|Cthulhu staring down an Elder Thing-thingy in a sort of homage to those old boxing fight posters that I grew up around (hence the title, an homage to the old Ali fight-style taglines, like "The Rumble in the Jungle" and such)... A viewer on the HP Lovecraft Historical Society Facebook Group page pointed out the yin-yang quality of the image, which I have to admit was completely unintentional, but definite none the less. |
I've mentioned before that Lovecraft creatures are challenging for many reasons, but it has been nice hearing such nice comments about my interpretations of these beloved minions of madness.
This never was intended to be anything more than a sketch/doodle at first to try out the new pencils I picked up, but it quickly took on a life of its own and I kept adding more.
Done with .005 and .007 mechanical pencil entirely, putting a test run on my new Uni Kuru Toga pencils. For those who are interested: Quite happy with them. Inexpensive, nice grip feel and I have to say: as advertised, broke lead tips far less often with the design, which turns and flexes the tips enough to reduce the strain that causes breaks.
