The Obelisk by JJcanvas The Obelisk by JJcanvas
A little experimental sketch!

It's different but I hope you like it :)
All done in photoshop by painting everything in black and white, and then putting the layer in multiply on top of an old scroll texture I found on google!

Cheers!

On which note, the scroll texture layer seems to have done its job well, adds a flavor of timeless antiquity to the image.

Amazing work with value! And funny thing, I was just discussing H.P. Lovecraft's "Dagon" with someone mere hours ago. Coincidence?

Lovecraft may have been a shit person but his stories have a way of making you feel tiny

Indeed! I was just watching a documentary about him the other day and it's always sad when you find out that a person who makes work that you really like (I love his creation of Cosmic Horror) isn't a good human being. I do think that some of his racist and xenophobic ideas come from his education and time, but I still feel like it's no excuse, specially for someone who seems like a smart person who could think on his own.

Especially since he ended up marrying a Jewish woman. He was rather paradoxical a lot of the time.

nice work btw ! makes me think about the "dragonborn" dlc in skyrim (which is highly inspired by Lovecraft and the hallucinated mountains I believe)

I was quite surprised too and while I don't deny his reponsability in what he was, I think he would have been a different man if he had a better life, he was very sick and quite unlucky I think so he began growing a powerful hatred towards those who were different. Hey at least he didn't do anything wrong unlike that other dude in the 40s.......

I've only read The Mountains of Madness, but I did some sort of passage from lovecraft about an obelisk in some lake, which was the inspiration for this. Not sure if that's the book you are talking about, but the whole image is definitely inspired by lovecraftian horror :)

That's definitely the short story Dagon by H.P. Lovecraft. It's the only story by him that features it.
