Coming of Azathoth

I got commissioned to revisit the digital version of this piece so it could be printed at a large size. I repainted it and "improved" it :)
This is going to be printed on a 2x3 ft art print. Exciting! I'm totally stoked that people are willing to hang up my art as a centerpiece in their home.

Azathoth and nyarlathotep!

"And at the last from inner Egypt came
The strange dark One to whom the fellahs bowed; Silent and lean and cryptically proud,
And wrapped in fabrics red as sunset flame. Throngs pressed around, frantic for his commands, But leaving, could not tell what they had heard; While through the nations spread the awestruck word That wild beasts followed him and licked his hands.

Soon from the sea a noxious birth began; Forgotten lands with weedy spires of gold; The ground was cleft, and mad auroras rolled Down on the quaking citadels of man. Then, crushing what he chanced to mould in play, The idiot Chaos blew Earth’s dust away."

It's the end of the world... Nyarlathotep, apparently fully satisfied with his horrors and deeds, decides it's now time to bring the universe, as well as himself, to an end... by awakening his father, the Blind Idiot God itself... Azathoth.

I think Nyarlathotep is the only being that also would exist outside of Azathoth's dream, as it's his own avatar

EDIT: Jesus I just realized how old this comment of yours is, my apologies ^^'

I wonder if this sonnet came from one of those dreams that Lovecraft awoke from, with a rotting headache.

The despair and hopelessness have always been drawn with such an emotion I barely have words to express myself...

Fantastic composition, it almost has a 'classical' feel to it with the crowd of figures reaching up towards the corner.
