Deep One, "Gurgle gurgle, oh ya gettin some tonight"!

I think their predominant colour was a greyish-green, though they had white bellies. They were mostly shiny and slippery, but the ridges of their backs were scaly. Their forms vaguely suggested the anthropoid, while their heads were the heads of fish, with prodigious bulging eyes that never closed. At the sides of their necks were palpitating gills, and their long paws were webbed. They hopped irregularly, sometimes on two legs and sometimes on four. I was somehow glad that they had no more than four limbs. Their croaking, baying voices, clearly used for articulate speech, held all the dark shades of expression which their staring faces lacked ... They were the blasphemous fish-frogs of the nameless design - living and horrible.

The Shadow Over Innsmouth

The backstory of "The Shadow Over Innsmouth" involves a bargain between Deep Ones and humans, in which the aquatic species provides plentiful fishing and gold in the form of strangely formed jewellery. In return, the land-dwellers give human sacrifices and a promise of "mixing"âEU"the mating of humans with Deep Ones. Although the Deep One hybrid offspring are born with the appearance of a normal human being, the individual will eventually transform into a Deep One, gaining immortalityâEU"by defaultâEU"only when the transformation is complete.

Very well done

I for one am also a great fan of the writings of H.P. Lovecraft.
I love your style of art, I can only assume that this was hand painted.

This is a excellent interpretation of what a deep one should appear to look like.

The facial expression on the woman does appear a bit odd, however I think it somehow captures a sense of panic induced insanity, rendering her incapable of doing anything but flailing about and seaming continuously.

Which of course I would assume would be the appropriate response in her situation.

Awsome

I would redo the upper half of the women though, she looks like as if she's getting raped.

HP Lovecraft, no?

I like how the picture kind of has a soft focus to it. Also, the subject matter es muy excellente. If there's any criticism, it's that the girl's face looks a bit strange. Then again, wouldn't we all have strange faces if we were carried off by aquatic monsters.

Great job.
