Crimson CHOW #39 - Lovecraftian Cultist

This week's theme and brief by previous winner, JosephCow

Crimson Character of the Week #39
Lovecraftian Cultist

"In Lovecraft's stories of Cthulhu, the worshippers of these ancient gods often have strange costumes, body modification, weapons and cult paraphernalia. What would that look like? Need not actually be from that universe, just the general inspiration."

The best of the CHOWs will be picked by an anonymous poll in the Finals thread and the winner is given the opportunity to pick the theme of the next CHOW's design, as well as becoming the title banner for that week! So go hard, design something interesting and unique!

  • No photograph paint overs, must be 100% original work. (See next rule for exception)
  • 3D is permitted and renders MAY be used as whole or in part of a painting, as long as YOU created the work. Pre-made and/or purchased, online, assets are forbidden.
  • There is no restriction on the character's gender, time period or culture.
  • Studies are recommended, but not required.
  • There is no restriction on image formats (horizontal, vertical, square).
  • Environment backgrounds are optional.
  • Keep in mind you are not required to stick to what is in the passage. It is more of a guide in terms of mood.

  • You must post at least one WIP in the WIP thread to be accepted into the final poll.
  • Finals must be posted in the finals thread before the deadline.
  • At least 3/4 of the character must be visible (minimum from the knees up).
  • Only ONE submission per person in the finals thread.
  • No fanart. We want to see your original, unique interpretations!
  • Voting will be held for 5 days after the deadline.
  • In an event of a tiebreaker, a winner will be chosen through a randomized name picker.

Deadline is Monday, October 24th @ UTC: 23:59

I'm extending the deadline on this for another month before trying another prompt.
Lol yeah, maybe this one's a dud, or people are just busy. I will probably still draw something though. I have been really busy the past few weeks and haven't had a chance at all

I think it's a cool prompt. I just feel more like doodling aimlessly than participating in challenges for now.

Sometimes people are just particularly busy, as in your case, so I'm not gonna rush through prompts at any rate.
Yeah for sure. I'm actually impressed with the participation we've gotten from these in the past few months considering it's not a huge amount of active members on this forum.

I just finished moving house so thank you for the extension!

I'm going with the tentapriest - the -people of the skyward eye- thing was a bit wishy washy...
