Zoe, the Innsmouth cook by henning Zoe, the Innsmouth cook by henning
:icondonotplz::iconusemyartplz:

Painting made for the upcoming Call of Cthulhu Innsmouth Horror board game expansion.

I made this painting almost one year ago (July 2008), but it was finally announced on the FFG website today in one of their articles ( [link] ), so I can finally post it here. Wheee!

This is a painting of the art coordinator over at FFG, and I had a great time painting her.

As usual: Photoshop CS2, Wacom Intuos 2 tablet. Spent quite a bit of time on this one.

I really like it. Is the title also a play on the "Innsmouth look"?

Thanks! :) I've never heard of the Innmoutch look, so I guess it was a happy cooincidence.

The Innsmouth Look is what the people of Innsmouth tend to inherit after their parents had... Congress with the Deep Ones.

Zoe is hella scary in terms of her story to be sure but in general the art itself is moody, as many have already said. It captures the feeling of Lovecraft very well--is she holding the knife threateningly? Or is that just the point of view? Is she someone to be feared--or just a harmless cook in some very ominous surroundings?

Amazing, and creepy work. She looks rather wary that she's cooking seafood in Innsmouth, no? =P

If her looking is as terrible as the impression on her face, i'll better not try the calamari. *shudder*

Very well done!

You really gave her a cautious look with that facial expression and the optically surrounding pots (though they are behind her). Good work!

My friend and I are enjoying Arkham Horror as well. Too bad it takes up so much space when playing, haha. These expansions doesn't really help with that matter either :-P

I'm looking forward to try this explansion as well. Gotta love Innsmouth :cowboy:

Mmm, looks like she's cooking up something really delicious :D
Your painting is exquisite throughout, but what really caught my eye are the shiny metal surfaces and the frills on her apron. How did you paint the frills? Was it very patient brushwork or photo maniplulation or similar?
Very impressive painting :)
