Shoggoth Eats by Cobalt358 Shoggoth Eats by Cobalt358
oil on canvas 76x61cm

yeah i know it's blatantly inspired by giger, but i got inspired after seeing the trailer for prometheus [link]

i am so hyped for this film, lol. it feels like the first really brilliant alien film since the original.

Exceedingly well done composition, and I really wouldn't have guessed that that is oil paint. The range of tones is well presented. I'm certainly getting the surrealist quality.

And Congratulations on the DD! Well deserved.

(too bad about the movie though...)

cheers, yeah a lot of people think my work is in acrylic, or coloured pencil sometimes which is weird.

well i didn't think it was all that bad, it could have been better though.

What a neat piece! When I saw the thumbnail, I thought it might be some kind of Pacific Northwest tribal design, like on a totem pole. Then I looked at the full-size thing, and of course it turned out to be quite different. But I love the way you've layered so many allusions, like a lot of the best vintage Surrealist collage work.
