HP Lovecraft: Nyarlathotep by TJ-Ryan HP Lovecraft: Nyarlathotep by TJ-Ryan
HP Lovecraft's Nyarlathotep. This illustration was for a monthly Gnomon competition titled 'HP Lovecraft.'

I thought I'd make the Nyarlathotep a huge, colossal entity who some archeologists have unfortunately stumbled across.

Illustration was done in Adobe Photoshop.

Pure lovecraftian horror at its best! 
Truly outstanding work. This huge animal looks so gorgeous.

I am working on a short 3d animated film inspired by H.P.Lovecraft tales (for 2.5 years already and looking to finalize it in a year or so)
Can only wish that I would stumbled upon your image maybe three years earlier! Maybe it would be put as a basis for brainstorming whole project's aesthetics.
Can't change the course now since too much efforts gone already. It is my goal to pursue creation of a quality 3D horror/supernatural animations with my skills whenever time resources allow me to do that, and hooooly cow and shit - how I would wish to turn whole this image into animated sequence on its own!

I salute to you!

Hey Pumais,

Thank you so much for kind words, much appreciated.

I'd love to see your finished project in the not to distant future.

I'm looking to start concentrating on more Lovecraft concepts soon and if you ever want any pre-visuals heading your way then don't hesitate to ask.

Best regards,
TJ

Hi Kellpye, you're very welcome!

My apologies; I'm hoping to do a few more Lovecraft creature illustrations (especially of Nyarlathotep) I haven't done none in a long time.

Many thanks,

TJ

Man, cultists are dumb as hell. They don't know anything about summoning a ravening god from outer space. Good drawing though!

Yeah... This could easily be one of his many forms.
One which, apparently, those poor saps just released.

Oh, it isn't a virgin maiden we are sacrificing. It's you. :iconsteinrapefaceplz:

Really?
Because I'd have thought the Crawling Chaos would've much preferred a virgin maiden - You know how hard it is to find one of those these days? If it's rarer, it's more valuable, and I'm sure you don't want to invoke a mask of Nyarlathotep without a decent sacrifice - Peeving off the servitor of the outer gods is probably not a smart move.

And besides, we've only just finished the temple - If the great one smites it now the brotherhood will have wasted like, their whole Summer or something. Maybe we could like, I dunno, raid a convent and steal a couple of nuns. This particular mask is the one with the thing for nuns, right?

If "The Haunter of the Dark" is to be believed, anyone will do. The Crawling Chaos is an equal-opportunity devourer.
