-The Old Ones Shall Be- by arvalis -The Old Ones Shall Be- by arvalis
"The Old Ones were, the Old Ones are, and the Old Ones shall be." - "The Dunwich Horror"

Seemed like a fitting quote from H.P. Lovecraft. More advanced perspective homework. There technically is an easter egg here, but its not really hidden; H.P. Lovecraft is in the picture. Tried to do something more speedy than normal this time, hope you like it.

Old Italian guy?  You mean HP Lovecraft?

Ha, no.  I meant some stereotype from New York who is so jaded that this sort of event doesn't bother him.  He's not in the picture, he's a slightly balding, fat guy in a wife beater standing off to the side.

I think Lovecraft would have thrown himself into the ocean if he discovered one day that he was Italian, given his awful 1920's racism.

Very nice! I like your Cthulhu, the fact that he's mostly silhouette. Keeps him mysterious. Nice touch adding in HP as well.

That is absolutely sick, twisted, horrifying, and demented. I love it. Your art style is amazing, very few other artists capture the disturbing otherworldly feel that really defines HP Lovecraft the way you did.

I love how the two people except for Lovecraft are reacting in horror to the site of seeing Cthulhu. Lovecraft: "Look Robin, its Cthulhu! QUICK, to the Eldritch cave!!!!"

What's really funny is nothing that big could stand upright on Earth due to Earth's gravity. But I guess it's something only a Great Old One can due (due to, you know, it's Old Oneness and all that jazz). That and Godzilla. ^_~

I don't know if anyone else has pointed this out already, but there is a significant difference between the Old Ones and the Elder Gods. The Old Ones were the first inhabitants of earth, and constructed monumental cities both above and below the water. When the Elder Gods descended upon the earth from their unknown home, they waged a massive war against the Old Ones, eventually pushing the Old Ones off of the surface of the earth and down to their underwater sanctuaries, at which point, a truce was made. Ramble ramble ramble, none of this is really important, so yeah. Ignore me.
