Wow this looks amazing. Love the effects of the light in here so much, the dark
atmosphere gives me some real good shivers.I can feel the desperation of the
person in this pic.

That's some amazing art. I would like to invite you to a project. It's name is DIM. A game where you fight monsters in order to save the world, including a completely different rule set than what anyone has ever seen. Would you like to help and continue this project?

Your entire gallery is incredible! I especially love this piece due to the insane amount of atmosphere and drama. That sun ray you painting is spot-on and I love the way the light glints brighter off the surfaces it touches. Keep up the amazing work! :3

Goomi depicted the hounds as the pets of Cthulhu ,and dwelling in a doghouse seemingly designed by Escher, judging by its incredible angles.

Due to the loss of certain lore and because the Hounds have allies, it may be hopeless to try to defeat them if you were so foolish or unlucky or mad enough to invoke them...

Wow lol It's incredible. I like how most artists have to put their own spin on the hounds' design because no one in the stories ever lives long enough to give a description

I guess this guy left his star of Mnar home and has no Tindalosbits to give them.
