Yog Sothoth by nightserpent Yog Sothoth by nightserpent
Full page illustration for an H.P. Lovecraft role playing game. Acrylic @ 8x10". This is one of the first times I really allowed myself to use some creative license with Lovecraft's creations, too often I feel limited to previous artists' renditions. I put on some appropriate music and just acted as a channel for the concept and let it flow out. A very liberating experience!

This is very nice. Awesome details and the smooth look of it all. Even more impressive that you did this with acrylic! Awesome work :).

Thanks for your kind comments!  :)  I had the right music on and everything just fell into place, it was also a bit of a breakthrough for how I approach depicting these unfathomable entities.

Oh yes. Music really does help completing any art piece. ^w^

I definitely love this. I only wish it was bigger so I could see the detail in it.

Thank you!  I think the idea of treating this 'portrait' as more of a landscape due to Sothoth's immensity lead me to using more lanscape techniques- such as the lighting.  This one was a fun surprise.

Looks like the bubble bath from Hell.

I'll take that as a compliment, as the idea of bubbles in general was a hard one for me to make seem sinister or threatening in the slightest.

Very true to the Lovecraft vision of gods. Utter chaos beyond all comprehension. Exellent work!
