My tribute to H.P. Lovecraft on his deathday, March 15th, 1937 🦑
This genious creator was able to curb the power of the cosmic nightmare and create not only a new direction in the horror genre, but also his own unique mythology. His works also had a strong influence on me and my art

Planned this portrait for the writer's birthday (August 20th), but by the will of fate finished it much earlier (Now E.A Poe portrait have a good company, right?)

Art prints with this piece available on society6

He and Poe created a new type of horror literature!

I'd take my hat off to them but I'm afraid my head might fall off...again.

Are you going to make more writer's tributes? Would you limit to horror writers or just the ones that inspire you?

He's so calm while a giant tentacle monster comes out from the book. xD I can see him saying, "Meh. Everyday life." haha

Love the little details - the statuette on the bookshelf, the nautilus shell and the sextant, the color of his vest.

I'm replaying it because the community organised an event called "Return to Yharnam" every year since the game came out. Honestly, Bloodborne never get's old to me. And it's one of my favourite games of all time next to The Witcher 3, NieR Automata, The Last of Us, Shadow of The Colossus and Persona 5!
