My latest artwork done for Stygian Fox’s ‘New Tales of the Miskatonic Valley‘ for the Call of Cthulhu RPG, featuring an aerial view of H. P. Lovecraft’s fictional city of Arkham, Massachussets.
For the creation of this I used Michele Botticelli‘s ‘City of Arkham’ 3D buildings pack among other things. Rendered and post-processed. More images coming soon.
Full size: 4000x2400px. Mixed techinque – render and matte painting.
This digital art piece was inspired by a short story from Thomas Ligotti’s ‘Teatro Grottesco‘. The name of the story is ‘His Shadow Shall Rise to a Higher House’ and it’s the first part of a trilogy called ‘In a Foreign Town, In a Foreign Land’.
Techniques used: 3D render + post production. Full size: 4082×3186
Although the story is pretty grim and sickening, it contains some vivid descriptions of the urban landscape of the unnamed northern border town which I found beautiful. (more…)
There’s an interesting story behind this painting. I’ve been subscribed to a YouTube channel called ‘Atmospheric Black Metal’ for a while when this album, ‘Todbringer’ by Ellende came out.
I remember listening to it and admiring the artwork, then totally forgot about it for more than a year until one day I accidentally saw a flash of the cover somewhere on the internet. I could not remember its name nor the name of the artist so I went back to the YouTube channel and browsed through the huge collection of albums until I finally found it.
The original image was painted by Lukas, the talented musician himself.
