The Moth
Recently purchased Sketchbook Pro, this is my first at using it to paint something. Inspired by Montress, Taboo and The Witcher :)
Ghost Bird
“Where lies the strangling fruit that came from the hand of the sinner I shall bring forth the seeds of the dead
to share with the worms that gather in the darkness and surround the world with the power of their lives while
from the dimlit halls of other places forms that never were and never could be writhe for the impatience of the
few who never saw what could have been. In the black water with the sun shining at midnight, those fruit shall 
come ripe and in the darkness of that which is golden shall split open to reveal the revelation of the fatal softness
in the earth. The shadows of the abyss are like the petals of a monstrous flower that shall blossom within the skull
and expand the mind beyond what any man can bear, but whether it decays under the earth or above on green fields, or
out to sea or in the very air, all shall come to revelation, and to revel, in the knowledge of the strangling fruit
—and the hand of the sinner shall rejoice, for there is no sin in shadow or in light that the seeds of the dead cannot forgive.
And there shall be in the planting in the shadows a grace and a mercy from which shall blossom dark flowers, 
and their teeth shall devour and sustain and herald the passing of an age. That which dies shall still know life in
death for all that decays is not forgotten and reanimated it shall walk the world in the bliss of not-knowing. 
And then there shall be a fire that knows the naming of you, and in the presence of the strangling fruit, its dark 
flame shall acquire every part of you that remains.” - Annihilation, Jeff Vandermeer

My subscription to Photoshop expired halfway through this painting, currently testing out a demo-version of ArtRage, hence the watermark :P

Journal Entry: Fri Oct 3, 2014, 1:55 AM

slump! I haven't drawn or painted or written anything in ages! All my time is sucked into this black hole called life, and the internetz. God, I waste a lot of time on imgur and facebook...I should quit it.

I'm also in the process of moving to a new house, so all my things are scattered all over the place, and there are workers seemingly 24/7 in hourse, refurbishing and stuff. Just a few more weeks...I hope.

In the meantime I have a blog where I post old stuff and're welcome to check it out :P…

  • Listening to: The Monster - Eminem
  • Reading: Snow Crash
  • Watching: Season 3 of New Girl
  • Playing: Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel
  • Eating: Carrots

Wow cool gallery! It's awesome to see how someone else visualizes the characters, scenes and creatures depicted in Steven Erikson's works. Your Y'Ghatan burning picture was basically how I imagined it to look. :)
