Dagon by ~Zuccarello. "It shows a wonderful variety of textures and contrasts and the notion of a mighty, creepy creature that Lovecraft is famous for." ( Suggested by Amarie-Veneanar and Featured by aunjuli )

Love the design of the monolith and the overall 'sharkyness' of Dagon's face. Good to see somebody do justice to Lovecraft's works once for a while!

Why is Dagon hugging that statue? In almost every rendition of it, he's holding some kind of obelisk.

Wow, this is some of the best use of ink I've seen in a while. It really brings this picture out. Where a lot of people color, I think the black and white was so necessary on this one... it's wonderful, powerful and imposing. Your inking is inspiring.

Gratz on the DD!

Very cool :) Faving this so maybe I can get some ideas for my own inking. I'm trying to do a page in my manga in Sin City/Frank Miller black and white silhoette style. I see you're doing alittle of the black and white silouette style in your mountains there and etched ink lines in the sky :) I use alot of etch ink shading in my graphic novel too :) Makes a nice gradient effect when you crosshatch the right way :) Keep up the amazing work! I'm gonna be watching you too! lol

Also from pre-hebrew philistine area of the middle east, and into Babylon.

I love the use of lights and darks- the solid areas and then the details
