Cthulhu: Bog Body by Merlkir Cthulhu: Bog Body by Merlkir
A body mumified by bog water. Google Tollund man, there's a whole website about him and it's a fascinating read with great illustrations. This one is from the early iron age I think.

Done for the Cthulhu RPG, C7. All oils in ArtRage Studio Pro.
:iconnonier:
I'm not a Cthulhu player myself (I love Lovecraft's stories, but in gaming I like the kind of character development that doesn't just involve going insane and dying, even if I got to strap dynamite to myself and plunge into some nameless horror's gaping maw), so I just discovered your art here by following some Tolkien groups.

I love the serious research behind your works here, and am enjoying the cognitive dissonance of overlaying (UNDERlaying!) the Mythos on this place and time after I've just spent the last MONTH happily rereading Rosemary Sutcliff's detailed YA novels on three thousand years of British history.

Thanks for breaking my brain!
