Cthulhutech - Ancient Enemies

Hey guys, looks like Cthulhutech: Ancient Enemies came out recently, which means I'm good to share the image below. I've worked on Cthulhutech before, and again had the pleasure of working with Mike Vaillancourt.

I did this image almost two years ago, and after not looking at it for so long there are several things that jump out at me. For starters, I know that if I did this same image today, I would be MUCH more thorough with the architecture's design and rendering, and would have eased up on some of the photoshopped textures. I'm not so sure about the perspective either. The colors, however, I'm still pretty happy with. Cthulhutech always brings out my neon side.

I was 50/50 on whether to share this here, since I feel like I've grown substantially since this piece. I decided to share it because hey, SOMEBODY might get a kick out of it.

Keep an eye out, because I've got a new piece right around the corner. It's so close to being finished I can TASTE it!

Well, I get a kick out of it. Requisite monsters notwithstanding, it's refreshing to see a Cthulhu-themed scene where characters are having a conversation.

I imagine they are heatedly debating how to appropriately dress for the weather.

In related news, this amuses me.

Thanks Greg. Actually, that picture you shared isn't too far from the initiation rites they make you go through before you can work on Cthulhutech. The visions get less frequent, but they never stop...
