Amazing work! I love the eerie mood.

Architecture NOT meant for human use. Indeed, the Old Ones who once lived here would have butchered any humans who came in...

Pulled from out of someone's imagination while reading the story

It's pretty awesome. I realize this is inspired by Mountains rather than a direct illustration (certainly no humanoid statuary in the original), but this really gets across the impression of descent into an abandoned metropolis of alien titans. 
oh god it's the place that sends you mad!

Nah, that's Rl'yeh. This one just turns you into a Lovecraft narrator [1], almost as terrible a fate. :)


[1] Unless you look at the Wrong Mountain.

I have been re-reading "At the Mountains of Madness" and I really like how in this piece you have managed to communicate the strange geometry and massive scale that HP Lovecraft describes so vaguely.

That subtle perspective /angle shifting - perfect. Really well done.

A clear contrast to what was happening outside. It it like a labyrinth of madness with all that complexity, but this detail is astounding. Oh my God, you are amazing.

most of the artists focus on designing characters rather than the background..which isn't less important than the character's plot!!...but you sir, are a prodigy!! where do you get the inspirations? you have such great imagination!! i think thats why i watched you!!
