The Night Children by SteveArgyle The Night Children by SteveArgyle
Zombies and Nazis go together like meth and shattered lives. And to add flavor, why not sprinkle a dash of Cthulian tentacle monster in there? Bake for twenty minutes on “Turbo-Creepy” and you’ve got yourself a soufflé of horror. Garnish with a gas-mask. Serve with human-skin scarecrows.

For “the Night Children.”
Copyright TOR Books.

Gas mask provided by “Who the Hell Keeps Making These things?" Nostalgia Products.

Incredibly creative image. The tentacles seem kind of overused, but something about the way you used them in the shot seems to suggest different.
I love the straw men though (assuming I'm not making a mistake by saying they're straw men, I did see that those are sticks).

Overall, an incredibly freaky image that stands out from the rest. What's there not to love about it? :D

:D This little guy is perfect! I love his posture: it really makes his tentacles and flipper-hands stand out. The little patch of bald, pale, fuzzy old-man scalp is a delightfully horrible touch.

Love the atmosphere. Very eerie and unsettling. I can practically feel that bitter wind cutting to the marrow in me bones. Makes me want to settle down with a mug of hot cocoa and a Winchester model 1897 trench shotgun.

I hope he keeps that mask on.

The most frightening things about this picture aren't the various details, but rather there purpose. Why would the creature need a gas-mask? Was this thing human once? And for what purpose are the scarecrows? Are they a warning of the creatures fate, or a lure with which to share it?

Damn the reasons, this fucker is creepy.

I'll have to write down that recipe, I have some Cthulian tentacle monster going bad somewhere, so it will be good to use it up.

Also, how very coincidental. I was just drawing a piece with a gas mask as well...
