H.P. Lovecraft's Elder Things by LostonWallace H.P. Lovecraft's Elder Things by LostonWallace
This is my take on the "Elder Things", described by H.P. Lovecraft in AT THE MOUNTAINS OF MADNESS. I followed Lovecraft's description as closely, but took some liberty with the colors. Hope you enjoy this strange horror from beyond the stars.s

Definitely an improvement on the colors; I remember he described parts as being green and I found it silly in conjunction with the other colors.

wow, I just got a shiver seeing this. They look so...inhuman. There's nothing you can compare them to.

Very good rendering of his description too. Very true to the story.
