H. P. Lovecraft
Deleted my previous HPL portrait. It was horrible! Started in watercolor on yupo, and finished in ArtRage and PS5.

The Dunwich Horror (work-in-progress)
It's not my favorite Lovecraft story but it's certainly got it's creepy moments. I might have to take my time on this one. If it works out maybe I'll try to do a Lovecraft series.
UPDATE: And here's what a little shading in ArtRage can do for a drawing. Still gobs more to be done with it, though...
Playing with color already....

Happy Halloween 2014!
If only Halloween could fall on a Friday every year!
Here's my last jack of the year. Bit of a rush job, as usual. I always tell myself I'll carve more jacks the next year but never seem to. This year I had some somewhat higher quality (if smallish) pumpkins to work with, but results were mixed.
Have a fun Halloween!

The Emma Crawford 2014 Coffin Races
Return with me now to the hauntingly haunted streets of Manitou Springs, Colorado for the 20th Annual Emma Crawford Coffin Races. And was it a good one this year. Perfect weather. Perfect.
Oh god, look at the crowd. There was an expected attendance of 12,000 or more. When I left (which was, admittedly, before the actual races got underway) there were cars stretched out for miles still trying to get in.
The event itself had over 70 entries. And never has the race had so many great costumes and elaborate race coffins.
There is always a pirate team. Sorry I don't know more about the various clubs and businesses that compose the races. This could be a law firm for all I know, the scurvy dogs. R!
These are the Veterans of the Al Packer Wars, or something. Whatever, it's just good to see Uncle Al represented. The coffin rider (Emma Crawford) was a little kid in a stew pot.
Figured these guys would be cranking "Flight of the Valkyries" but nope.
These folks were very sporting. They're zom-bees. Get it?
LOL! DO U EVEN LIFT, BRO?
ONE OF US, ONE OF US! GOOBLE GOBBLE GOOBLE GOBBLE!
The Road Warrior/Beyond Thunderdome team might have been the most epic. But it's hard to get a picture of people when you are being crushed up against them. This is only like a third of the team.
I wish I could have gotten pictures of just one percent of the costumes. At this rate, the Emma Crawford Festival is destined be a contender for the greatest Halloween event in the country.
Yep. Coffin Races. Pretty much.
I tried to take a selfie and the sun exploded. I hate when that happens....
Manitou Springs, the Halloween Capitol of the Rockies.
There are many great pictures of the festivities at the Emma Crawford Coffin Races Facebook.

The Mysterious Ruins Part 2
What is this place?
This eroding necropolis festooned with battered walls and pillars and structures that seem to defy functional interrelation. The graffitied wreckage of some sort of industrial goliath.
Local youth have always been strangely drawn to it. One day, a fence was put up around the whole thing. But before long several holes had been cut through in strategic locations. Rather than prohibiting the derelict invaders, it became a barrier against intervening authorities.
Don't try to explore the flooded tunnels. I hear someone drowned down there.
Where does that water even come from? It shouldn't be there.
(to be continued)
