BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! HALLOWEEN IS COMING!

You may have read of Dracula, Werewolves, and Frankenstein; Jekyll & Hyde; awe-inspiring angels and terrible demons;
an ill-famed creature like Medusa, or a multitude of other fabled characters.
 
It's time for the spooky side of bed-time stories written by the likes of H.P Lovecraft, Edgar Allen Poe,
Stoker, Shelley, Grimm, Bronte, and others across the ages.

For our celebration of Halloween this year:

Your challenge for this month is to make a PORTRAIT GALLERY of Literary 'Monsters'.
Show us something about them and their nature in a PORTRAIT.

All of you who put in your entries will contribute to this Gallery of Rogues, Monsters and Terrors.
   

       ** Mention the book, story and author.

Even The Colour Out of Space and Dreaded Azathoth can have a portrait, if you can figure out how to do it :winks: :tearlaugh:

There is a FULL description of the rules on Page 8 of this thread if you want one.

With all those tentacles, could Kianna be related to Azathoth?

Lord, let's hope not for K's sake - well ours, really. I see what you're saying, M-C but Azathoth is highly unstable and insane you know :omg:

I know very little at about this.  All I know this entity is in space and heard he is a lower god in a polytheism system.  I guess it is time to look up more about this subject.

Far from that! Azathoth is the Ruler of the Outer Gods. He is the Crawling Chaos! - essentially an abstraction of Universal Chaos. It does what It will, when It will, as It will. And all the time, It's trilling that terrible insane piping music. He moves in mysterious, often insane ways to work his 'art' which is no art, but constant destruction, re-arrangement and Un-order.

Sorry, but he's about my second-favorite Lovecraft character. Lovecraft has such an array of monsters and monstrosities that are fabulous. Many ARE very abstract beings that describe how HPL dreamed the world and the Universe. He's got some that are 'almost' human but lack something in that department. At least they did in Howard's eyes. I've firmly believed for years that Nyarlathotep is based on Nikola Tesla. At least he was at first.

I thought it would be a fun chance to dredge up some of our old favorites from books when we were younger and try to picture them now in our older years.

Lol...That's serious! :tearlaugh: I have been there, but not because of HPL. I can see where he was coming from. Went to Newburyport, which is an old sailing town full of big old houses built by ship-wrights, with widows' walks on the roofs, etc. Underneath, everything is so old and full of tales from yore.
