LOVECRAFT by Hartman by sideshowmonkey LOVECRAFT by Hartman by sideshowmonkey
I think this piece was inspired by my latest poll question.

H.P. Lovecraft is one of my favorite writers and his works have been a big influence on me. I'm surprised it has taken me this long to get around to doing a piece in his honor, but now I finally have. This piece features a bunch of monsters influenced by his writings, in particualr...

Cthulhu, the Deep ones, Chthonians, Gugs, Moon-Beasts, Zoth-Ommog, the Great old ones and the Necronomicon!

I feel like such an idiot. Like MariaMjolnir, I haven't gotten a chance to read any of his books, though they sound like the perfect match for me, but until now I didn't know that the Necrinomicon was one of his creations. I've always associated him with Cthulu and the great old ones.

Where is Zoth-Ommog from? I dont believe

Zoth_Ommog is not technically one of Lovecraft's direct creations. It is one of the sons of Cthulhu and is part of the Cthulhu mythos but was created by August Derleth, one of the many writers who continued on Lovecraft's ideas.
