Dreamquest Night Gaunts


Description used as inspiration:

Shocking and uncouth black things with smooth, oily, whale-like surfaces, unpleasant
horns that curved inward toward each other, bat wings whose beating made no sound, ugly prehensile paws, and barbed tails that lashed needlessly and disquietingly. And worst of all, they never spoke or laughed, and never smiled because they had no faces at all to smile with, but only a suggestive blankness where a face ought to be. All they ever did was clutch and fly and tickle; that was the way of nightgaunts.

This is one beautiful piece dude. Very well done, I love the way you understand light and shadow.

Could you check out my music? It would be awesome to have a review by you in any of my songs.

I see you also have read Lovecraft!

I actually have been reading Dreamquest of Unknown Kadath, I've been taking it with me everywhere. I love Lovecraft, but I hate how the whole book just seemed like one very very long journey with very little to do with any of the points inbetween.

Nice version of the nightgaunts and I comment a great bravo on this work. I actually checked this pic out because of the title and wanted to see your take. Awesome.

4/5 and 9/10.

Dreamquest is my favorite Lovecraft story mainly because of it's richness and how he described a whole world. Check out some of my other work as I have been working on a Dreamquest project if you are interested.
