Kabuki Invoke Three of Lovecraft’s Most Horrific Gods

September 22, 2014 by dracs

We have seen a lot of awesome concept sketches coming out of Kabuki for their upcoming Lovecraft Nightmares Kickstarter, but recently three have appeared that have me particularly intrigued. These are the invocations, used to summon the mighty gods Cthulhu, Nyarlathotep and Shub-Niggurath.

Cthulhu Invocations

Nyarlathotep Invocation

Shub-Niggurath Invocation

Unlike the previous sketches, which have mostly been concepts for idols of the elder deities, these are apparently more in line with summoning scrolls.

Each of these early sketches show some great design work, each geared towards showing off a particular aspect of the monstrous being. I particularly like Nyarlathotep (middle image) with the tormented souls under his… feet?

Will you show your devotion to the old ones by pledging to Kabuki’s Kickstarter when it launches?
