Cthulhu: The Lord of Insanity and Other "School-Friendly" Homecoming Floats
School's once again in session and once again it is almost time for the Homecoming Parade! Naturally, I fall into the role of lead designer, lead creator, lead painter, and lead assembler of my class's (and for some reason everyone else's) float. Well, anyways, this year's theme is movie genres. My class has science fiction. They wouldn't let me include the Rocky Horror Picture Show anywhere on the float, but so help me, a giant Cthulhu will be what leads my class!
This giant wad of newspaper is your Lord of Insanity.
By the time I'm done with this thread, he will be a full-blown flying squid-man and I will more than likely be in some serious artistic trouble with the school for giving small children nightmares.
I have until October 7th. I'll update when I can.
Hopefully at least one of you out there will find this cool or inspiring. Enjoy the ride!
I neglected to mention that you have to cover your good eye while you squint. It also helps to stare at a light for 30 seconds too. Lol. Oh, I'm expecting so many late nights this week. It was already 2 when I started the wad! But don't worry. Having shaky hands will only make using an x-acto knife more interesting!
Managed to get this far during school, then I came home and took a 4 hour nap. Ouch.
Anyways, I tightened his head up even more, gave him more of a cranium bump in the middle of his head and then made it even longer (which you can't really see). Next I'm going to accentuate the eyes and then add the tentacles later on. Something tells me that I'll have a lot of awake time between the hours of 1 and 4 tonight.

Reason: My picture wasn't there. I feel as though that was an important part of the post.
