@advarsky: ph’nglui mglw’nafh Cthulhu R’lyeh wgah’nagl fhtagn! :wink:


don’t know why i associated the name with a fish
was pretty tired when i finally was about to draw the fish itself so it got a bit sloppy

photshop, 50mn


55min, Photoshop

Just what kinda came to mind at the time.

Hassefort, thanx mate. struggling with nature right now and i’m trying to use it as much as possible so i really appreciate the comment. that’s one bloody knight you have there. nice :slight_smile:

horheCG, very mystical piece. somehow i’m associating it with LOTR, when frodo puts on the ring and see the knights :slight_smile:

gingerbreadman, very funny idea :slight_smile:

too tired to comment all but very nice entries guys


@jawine - fantastic sketch…love the old chess pieces and the mood you have created. I straight away thought chess too but got distracted:) This could be a visual representation of a Sicilian opening where black can capture a pawn in the middle with his (red) knight on d5…no?

Mostly playing with the airbrush.
