I'd like to dedicate this piece to our recently ended Call of Cthulhu pen & paper roleplaying campaign. We kinda scewed it all up getting all tricked by Nyarlathotep! That bastard old God fooled the party through a portal and they got all thrown back to ancient Egypt, except me who barely manage to jump back out before it closed behind me. Actually the others got off better than me as the world kinda ended shortly after this and I was still stuck in 1929. Oh well, it was fun for as long as it lasted.
This scene is not really from that session at all, but It' inspired by the setting and the monsters you can find in this setting. The dude on the picture is referenced from a photo I shot of a childhood friend of mine. I think he looks cool on the picture, giving it all even though he doesn't really stand a chance against mr. tentacle
Painted during quite a few evenings using Photoshop with a Wacom tablet. Reference used for the character.
