Google "Jimiyo Comic Alliance" I was accused of plagiarism on this. Later in the article, there was a disclaimer that stated both artists used the same reference photo. (After the internet mob frenzied and it incited a three day storm of Twitter hate.) Google Cthulhu and Lovecraft and see how many designs that are similar in concept, and YOU decide if I stole.
"If I say that my somewhat extravagant imagination yielded simultaneous pictures of an octopus, a dragon, and a human caricature, I shall not be unfaithful to the spirit of the thing. A pulpy, tentacled head surmounted a grotesque and scaly body with rudimentary wings; but it was the general outline of the whole which made it most shockingly frightful." -- H.P. Lovecraft, The Call of Cthulhu
“Those Old Ones were gone now, inside the earth and under the sea; but their dead bodies had told their secrets in dreams to the first men, who formed a cult which had never died.” ― H.P. Lovecraft, The Call of Cthulhu and Other Weird Stories
