Again, simple drybrushing on black undercoat. No washes or advanced techniques.

He looks marvelously gnarly. Your technique of drybrushing over black makes him look like an old colored woodcut, like something you'd find in an eighteenth century broadsheet.

oh yes, thanks for pointing that out!

I thought the "carvings" on its limbs was a nod to the Call of Cthulhu story, where its form first is seen depicted in a bas-relief, which is a carving, unless I am much mistaken. Also there are many references to Cthulhu-statues, and this one could very well be such a statue come to life.
