H.P. Lovecraft

The delightful Mister Lovecraft. My personal favorite in the series thus far, and the most fun.
Drawn traditionally and then colored in Photoshop, loosely based on this lovely stock image: [link]

I think this is going to be the last of my personal pieces for a while. I've still got W. Irving and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle on my list, but I have a feeling it'll be a while before I have time for them.

Used as cover art for the Myths and Legend eZine: [link]

Oh wow, I found this picture on /x/ back in 2009. Never thought I would stumble across the original 11.5 years later.

I love the tenseness captured by the rough outlines, and attention to lore detail.

I enjoy Lovecraft's expression in this version. He appears quite concerned--not fearful, mind you, merely concerned, and rather exhausted as well. He's likely thinking "Oh dear Howard, what sort of mess have you gotten yourself into?" as that is his own creation eating the wallpaper, if I'm not mistaken.
Wow, That's amazing.

He was the last of his family, the surname becoming extinct with him. Sisters lived on, but married people with prosaic surnames.

He was of aristocratic descent and ancestors had ties with major lines. After the manor burned down, the Lovecraft barons gave up and emigrated. His father went wildly insane on a business trip and spent the rest of his life in an asylum .
That's really good
