Azathoth
Another illustration for Call of Cthulhu. This one shows Azathoth himself, the greatest and most terrible of all the gods of H.P. Lovecraft's stories, so I wanted to do something really scary with lots of tentacles and stuff. Hope it worked somehow to do Azathoth at least a little justice.

See the finished card here:



An in-depth painting tutorial of my Azathoth piece appears in Martin McKenna’s Digital Horror Painting Workshop



Thanks to Fantasy Flight Games (owners of the copyright of most of the pieces appearing in the book) allowing me to give some pieces to Martin for inclusion in the book.

And here’s what the publisher has to say about the book:
Horror imagery has appeared in many and varied forms throughout its long tradition, from the whimsical American Gothic of Charles Addams to the erotic, biomechanical nightmares of HR Giger. Now, with the latest digital applications, artists are able to realize nightmare visions that are more realistic and more terrifying than ever.

Digital Horror Painting Workshop demonstrates how to use these latest digital techniques to create artwork in a wide variety of horror styles. It employs detailed step-by-step tutorials, analysis of spectacular finished paintings, fascinating work-in-progress drawings and sketchbook pages from leading artists working at the forefront of illustration, comic book art, and computer game and movie production design. Each section offers a guide to the creative process, from inspiration and initial sketches to fully rendered horror scenes.

Digital Horror Painting Workshop is a must-have for anyone wanting to create evocative horror paintings – or for anyone who delights in the frisson of fear evoked by supernatural imagery at its very best.
