The Great Old Ones and Outer Gods of Mythos(Redux) Picture

It's time for an update and the better version of Team Cthulhu Mythos as working title, otherwise known as of now called The Great Old Ones and the Outer Gods of Mythos.

Honestly, I have to tell you this because of two deviantArtists, Robot-Electro-Jones who gave a WTF comment and Wyzilla who provided the real answer of who is the most powerful god in the Cthulhu Mythos and heeding me with warnings, which I had nothing to do with the Lovecraft fan community. The truth is Cthulhu was the popular culture to the media and most recognizable villain/anti-hero despite of not a powerful evil god from the Cthulhu Mythos. The real and most powerful god of the Lovercraftian Mythological Lore is Azathoth, the Blind Idiot God, while the second most powerful is Yog-Sothoth, the Beyond One.

I've added and changed the origins and info on the team profile artwork to clear things up once and for all so some people can understand why am I doing this and some stuff but I'm not the only one who's making this up and pissing off on those who's reading Lovecraft's story and the Mythos. For example, there are many Cthulhu varieties appeared on TV shows and comic books, including video games which the developers respected the elements from the Lovecraft stories used in Call of the Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth. Aside of that game, there's another game called Cthulhu Saves the World which you play as Cthulhu himself along with other RPG characters and that game is a RPG game on Steam and Xbox Live Arcade where you have to play the game to become a hero in order get his dark powers back. And most bizarre appearance is he appeared in the mediocre beat-em-up game on the PC called Pray for Death and that got my attention of that character, along with Anubis as I saw it on the back box and the game itself.

Now the TV shows. The most recognizable appearance of Cthulhu is on South Park season 14 in two episodes, "Mysterion Rises" and "Coon vs. Coon and Friends." Worst for the Cthulhu fans (if I'm right about it) is he appeared on Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy, he appeared on season 1 episode called "Big Trouble on Billy's Basement" and season 5 episode "Prank Call of Cthulhu" which it also includes Yog-Sothoth. Before that, there was a Cthulhu-lookalike named Vorn the Unspeakable which he appeared on the Warner Brother's animated series, Freakazoid!, but he appeared only one episode called "Statuesque" and he looked so barely resemblance to Cthulhu except his quote from the show.

As for the comics, well, they have the elements taken from the Lovecraft stories and Cthulhu Mythos from Boom! Comics and Avatar Comics, including Infes2ation published by IDW Publishing.

For the music, many metal bands such as Metallica and Cradle of Filth did made the songs about the Call of Cthulhu and other references from Lovecraft works.

Now guys, look, I understand and respect your opinions and I got nothing to with other community and jumping on this angry and backlash bandwagon on this crazy discussion, but I just doing with my artwork style to draw the characters for my project and it has nothing to do with the Cthulhu Mythos, well with references and source materials. And I'm guessing you're saying "oh my god, what is wrong with you?" Trust me, it's my thing and I'll respect your words. And speaking of this crazy discussion, August Derleth who wrote the stories and associating with Howard Philips Lovecraft, was expanding the shared universe. After Lovecraft's death, many writers expanded the universe and more stories published with his legacy known as the Lovecraftian Horror. Aside from the well-known writers, many people are making Cthulhu as the pop culture which it has become a considerate public domain.

Anyways, enjoy my redux artwork with very clear details from the source materials and my own version with new designs, new characters, and new background.

And finally, Happy Halloween!
