Black Seas of Infinity

Following the Champion’s Portion and Expect the First Ghost, the third story I decided to play around with to create an illustration is HP Lovecraft’s The Call of Cthulhu, but as with both previous attempts I have found it almost impossible to visualise imagery for it.

I thought the lovely high contrast, low-fi quality of charcoal might help communicate some of the darkness of the story and after giving up on thumbnail sketches which weren’t going anywhere I did a quick interpretation of mighty Cthulhu. Unfortunately looks a bit like an old man of the sea.
