H.P. Lovecraft by AbigailLarson H.P. Lovecraft by AbigailLarson
The delightful Mister Lovecraft. My personal favorite in the series thus far, and the most fun.
Drawn traditionally and then colored in Photoshop, loosely based on this lovely stock image: [link]

I think this is going to be the last of my personal pieces for a while. I've still got W. Irving and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle on my list, but I have a feeling it'll be a while before I have time for them.

Used as cover art for the Myths and Legend eZine: [link]

Ohhhhhh, details... I love details.

The rats and the tentacle doing the writing and the beetles under the glass (btw, that sting on the large beetle doesn't look healthy at all)  ...  and that one claw looks like even the armchair was having a really bad identity crisis.

Both the thing under the floor boards and the one behind the wall at the left remind be a bit of Oogie Boogie from Nightmare before Christmas. 

Maybe the creepies/saddest thing is how the room (and Lovecraft himself, for that matter) look so run-down: rickety little chair, partly broken oil lamp, patches on the clothing and the arm-chair. Poor man. You'd think the father of modern SciFi would have made a bit more money out of all his weirdness.

Oh no.
When I opened up THE NECRONOMICON and chanted, "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn"...I didn't mean for Cthulhu to pop out of the floor and the walls! :omg:

This is amazing and what a tribute to one of the most fantastic horror authors of our time. :clap:

I love the brooding, doubting pose, and how the monsters are all just out of his view.
