Mr. Corbitt's Final Repose by dloliver Mr. Corbitt's Final Repose by dloliver
The house, an unremarkable and dilapidated example of colonial real-estate, had stood on Lazenby Street on the outskirts of Boston for numerous generations. Its neglected front porch listed alarmingly, the wooden pillars barely resisting the ravages of rot and untold years of indifferent repair.
Its occupants never remained in it for long and currently it stood empty as it had for the last five years.
Residents slept fitfully under its roof. Odd noises and half-glimpsed, half-imagined presences caused many such acute distress, that some departed after a single night. Braver souls persisted, denying their senses, but swiftly fell prey to ill-health. Others succumbed to nervous afflictions of the most appalling sort. The last owner killed his wife and children in the basement, with a kitchen knife...
Behind a wall of crumbling bricks in the cluttered basement is a voidspace hidden in the buildings foundations. The original owner and builder of the house on Lazenby street resides here... This is the resting place of Mr. Walter Corbitt.


(Based on a Call of Cthulhu scenario by Chaosium Inc.)

Walter Corbitt had become a vampire of sorts. Not one the suave, fanged, darkly beautiful variety, but a dead man. One who had bound his spirit to the earthly plane. He was able to subsist on the psychic fear of any who entered the house on Lazenby street, but when his hiding place was threatened he had other, more direct, means of harming his would-be discoverers...
This is the form in which he was discovered, and eventually defeated. Even without a physical body to house his spirit he was able to return in dreams to take sustenance. They met him again in that fashion, as a dreamwraith they knew as the thin man.

(I shall revisit Walter again, the old drawing of the Thinman in my gallery, I can certainly improve upon...)

EDIT: A long overdue revamp of an old piece. I have a lot of fondness for this image and for the character it depicts so I decided to have a go at improving the realism, with subtler lighting, better texturing and an overall more finished look.

I love the work you've done on the over all texture of the piece. Everything looks so much more real than it did before and it looked real enough in the first place. Excellent work.

Have you ever considered doing anything with H P Lovecraft's Pickman's Model? or have you already done so and I just don't remember. (Old age is a bitch :D )

I remember the ghoul. I was thinking of something more on the order of the thing in the "photograph from life" Pickman used as his model in the painting that horrified the narrator so much. I'm not sure that was a ghoul or something far worse.

Dude, you're so awesome at making such creepy artwork. Looking into those eyes gives me a weird skin-crawly feeling sjgdhasdjuhsf like it looks as if he should be dead, but you know he's not and you know he's aware of you. So creepy!

About the runes. Its nothing arcane.
Its a quote from a Shakespeare sonnet in English but using a runic font (Angerthas):

"So shalt thou feed on death that feeds on men,
and death once dead there's no more dying then."

Glad you like Old Walter.
He's not so bad provided you keep your collar turned up... ;)
