Another Lovecraft-ish inspired thing, a little tamer then the last one.


I have yet to get done the other thing I need to get done today, so as much as I could nitpick this to death I'm going to go do what I need to do. Ta ta.

I really like the choice of colours you used for this one. Combined with your colouring style, it really makes the design pleasant to look at. Your attention to detail is incredible.

It looks like the Lovecraftian version of the luminoth from metroid.

Great work here.

I wish I could be that good.

Shiny... AND EVIL!

I love that head- it's so intricate! But then, a lot of your work is. :) He kinda looks like he's wearing lace. Maybe that's just me.

This one actually doesn't terrify me as much as the last one. He has a sort of playfulness about him, perhaps it's the color, or how's he's floating there with his little legs curved up under him.

Your digital painting skills are really improving, and excellent use of the orange light source, it really makes him stand out.
I wouldn't mind having a little army of these floating around me, as long as I didn't have to feed them all. xD

Another amazing piece...Everything I was thinking about that first Lovecraft-ian creature applies to this one as well, aside from the deceptive symmetricality. I could almost see this one as a Nightgaunt--it's like a Nightgaunt without wings, one that flies under its own arcane internal power source. I love the way both of these creatures seem to glow with a kind of sinister, eldritch energy, as though other-dimensional forces are leaking through their very tissues from mysterious internal organs of ill-defined purpose (perhaps hunes?)...Very, very cool!

Interesting, I didn't make that connection at all. I think they were smaller, smoother, more red-purple with very different heads though, yes?

yeah the heads are different. they were white-ish color... only the long arms and skin texture are similar.=p

Fantastic design! :) The lace-like mantle and stretched skin make it seem almost fragile. I like the simple background too, it's amazing what a little color and line will do to give a sketch that extra oopmh!

Those colours are just amazing. Your painting skeelz have just gone through the roof; I remember when you were worried about painting things on the computer. Pfffff, you had nothing to worry about. XD

I really enjoy seeing these monsters painted. It adds so much depth. Keep up the lovely work!

Thank you! I'm glad you dig 'em, it is much more satisfying for me to see them colored as well. There's a certain style I have in mind, and while I'm not quite there yet I'm starting to get the hang of it.
