Beauties of Arkham

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

The thought suddenly struck me that I had never done a picture featuring even the tiniest tentacled monster (as seen in the classic horror literature and in your nightmares).  I had to make amends for that, so here you go.Not having drawn tentacles before, I first looked through a handful of photos of squids taken at different distances and angles. That helped a lot in getting the picture, hm, anatomically correct, for want of a more apt phrase. (Funny fact: Most of the reference material came from cooking illustrations, but perhaps that is better not thought of in the present context  ...).  Thanks to the lovely Louise Lindgren, who formerly had her own brilliant gallery in Elfwood, a coloured version of this picture can also be found right here.
