How can he read with no eyes? jk. I too feel like tentacles grip my mind when I read Lovecraft's work. So far the Dunwich Horror has gripped me like a fever but Call of Cthulhu is something I had to read three times just out of some indescribable force pulling my thoughts to it like some infernal gravity.

Thanks again! Lovecraft is the biggest influence on my art (Apart from visual artist obviously) Once he's in your head there's no getting rid of him

That is probably the best comment I have had on this piece. Thanks!

I know what you mean. Its like pulling teeth to get people to say something around here. You do great work. Keep it up.

Really great kind of somber emotion to this piece, if that makes any sense. I love it, nice work.
sorrowking's avatar
Thanks! I was going for a sense of gloom

I love the darkness of this piece. The shading is really good, mate. The tentcles make for a really, really interesting composition too, almost with an odd sense of symmetry in the top half.

Thanks! I decided to keep the tenticles within the frame of the picture for that reason
