Acrylic Paint on 12x16 canvas panel.
WIP: https://www.facebook.com/CapnInsanity/photos/a.251063141677471.54723.251056621678123/997905536993224/?type=3&theater
(( I still want to do a timelapse video but i am pressed for time. Will do one later ))
ONLY DIGITAL ALTERATIONS WERE BRIGHTNESS DUE TO SCANNER!!

This is for the contest entry for Draw with Jazza's contest of the month.

This is also my very first entry!! The storyteller depicted is HP Lovecraft and he is very close to me for storytelling. His vague but heavily detailed descriptions of his monsters would always conjure many horrific variables each time i read them. Coincidentally I live only about an hour's drive from his grave and it is a neat journey to go on.

Depicted on canvas from top to bottom and left to right: Yog-Shothoth, Nyarlathotep, Cthulhu, The Hound, Fish people (( worshippers of Dagon )), and a couple of robed cultists. There were many sigils and symbols that are inherently 'lovecraft', however the branch was the original that Lovecraft himself has made.

Originally i was going to tint the image but kept the black and white since that is what we associate the 1920s due to movies.
