Great Pulp...But you forgot to have her eyes bulging out of her head and the droll web on his kidding. This is perfection. And the perspective..cowabunga.

Thanks! I went way "over the top" with the faces here, for sort of an old-school horror-comics look. Glad you liked it! -- The creature, on the other hand, is an idea I had recently, with lots of various shapes and textures that I think fit together disturbingly... Smile

holy sh.. what a creepy creature - i also love the expression you got on the faces - and sure your lightning is exeptional - EXCELLENT job once again!!!!

Thanks! I think a lot of color knowledge is practice, once you get the basics down. I always recommend "Color in Sketching and Rendering" by Arthur Guptill as my favorite book on the subject, but it's out of print, so you have to search for it.

Amazing work patrick, dynamic people designs and the color work on those tentacles is perfect. I truly wish I had the color knowledge you had, it's very inspiring. Also I find myself very drawn to the guy's outstretched forearm.. that's some kickin detail right there.

Yeah, Simon - she's in some real now! Thanks for the nice comments.

Thank you, Bill! I love 'em too!

Thanks, James - I try my best! Glad you like my lighting; I have fun doing that.

You're right - I hadn't thought of that! Yes indeed, happy birthday where ever you are, Howard!

What a great use of colours, and a nice sense of action too. Someone should tell that woman to look down, otherwise she'll get an ever bigger shock...

Nice one Patrick, you've definately capture that cult horror look. Love those tentacles!!

Ha another pulp masterpiece, Patrick, done in your own distinctive style! the tentacle guy is a scary looking apparition, you capture dramatic scenes stunningly well and your shadow work is the best!

...for H.P. Lovecraft's Birthday.

Thanks for the chills, Howard.

Hey, thanks, Patrick - it's amazing that I've been working on two "tentacle" games off and on for the last few months... both based in the 20's/30's Pulp era. I'm getting good at the period clothing, too! -- This probably has more of an "EC" quality than the others because I was doing just a -bit- of a Bernie Wrightson thing (esp. the cowering guy), and he was a big EC fan.

That's good stuff, Marcel - those old painted covers had a lot of mood and movement to them.. Thanks!

thanks, Varian - I had a good time making up the lighting on this one.

Thanks, Scott! I love the old black&white "horror" movies - not involved with the gross-out so much as (at their best) a creepy sense of weirdness and suspense.

This stuff is great! I really need to get this game! Nice textures in the goo. I really like the character's expressions, very EC comics.

Funny it also reminds me of old Dell Horror comic bookcovers, I love it Patrick!

Pulp at its finest with perfect "mood" lighting! Smile

Great light and shadow, excellent expressions and body language on the figures too, interesting amorphous monter also. Reminds me of the "B" monster films made back in the 50's. In fact, if this was in greyscale I'd think I was watching it on an old B&W tv! Very good Patrick!

Art at its best.
