Th Nazi Occult - The Tome

By wraithdt
1K Favourites
I recently retrieved some of my old work files from when I was still with IFS so I decided to share some of them here with you.

This is one of a number of plate illustrations I did for Osprey Publishing's Osprey Adventure series. This one in particular is for The Nazi Occult book. Pls note that although these works may seem somewhat historical they're mostly fictional in nature.
Not exactly sure what's happening here but apparently the book is some sort of tome on necromancy. Consequences of reading it, death or loss of sanity. Done in 2012.

*points to the tome* "He chose.. poorly."

Yep, I felt like I had to do an Indiana Jones dialogue line. I also choose to type that the details, lighting, and overall atmosphere, are pretty darn sharp in your picture.

Also, that f*cker shouldn't have read through my diary. ;p

Well, looks like these guys didn't see "Raiders of the Lost Ark"...especially the last scene to have their ilk in it.

I believe that book is the Necromonicon, a book which supposedly devours your soul if you look in it.
Ugh the Necronomicon isn't even real the entities in it aren't real duh..
