It found the dogs, and somehow got near enough to Charnauk to get him. The others smelled it - heard it - I don’t know - anyway they went wild, and broke chains, and attacked it before it was finished. The thing we found was part Charnauk, queerly only half-dead, part Charnauk half-digested by the jellylike protoplasm of that creature, and part the remains of the thing we originally found, sort of melted down to the basic protoplasm.

Imagining that thing animated made me gag a bit.

I’m also humming some generic crappily-awesome Cyriak circus music in my head while doing so.

My God, I just noticed… the dog! The goblet! The grandmother in the background! And don’t get me started on the trypophobia!

EDIT: And the more you zoom, the worse it gets!

Cost of a convolutional neural network to identify the most distinctive parts of an image and then make the rest of the image be crazy : 1gm of DMT

If I had known that the Abyss looked like that, I would have known not to stare into it.


#15

i’d love to see a version with movement.


#16

I quite like it. This is a squirrel enactment of Inception. Obviously…
