Miasmal by dloliver Miasmal by dloliver
“The basis of all true cosmic horror is violation of the order of nature, and the profoundest violations are always the least concrete and describable.”
― H.P. Lovecraft, Selected Letters III: 1929-1931

A photoshop sketch of a shape I have had in my head for a while now. Better out than in, as they say...

And there you have it, the proper violation of the order of nature.
Looks killer!

Ya know it seems to me that your work always radiates an aura of humanity. This creature is no exception. I agree with ~disresponsible I for one would love to learn even one or two of your tricks and if your camera shy use fraps [link] and just capture what's going on on the screen. You don't have to be in it at all. Thanks as always for sharing your work. As you already know I love and am inspired by your work.

thanks man.
im familiar with fraps but i just feel my rather random and hesitant drawing method wouldnt exactly make for riveting viewing :)

Now that I can understand. I'm more interested in method than what order things are done. I just learn easier by watching something done.

that is amazing looking, where do you get all this detail from? Your specular lighting is awesome=D

Thanks a lot ;)
Sketched and shaded a blank canvas in PS with the burn and dodge tools (i use those 2 a lot) to create a greyscale drawing.
Then tinted it with some colour and picked out the sharpest highlights. Finished off with a bit of lighting and atmospherics :)
Well, you did ask :D
