ArtOrder sketch for H.P. Lovecraft Challenge

A new ArtOrder challenge. This one involves creating an image of a non-humanoid creature from the literature of H.P. Lovecraft. I choose Wilbur Whateley’s twin brother from the Dunwich Horror.

“Bigger’n a barn…all made o’ squirmin’ ropes…hull thing sort o’ shaped like a hen’s egg bigger’n anything with dozens o’ legs like hogsheads that haff shut up when they step…nothin’ solid abaout it-all like jelly, an made o’ sep’rit wrigglin’ ropes pushed clost together…great bulgin’ eyes all over it…ten or twenty maouths or trunks a-stickin’ aout all along the sides, big as stove-pipes, an all a-tossin an’ openin’ an’ shutten…all grey, with kinder blue or purple rings… an’ Gawd in Heaven- that haff face on top!…”
“Oh, oh, my Gawd, that haff face- that haff face on top of it…that face with the red eyes an’ crinkly albino hair, an’ no chin, like the Whateleys…. It was a octopus, centipede, spider kind o’ thing, but they was a haff-shaped man’s face on top of it…”
H.P. Lovecraft, The Dunwich Horror
