This is a personal piece and technically still a work-in-progress, but I'm happy enough with it to share. Later in 2015, I'll be selling a series of Lovecraft inspired art as prints.

Well done! Those wing-ends adding support is something I've never thought of, and it makes this nightgaunt more than just a thing with bat wings. And you've captured Lovecraft's 'suggestion of a face" on it. Interesting! Clap

In.Credible. An amazing interpretation, which reflects Lovecraft's description from The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath. So lovely and awful.

Really gaunt. Good design.

:) Thanks very much! I wanted gaunt. Gaunt is good. Looking at so much Salvador Dali as a kid has finally paid off. ;)
