Concept- Dunwich Horror by NathanRosario Concept- Dunwich Horror by NathanRosario
Another concept, this time the creature is from a story called "The Dunwich Horror" by HP Lovecraft. A truly awesome story and one of my favorites by him.
C+C always welcomed!

Excellent concept. "The Dunwich Horror" is one of my favorites, too. I can easily envision this as the 'twin' Wilbur Whatley nurtured. It's not as massive as I've envisioned in my readings of the story; but then again, it could easily be the twin in its juvenile stage. You've really captured Lovecraft's vision of otherworldly life; creatures that just don't fix into our concepts of what's "natural."

This is absolutely brilliant. The description of Wilbur Whatley's brother is somewhat vague and we only catch a glimpse of him by the end of the story. I've seen several artists try and make it work but this is by far the most impressive version I've seen.
Outstanding work

I've known this story for ages and I just read it back for the nth time this month
I think it's a very good depiction of the thing, and beautifully drawn too
