Flying Polyp Study

Another concept for the mysterious Flying Polyps from Lovecraft's 'The Shadow Out of Time.' They are quite vaguely described, so the artist has some freedom; the only requirements are no eyes, no wings or other apparent means of flight, and some way of leaving round, five-toed footprints. I gave my polyp a sort of hold-fast base with five suction cups. They are also capable of partial or total invisibility, which I sort of showed here.
