Perhaps a Gaunt of some kind...

...and here's one of my variations of an Old One from In the Mountains of Madness (tho this one isn't from the movie concepts).

Here's a version of Keziah Mason, an astral witch from HPL's  Dreams in the Witch house...

The Cradle of Leng

Their society had begun to decay. The diversity of genetic evolution was failing them. In their desperation they assumed stewardship of their own biological destiny. They became their own makers not out of natural adaptation but as a result of their own terrible will. They were wretched and immortal. They were dire and full of fury, at creation, which had abandoned them and at nature, which despised their existence.

They worshipped gods that didn't exist so in their madness they created them.

The Cradle of Leng was the city of their birth. Leng was grown from the genetic remnants of a billion years of experimentation. It was alive, this city, and tortured. It was written on the walls of Leng that torture and pain give depth and strength to its foundation.

When the city was old and near it's own death they made way to give it rebirth through itself. They inseminated the city with the seeds of malformed gods of their own creation, filled with eons of existence and the seething chaos of the thoughts of long dead divinities. The city was tortured yet again with miscarriage and abortion time and time again until one day the seed held fast and began to grow.

...and here's the finished piece. It's 9"x12",graphite, acrylic and oil on Stillman & Birn 180lb Zeta Series multimedia paper...

"Mother of Many"

"Indeed there are some beasts waiting to be born ... And others that come before they're called." Among her kind her name meant "Mother of Many"...and all her children were blind.

Wednesday, June 19, 2013

Her name was Wormwood. She was the most feral and dangerous of the Eeries. There were those that said she had a beautiful face but if she did she never revealed it to me.

Darth Talon: Corrupted

Here's the image so far...I'm calling it Darth Talon:Corrupted for the Nucleus Star Wars themed group exhibit. I exagerated the form and physical perspective a bit. I wasn't so interested in drawing the character as she had been depicted so far so I ...corrupted her.

A character/creature study for an upcoming publication...

Sunday, April 7, 2013

More than men have lost their way in the Labrynth. Wandering so long that they forget who they are. When they finally emerge nothing of their previous life remains and they seem as innocent as children, for a time.

"Will you strike me down with your scythe?" The man asked.
The angel replied"You are no demon, nor are you a god...and I would not be so cruel as to sever you from this sad, beautiful life with the bite of eternities blade. No, you need only take my hand and walk with me."
