Asenath by AbigailLarson Asenath by AbigailLarson
I just can't get enough of the lovely Lovecraftian ladies! I wish I had time to make tons of Lovecraft art because I had way too much fun making this.

Based on H.P. Lovecraft's "The Thing on the Doorstep," here is Asenath Waite, a student at Miskatonic University with... curious abilities...


I made this piece for a Lovecraft-inspired show at Finders Creepers Gallery.

The first sketch:

This piece was made with pencil, watercolor, and digital media.

I think the green-yellow of the lamp and the white of her face provides just enough difference from the grays to make the image activate with some pop.

That story inspired me to name my first daughter Asenath when I'm older. This piece is simply lovely! I know it's dark and everything, but lovely. Lovely is the right word for it.

This picture reminds me of Amy Lee in Evanescence's music video for the song Good Enough. Very beautiful!

Very well done. Ever considered a depiction of "Keziah Mason"? Please let me know, I'm very interested to see what you produce.

Thanks! And I have absolutely considered her, and I plan to in the future when I have more time for personal work. Lovecraft's works always inspire me, I hope to make more.

Lovecraftian ladies are epic. Glad I'm not one who loves them. Asenath doesn't look much fish-like here though, but grim and dissatisfied with her... condition like in the story.
I would be glad to see more Lovecraftian heroines here. There are not so many female characters in his books, but they are intriguing.

Excellent. I really like how you lowered the saturation on everything but those lamps. A very Lovecraftian kind of colour scheme.

That's great! He was a genius. You can actually find all of his works available online for free (though of course I highly recommend you buy a copy of his collected works for your own library!) I believe the site is Dagonbytes.com... ah! Here is the link: [link]

I'm glad my work can inspire you! Perhaps some of Lovecraft's works will too! But be careful, reading too much of it might slightly warp your sanity...

Ah, don't worry there's not much sanity left in me, besides, a writer who can change reality is just one more step closer to getting a golden thumbs up :D

Thank you for the link :) I always try my best to purchase something from a great writer or artist whenever I can :D
