A new vision
from being a hardcore Lovecraft fan, this is an amazing illustration. I really like how you described the functions as well as appearances of the different boy parts and the look of one as it would appear in traveling forming. do you think you could possible do this with other mythos creatures, maybe the Mi-Go or a Byakhee?
this is a pretty solid concept sheet if not a little crowded of an example.
im aware the black background is representational of the space these guys fly through but it's absolutley eating your picture and consuming all the work you put into it.
i suppose it would depend ultimately on what this concept sheet was used for in the grand scheme of things but using such a dark background on such a detailed piece is really a shame. we've seen black all over the place, we want to see the elder things in all thier timeless glory.
that being said this is actually one of my favorite images of these well known lovecraftian beings. anyone that actually makes me appreciate such a bizarre design has done a great job. the "head" detail drawings are very well done but i would of liked to see some more breathing room on the canvas for them to be able to appreciate them without feeling so confined.
i hope this doesn't come off too negatively because i truly like the piece. i just think that it needs to be represented better with a few simple changes.
