Submission for the ArtOrder Lovecraft contest
. I went with a moonbeast from H.P. Lovecraft's The Dream Quest of Unknown Kadath
- Anatomically, the thing is like a toad/jellyfish/bird/tentacle-monster hybrid, with some of my greyhound sprinkled in there. He is so great for figuring out anatomy - thanks Stormy! :3
- Moonbeasts have no eyes, but I decided to give them tympanic membranes like frogs and toads have.
- There's a scene in the story where the creatures are paying flutes, in case you're wondering about the presence of a seemingly out of place musical instrument.
- Gross things are awesome and insanely fun to paint.
- Some detail shots
