My depiction of the indescribable color found in HP Lovecraft's "The Colour out of Space".

Referenced Deciever's pic as a starting point for the color palette, and Jonata-D's Brick Texture for the, well, brick texture.

@JerryPie Yeah, i noticed that perspective problem way too late into the picture lol, but thank you very much for the kind words!

@pyrometal I noticed the challenge a while back, and looked at the submissions before starting the piece for some inspiration. Thank you for the compliments :)

We had a Colour out of Space weekly challenge some time ago that you totally missed out on!

You would have taken first place for sure

Man this is really great work. I wish the well was angled a bit more toward the camera so you could  see the opening. But that's just a tiny nit pick.

The colors work so well together, and the whimsical design of the light beam makes this one of my all time favorites.
