This form of Abhoth appears to be a large brain atop a dripping spinal chord, with a mass of flesh dangling from it in strips and myraid tentacles. It comes complete with a bubbling pool with some hands reaching out of it.
As a D&D monster, this is perhaps the best representation of an illithid elder brain. I painted the brain pink and the fleshy parts skin-colored and then gave it a green wash, which unfortunately muddied it a bit. Overall though this is an excellent sculpt for any kind of brain-alien or eldritch being from beyond.
