Done for Artorder challenge "HP Lovecraft Creature Lab"
'Bigger'n a barn...all made o' squirmin' ropes...hull thing sort o' shaped like a hen's egg bigger'n anything with dozens o' legs like hogs-heads that haff shut up when they step...nothin' solid abaout it--all like jelly, an' made o' sep'rit wrigglin' ropes pushed clost together...great bulgin' eyes all over it...ten or twenty maouths or trunks a-stickin' aout all along the sides, big as stove-pipes an all a-tossin' an openin' an' shuttin'...all grey, with kinder blue or purple rings...an' Gawd it Heaven--that haff face on top...' Oh, oh, my Gawd, that haff face--that haff face on top of it... that face with the red eyes an' crinkly albino hair, an' no chin, like the Whateleys...It was a octopus, centipede, spider kind o' thing, but they was a haff-shaped man's face on top of it, an' it looked like Wizard Whateley's, only it was yards an' yards acrost....

I really like your style. especially the good use of black accents at the right places which makes masses (lights and darks) looking great and clear.
You're generally using black (dark) outlines on your figures a lot so the works are more color drawings then paintings but IMHO that creates a very nice impression at the end.
King Kull: Thank you for sharing your thoughts - this is exactly the kind of feedback I'm looking for. I guess black outlines are more like a leftovers of dark color, an underpainting if ya will. I'm sometimes a bit too lazy to clean up the edges...afterall this is personal work that I do on my spare time between the paying work, so its more like a therapy and I can do pretty much enything I want. I've been a bit worried if I use too much darks, so I'm very glad to hear those blacks are making impact.
You have some very nice characters and pieces here.
Your creating a great fantasy world.
