Here is my August portrait, the late great H.P. Lovecraft. Speaking of late, I was a day late on this, I blame Batman: Arkham Asylum for the XBOX 360. At any rate, this is from a photo I found on the net. If you've ever seen a monster with tentacles, blame this guy. 9X12 watercolor paper and felt tip technical pen.
Virgil Findlay did not inspire this but after reading your comment I checked out his work and I highly recommend it
Virgil Finlay was probably what inspired this.
