Some poor guy stumbles into a cave and discovers something rather nasty. I got the idea when I was eating instant noodles with tuna and cheese. Go figure.

Wow; déjà-vu! I actually fought this thing in one of my dreams long before I saw this pic! Very nice work!
PS: the only way to kill it is stabbing every eye.
Keep on drawing!

A fine drawing. Nice shading. That's one nasty shoggoth--more horrid than anything I've imagined when reading Lovecraft. Actually, this picture reminds me a little of a scene in an old, old Berni Wrightson issue of Swamp Thing in which the Thing discovers a huge amorphous space monster in a mine shaft or something. Good job.
