Some of you may have seen this painting already, I posted a version of it earlier in the year. I was never happy with it, and based on the feedback the opinion was that too much detail was lost in shadow. So, I have finally gotten around to fixing painting, and I wanted to share it here. In my opinion it is a big improvement on the original, so thanks to all of you that pointed out the problems last time. Hope you like it (and can actually see it this time around.)
The painting is my take on H.P Lovecraft's Dagon.
Happy new year.

you dance nicely...
Thats better! The skin textures and shades are phenominal.
I'm still not sure how much that stone cock is helping the composition though
I remember stumbling on this post before you re touched it. Must say you have put a lot of hard work in. Really captures the essence of Lovecraft's Dagon. Makes me want to reread the story again.
keep it up ill be looking out for more of your work
have a good one
sketchbook updated October 6th
Hi, thank's very much for the comments guys. Pavel, thanks a lot, I tried to push the rendering on this one, which was fun / mind numbing. As for the stone cock, yeah, perhaps it makes the composition a little a bit stiff (pun intended).
OmertA, thanks. Yep, quite a bit of work, and although it's full of mistakes and things I'd want to change, I learned a lot from doing it and I'm relatively happy with how it turned out.
