A five colour portrait of the avatar of Hastur.  The palette is suitably ill.

I Like it, it looks suitably eldritch.

a so beautiful work with only 5 colors...just awesome

Do some investigating on your own.  Esoteric knowledge is more fun if you discover it alone.

The colors are terrific, and it's alway nice to see Mythos art.

awesome piece. but could somebody clue me in too the whole, king in yellow, yellow sign thing?

Lackey (Level 4 Ensign) @ 10/2/2006 16:36
Yes.  It's just above his head.

Have you seen the yellow sign?

I love the lighting, it reminds me of a baroque painting or something.

Good character, you managed to suggest lots of details with just a few colours and a few pixels. Didn't you forget to antialias the inside edge of the hood though?

Larwick (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 9/30/2006 17:19
That palette is awesome. I don't care much for the background, but the character is extremely well done. I find it a little odd how his farthest shoulder sticks out so much though.

Great! A Cthulhu Mythos art.
