Concept- Elder Thing by NathanRosario Concept- Elder Thing by NathanRosario
Elder Things-This concept is based loosely on Lovecraft's description of the creature as it appears on the story "At the Mountains of Madness".

The Elder Things were the first alien species to come to the Earth, colonizing the planet about one billion years ago. They stood roughly six feet tall and had the appearance of a huge, oval-shaped barrel with starfish-like appendage at both ends. The top appendage was a head adorned with five eyes, five eating tubes, and a set of cilia for "seeing" without light. The bottom appendage was five-limbed and was used for walking and other forms of locomotion. The Elder Things were vegetable-like in shape, having radial symmetry instead of the bilateral symmetry of bipeds. They also differed in that they had a five-lobed brain. The Elder Things exhibited vegetal as well as animal characteristics, and in terms of reproduction, multiplied using spores.

I always assumed that the lower appendages were more like tentacles. This is awesome.
