The Beast by Vindrea The Beast by Vindrea
"With a jerk, the white body rolled over so that its face was turned in our direction. For a moment I was so struck with horror at the eyes thus revealed that I noted nothing else. They were black, those eyes, deep, jetty black, in hideous contrast to the snow-white hair and flesh. Like those of other cave denizens, they were deeply sunken in their orbits, and were entirely destitute of iris."

"The Beast in the Cave" by H.P.Lovecraft

i imagined it with a tad yellower teeth, smaller nose and squinter eyes.

But this is quite disturbing. Kudos.

Haunting... Though, I don't feel any evilness in these eyes...
Great work.

Ah, his eyes! So exciting. I am a big fan of Lovecraft and reread his "The Beast in the Cave" just a month ago and it's so nicely to see a good illustration.

You are back!!!!

Well done, and I will have to agree the eyes look so human, like the eyes of a baby. Its weird because it starts creepy but ends up cute. I love the brush stroke as well, its so unique and makes it jump out of the background color. Great job.

OT: Velve I am getting a dog, cocker spaniel gold..... lol he is so cute. I have bough him but wont have him till in 1,5 week cause we will leave for a long tip during easter and dont want to take him with me as he is only 3 month old. I will upload photos just for you cause I know you love animals as much as I do.

Once more great to have you back, please upload more art!!!! I love it.

and oh my, a puppy! and he's cocker spaniel, they are extremely cute! I remember my neighbor had one when I was a child, they are very beautiful dogs, with wavy hair and ears :aww: I'm so happy for you :)
and yes please, upload more photos! by the way, have you named him already?

well I will when i get him in my hands. But he and I should wait for 10 days for our final union. I am about to go to a long trip and I can get him with me as he is only 3 months old. But after that , I promise I will even upload video. I am extremely exciting to have my own dog.

Yeah his hair is like silk. He is very beatiful.

His name is going to be "Ermis" , the messenger/seeker ancient greek god , the most clever god too, and the fastest of all with his winged sandals. I think those traits go hand in hand with this dog, and I like this name.

isties istorijoje jis minimas kaip pabaisa, siaubingai isgazdinusi pagrindini veikeja, kuris susidure su juo visiskoje olos tamsoje. pabaigoje veikejui pavyksta pamatyti pabaisos veida, kuri apsviecia blanki ugnies sviesa, ir visas siaubas yra jo juodose akyse, ir fakte, kad tai yra kazkada buves zmogus... idomu kad visiems akys asocijuojasi su gerumu ar liudnumu, nes as bandziau jas pavaizduoti kraupias, nors isties sirdyje man buvo gaila tos pabaisos, atrode lyg per klaida jam teko tokia dalia, ir kad jame dar liko siektiek zmogiskumo... Matyt visdelto pastarieji jausmai atsispindi darbe :D
