Mi-Go, the Fungi from Yuggoth by Cloister Mi-Go, the Fungi from Yuggoth by Cloister
“They were pinkish things about five feet long; with crustaceous bodies bearing vast pairs of dorsal fins or membraneous wings and several sets of articulated limbs, and with a sort of convoluted ellipsoid, covered with multitudes of very short antennae, where a head would ordinarily be.... As it was, nearly all the rumours had several points in common; averring that the creatures were a sort of huge, light-red crab with many pairs of legs and with two great bat-like wings in the middle of their back..."

(“The Whisperer in Darkness”, H.P. Lovecraft)

Excellent portrayal of the creepy scientists from 'The Whisperer in Darkness'. Could colors and shading, also good concept. I dread to think what the tentacles are from.

This is magnificent! A masterpiece! If you haven't already done a deal with Chaosium for this to be used as a book cover you should!

Cool Outer Ones of Yuggoth. I like their cilia, the tentacles, and the dark setting.

Tell me what kind of video, and you might, if it is strictly non-commercial. Video topic and purpose?

SilentArtists Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2011
its a video that is just for entertainment and will be a montage of various pictures that portray Mi-go. It will only be published on youtube. I do not wish to make profit out of it and i dont think it will not be possible either. Like i also said this video is just for enterainment and nothing offensive in any way
