Could imagine a strange wee game from this concept
Quite a unique aesthetic to it. Reminds me of oldschool characrer design found in the game Ecco and Space Harrier for some reason.
Space Harrier, man I haven't heard of that old game in a long time. I use to remember how I thought that game was cutting edge in the arcade. The hope version was never as good as the original machine though. Still I remember the creatures in that game being more like dragons and such but not like what I created. Still glad you like the design and yes these concepts were as if they were for a game but sadly they are not, at least not yet. :)
This Lovecraft novella is one of my favourites, since it's an epic trek through the Dreamworld and it's chock full of creatures. I saw your Randolph Carter pic yesterday, and I was hoping you'd have a crack at visualising some of the monsters.
You haven't disappointed, and you've painted it well as usual. I think the lighting on the ghasts could be less brilliant and more yellow to fit in with the twilight lighting of the scene, but I'm being pedantic to excuse an otherwise glowing review.
If you plan to make a series of these paintings dedicated to the story, I'll be looking forward to the results.
I actually have more and will post them in due time plus I plan to paint more however I have been told and have found that people do not respond well or at all when I throw them all out at once. Just before the Randolph Carter piece I do have the Ghouls from the Dreamlands though if you missed that one.
Glad you like the work.
