Deep One Hybrid Skull Evolution

vonmeer at Devientart did a great study on how the Innsmouthlook develops on the skulls of humans that id like to share

I dislike the overall look of Fishpeople as i find it not as terrifying as humans with fishy traits and as he put it way better as i could i just quote him here

“I personally find extreme cases of the “Innsmouth look” more fantasy and less horrific. The horror is in the subtle uncanny valley effect, and they could not keep this secret if they all had fish heads.

Plus at least 75%-80% are “normal humans” in Innsmouth with little deep one traits or none at all, that’s why the deep-ones have a covenant with them. To breed, but they all eventually leave…the humans keep breeding with humans after all, they only must bear one hybrid and that’s not anything romantic..

So my reference is for a hybrid, with heavy atavistic traits moving towards full deep-one. Some hybrids may stop in a intermediary stage and get an extreme case of the Innsmouth Look.

It’s just a photo manip and redraw of a Human Skull and that of a Wolf-Eel, based on images from Skulls Unlimited”

Fishman hybrids

That fact is why i love the Deep one miniatures from Brigadegames so much !

the only thing i consider the Innsmouthlook to differ from normal humans is that the humans should have aspects of fishes/frogs while a few may look very mutated… Of course in a game as Strange Aeons there is a wider range of mutation to choose from so that you can use what you want….but fr normal Innsmouthfolk / Cultists , i wanted to use miniatures that do not resemble hideous Monsters but creepy humans instead
