In HP Lovecraft's works, the Elder Sign was thought to protect individuals from the Elder Gods, a race of Extraterrestrial Monsters bent on the destruction of the universe. While only a handsign in his books, the Elder Sign through a student of Lovecraft's, August Derelith grew into the symbol of a penacle with a flaming eye in the center. In my version, I chose to showcase the Elder Sign as a living, organic form made up of flesh and bones. This was a study in texture based on the art of Wayne Barlowe, the famous fantasy illustrator.

Unearthly creatures trying to break the Elder Sign. Will the world continue to exist after the overwhelming darkness will be fallen?

This work has been used as a graphic element in the title-page of "Lovecraft Black & White", [link] an art-book containing several works by various international artists. The book is published by "Dagon Press".

It took more than I expected. :)

Cosmic Horror coverart
(c) Marijn bierhof

as I assume is obvious cosmic horror is based on the cthulhu mythos.

I was asked by marijn to do the cover for his project (its not really commercial.) and I was happy to as I was really behind on my honors to master cthulhu anyway ;)

also did some interior pieces (and still have some unfinished.) to be found on my DA as well.

This is the version used by H.P Lovecraft and Chaosium. I first took two pieces of soapstone. I then carved the image in reverse and backed it onto the other stone.

Using lead free pewter in a cast iron bullet casting ladle, I brought the unholy metal to a liquid state and poured it into the mold.

After removing it, I bathed it in some chemicals to change its color and patina.

In the spaces between the gates dwell the Larvae of Yog Sothoth, half formed and abandoned by their progenitor they are ever hungry and seek to devour any flesh that passes the gates. But the adept who knows the seal of Yog Sothoth will not fear them for they are bound by it. Even as they are called through the gate and into the world of men are they bound by it, as when Ysra called them down upon the armies of Raasum-Ka and that great host of men was consumed in a single night.
(Rlyeh Text, page 946, translated from the Primal Aklo by Prof. Ichiro)
