The Rats In The Wall - Hp. Lovecraft by KxG-WitcheR The Rats In The Wall - Hp. Lovecraft by KxG-WitcheR
“My searchlight expired, but still I ran. I heard voices, and yowls, and echoes, but above all there gently rose that impious, insidious scurrying, gently rising, rising as a stiff bloated corpse gently rises above an oily river that flowsunder endless onyx bridges to a black putrid sea. Something bumped into me - something soft and plump. It must have been the rats; the viscous, gelatinous, ravenous army that feast on the dead and the living...” - The Rats In The Walls - H.P Lovecraft 1923

As part of my thesis 'Illustrating Literary Works' It would be very awesome if you guys could provide me with some feed back as to what you think about the illustration and if have indeed managed to capture the feel and environment of the story... also any suggestions and constructive criticism is very welcome :) thanks!

I think you did well to create a creepy atmosphere- I especially like the greenish mist against the red blood in the water. There are all sorts of shadowy horrors hiding just beyond in the mist... :-O And the dripping and the flies are a nice touch to make it a vile place. I think a lot of times people forget that such foul places should attract a veritable pestilence of flies. Only suggestion I have is that I think the skulls should get smaller, even tiny, more quickly the further away they are- it'll allow you to add more mounds of them so the body count would look even more numerous and horrifying :heart: Though that would probably be a pain to actually paint, even if you use copy + paste for some of them. :dead:

"No, no, I tell you, I am not that Daemon Swineherd in the twilit grotto!" :D

'Daemon Swineherd' has to be one of the best word combinations ever.

Love the atmosphere you've captured, it's genuinely dank and haunting.
