God of Madness by GuthrieArtwork God of Madness by GuthrieArtwork
:icondonotuseplz::iconmyartplz:

~Inspired half by cthulhu legend and a dream I had.~

He can easily conceal himself as a human if he so chooses, and he often does considering his true form will cause any mortal mind to go completely insane. Thankfully, as an artist my mind has gone insane long ago so he allowed me to make this lovely sketch of his true form so that puny mortals may now admire him without their brains exploding.

His name is actually Bob, and not showing his true form can be quite frustrating sometimes.  Oh, the humans can go "lemme take my coat off", but when he tries to take off his human skin suddenly it's all "AAAAAAAAAAAH!  AAAAAAAAH!   AAAAAAAAAH... AAAAAAH... HA... Ha.... hahahahahahaha, AHAHAHAHAHAH, AAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAA", and "Oh god cut out my eyes", or "it's violating my mind".  ALL the time. 
Mortals get it so lucky.  THEY have to actually try to make someone go mad.

Added this one to my favorites both for the excellently done creature design and funny description.

Your decription made me laugh! Very cool.
I like how the claws are more like tenticles. I'll call them tenticlaws:).

They are indeed tentacles, thought it'd be an interesting twist instead of just claws.

Is that the evolved form or Ninetails? :iconimhappyplz:
But seriously, this is awesome.
Reply
:iconguthrieartwork:
GuthrieArtwork Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2011   Digital Artist
You caught me it is totally Ninetails' evolution. In order to get one make sure you have a full party composed of one level 99 Ninetails and five level 100 Vulpix. Level the Ninetails to 100 at exactly the stroke of midnight and it will evolve! :iconurhappyplz:

p.s. Thanks. :)
