Yog-Sothoth by Drhoz Yog-Sothoth by Drhoz
The Lurker at the Threshold, the All-in-One, the Key and the Gate, The Prolonged of Life

One of the more ambivalent Outer Gods - is he a malevalent invader, a la Dunwich Horror? Or a helpful extradimensional being coterminous with the entirety of Time and Space, a la Randolph Carter's experiences?

either way, marbles and particle collision photos were useful in portraying this strange god

I'm a massive Lovecraft fan and this has to be one of the best depictions of Yog I have seen.

Also, is he a patron demon invoked by the Resurrection Spell ( It's given in full in the novel CASE OF CHARLES DEXTER WARD, but the process of rendering a corpse into the fine blue powder that is needed is NOT given. To have that spell and the means to distill Essential Salts ! The friends and loved ones I could bring back !!!

In regards to this manifestation of Yog-Sothoth , do not fear the gleaming spheres, but RUN FOR IT if they start to burst !

This is easily the best rendition of ol' Yog I've seen on Deviant Art. It satisfies Lovecraft's descriptions perfectly!
