Illustration - Dagon Concepts
These are some concepts for the H.G. Lovecraft short story Dagon that I'm illustrating. Lovecraft was pretty specific with his descriptions of the creatures in his stories so it is difficult trying to create exactly what he described while still creating something unique. I thought at first maybe I shouldn't actually show the creature and instead have just the protagonist's terrified expressions but it was too much fun to resist drawing these gnarly creatures.
The image at the very top is actually a reference to a series of dreams I had for a while where the ocean kept consuming me. I thought it was pretty fitting for the theme of this story.
