Dark Young of Shub-Niggurath by dloliver Dark Young of Shub-Niggurath by dloliver
Something black in the road, something that wasn't a tree. Something big and black and ropy, just squatting there, waiting, with ropy arms squirming and reaching. . . It came crawling up the hillside. . . and it was the black thing of my dreams – that black, ropy, slime jelly tree-thing out of the woods. It crawled up and it flowed up on its hoofs and mouths and snaky arms.

—Robert Bloch, "Notebook Found in a Deserted House"

Excellent work, love the creatures design and the dark setting that you have illustrated it within. The legs and feet of the monster work very well in particular I think.
