Ghast by Eclectixx Ghast by Eclectixx
"After a moment something about the size of a small horse hopped out into the grey twilight, and Carter turned sick at the aspect of that scabrous and unwholesome beast, whose face is so curiously human despite the absence of a nose, a forehead, and other important particulars." "...the ghasts, those repulsive beings which die in the light, and which live in the vaults of Zin and leap on long hind legs like kangaroos."
H.P. Lovecraft, Dream-Quest Of Unknown Kadath

For my Lovecraft Bestiary project: [link]

Yes, it was primarily done in Mypaint with some work done in GIMP.

Okay. Thanks for replying :)

Is cost or preference for opensource the reason for your choice?

It's sort of both. When I first started doing digital painting, I had a laptop that just didn't run Photoshop or Adobe very well- it simply didn't have the processing power. I found that GIMP and Mypaint worked just fine on it, though. Now that I have a much more powerful computer, I have gotten used to Mypaint and GIMP and actually prefer a lot of the features they offer. I also love the idea of open-source software and the communities that form around them, improving them and making them more powerful and flexible. I will probably start doing more in PS if only because the industry expects a certain familiarity with it, but the brush dynamics leave something to be desired IMO.

Creepy but wonderful detail. it looks like a genuine creature. I always wondered what a creature without a forehead looked like. Nailed it!
