Nightgaunt by Eclectixx Nightgaunt by Eclectixx
The second completed piece for my Lovecraft bestiary; the Nightgaunt.

“Shocking and uncouth black beings with smooth, oily, whale-like surfaces, unpleasant horns that curved inward toward each other, bat-wings whose beating made no sound, ugly prehensile paws, and barbed tails that lashed needlessly and disquietingly. And worst of all, they never spoke or laughed, and never smiled because they had no faces at all to smile with, but only a suggestive blankness where a face ought to be. All they ever did was clutch and fly and tickle; that was the way of night-gaunts.”
—H. P. Lovecraft, The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath

Elmo in his most fevered nightmares, dreams of these creatures.
That is why they do not let him eat and go right to bed.
His screams would be heard throughout the street if they did.

Looks great.

This is also adorable! I don't know too much about lovecraft myself, but I gotta say that it's either he thought of the most adorable things, or you must happen to draw them in the most adorable way.

I think I want one as a pet. It doesn't look like it eats anything. Maybe it eats souls.
