"Then suddenly I saw it. With only a slight churning to mark its rise to the surface, the thing slid into view above the dark waters. Vast, Polyphemus-like, and loathsome, it darted like a stupendous monster of nightmares to the monolith, about which it flung its gigantic scaly arms, the while it bowed its hideous head and gave vent to certain measured sounds. I think I went mad then."

- H.P. Lovecraft, "DAGON"

Done in inks; inspired by the inked art of Gary Gianni, as well as that of Bernie Wrightson, the soundtrack to John Carpenter's "THE THING", and of course ... the story from HP Lovecraft.

Excellent work! Glad to see someone giving Dagon some love, too. All you hear about usually is Cthulhu this and Cthulhu that.

Agreed. All of the Outer Gods and Great Old Ones deserve our appreciation.

I will post more, no worries. Need to start working on it again. The best recipe for that is of course to read more Lovecraft all over again.
