vaguely suggested the anthropoid, while their heads were the heads of fish, with prodigious bulging eyes that never closed. At the sides of their necks were palpitating gills, and their long paws were webbed. They hopped irregularly, sometimes on two legs and sometimes on four. I was somehow glad that they had no more than four limbs. Their croaking, baying voices, clearly used for articulate speech, held all the dark shades of expression which their staring faces lacked ... They were the blasphemous fish-frogs of the nameless design - living and horrible.

The Shadow Over Innsmouth

A satisfying rework of an old piece I submitted some time ago. The original version was rather too whimsical and cartoony and never felt quite right. This is much more like what I had in mind when I first sketched it. More gnarley and bestial, well icthian really.
Left the original intact as well, rather than overwrite it, as it makes for a nice comparison and has its own charm [link]

He is on a diet, but the poor thing is about 20 lbs now, so he eats everything else he can find when his food isn't available. X3
