I'm still without a blog, though I wish it wasn't so.  My webhost recently dropped their blog service, so Wordpress seems like a great option, but I have hit a wall with installing it.  Their site's 'easy install' hasn't been easy, it says to download a file and then open it with my browser.  However, when I do it just downloads yet another copy of the file.  OSX 10.9.5 on latest firefox.
SHOGGOTH!! by nightserpent
SHOGGOTH!!
Here is another double page chapter illustration for the upcoming 7th Edition of Chaosium's Call of Cthulhu RGP core rules.   The left half is mostly blank because that's where the text will be overlaid.  Everyone loves a shoggoth, right??  If you're not familiar, they are a product of horror writer H.P. Lovecraft's imagination, they fist appeared in his novel 'At The Mountains of Madness', currently in limbo for a major motion picture and well worth the read.   Astute examiners might be able to figure out roughly where and when this takes place.  As is my tradition to make puzzles for myself within my paintings, I focused on the transparent qualities of the amoebic creature.

Acrylic on paper, roughly 12x18"

United States
Greetings! I am a freelance illustrator/artist from Boston, much of my work falls into the fantasy/games genre, with a specialty of H.P. Lovecraft inspired art. I've been enjoying music illustration (CDs, LPs and the like) recently and would welcome more of it.

Current Residence: Boston, Massachusetts, USA

Thanks! :)  Dark style, but hopefully not so dark in content, and least relatively speaking. :lol:

Thanks for returning the Llama!! I love your work. The way you capture light is beautiful and that servitor costume is epic. Now if you could only turn the head into a drone so it could fly away...! :) :earth:
