The Hound - H.P. Lovecraft

The amulet from H.P. Lovecraft's story 'The Hound'
It's made from Super-Sculpy and painted. I'm making
a mold and hope to cast some copies from green/jade
resin. The wings look a little more like wings on the figure. The pic makes him look like Super Dog with a cape.

That's beautiful!
I loved the story and this makes me want to read it again ^^
Oh and for the superdog thing... if you make it out of Kryptonite, Krypto would be screeeewed! and it would fit perfectly XD
This was one of the earliest Lovecrafts I read, and it remains one of my favorites. Kind of surprised no one's ever made an attempt to dramatize it on a horror anthology. This looks like exactly what I would expect the story's amulet to look like. Very good job.

Thanks. I'd only seen a couple of other versions so I thought it would be fun to do one.

He'd make a particularly menacing superdog. It's a fab sculpt - Lovecraft would approve, as long as you don't use it for gaming - he despised games. Or anything fish-related - he loathed seafood!

..or as a stopper for a wine bottle! He didn't like alcohol either. No wonder he had time to write!

Thanks. I recently saw an article about a guy whose sculptures will fit through the eye of a needle, so my pride in detailing something small was knocked down a bit.

I love this. So nice to see your work pop up in my inbox, it's always a treat.

Oddly, I just read that story again last evening. It's a sign!!!

(of what, I don't like to think)

I always wondered if it had hellish fleas. And now I'm moved to hunt down the ones from Tindalos and maybe draw them.

Thanks! Funny that you mention the Hounds of Tindalos. I'm working on a sculpt of them now. If they turn out I'll be posting.

OooooOooo! I can't wait! xD

Oh- have you seen #TheNecronomicon?

It's a Group for Lovecraftian artists (and writers, squee) started by *nicktheartisticfreak. I'm kinda excited about it.

I hadn't seen it; thanks. I'm looking forward to spending a little time browsing over lunch.

Well at least if he doesn't sell as The Hound you can always pass him off as superdog.

Superman's Super Dog pal Krypto. This isn't him; it's his arch enemy Rex Wroofer
