Thank you for the kind comment (and favorite).  Unfortunately, hitting it on the head only seems to anger it. ;)

Thanks for your kind comment and question!  In the case of Azathoth, it started out with a lot of random scribbling that filled the entire surface of the paper.  Then, much like one might see things in cloud in the sky, I start to recognize forms in the scribbles.  Then I refine those shapes to make them look more realistic.  I am just as surprised with the outcome as the viewers! :lol:
