Star Eater by AKS9 Star Eater by AKS9
New digital painting! This thing has been evolving over many different periods and in many different ways, and sections of this have spawned ideas and composition bases for new paintings. I'll upload a process sequence too. I'm just starting to get a taste of digital painting from imagination in colour and it's a blast.

My pal SWiTCH had an interesting way of seeing this image: "some would see evil [...] but i just see something [...] that lives in an incomprehensible way"

I wanted to paint an incomprehensible being.

Prints are available at my society6 store! society6.com/aks9/Star-Eater-1…
 I've ordered items from them and both the products quality and the image quality are very high. 

Thanks for looking : )

Love it! Gives me a REAL Lovecraft Vibe with this Cosmic Horror Theme going on if you don't mind me saying. But anyways, excellent work.

It's okay though. He's a great writer and inspirational writer but piles on the adjectives :D

I brought it up because he looks so vast, cool, and cosmic like a... well Eldritch Abomination.

I've heard that comment several times before, which is curious to me because I have never read any Lovecraft. I am curious to read something and get a sense of what it's all about, do you have any recommendations of where to start?

Well, The Dunwich Horror is a good start, you could possibly find the text online.  Also The Shadow over Innsmouth is another good one.   Maybe there's a site that has all his stories.
