Oh yeah...this

People have been asking me how long that Cthulhu piece took me (see below). And they're understandably surprised when I tell them probably more than 60 hours. It's definitely time-consuming, getting lots of tendrils and tentacles all detailed properly (and there's still some that I'm not quite happy with). But as I said, I had a lot of misfires on this, picking up the sketch after few weeks or months and trying it different ways. Most of those misfires are posted below, but I'd forgotten about this one I'd started in pencil...

So whereas I'd like to play it off like I could just whip something up, it's really more like something I failed and failed at, until I had my Old Man and the Sea moment.
