    Hastur - The King In Yellow

    I did this for a friends' book. It's an Old One from the Call of Cthulhu RPG.

    This looks great as a thumbnail, but the tentacles could use some work. They need to be rendered out more. Also I'm not really buying that the material there is some kind of cloth. It folds correctly, but it's texture looks like clay. You could also try to circulate your colors a bit better so it's not just big blocks of yellow and green.
    Nice concept though!

    Thanks for the crits. I agree on the cloth-texture, but I'm a bit in the dark about rectifying it. And I totally agree on the color-circulation thing as well. I know that it looks very separated.. do you have a good way of making it come more together?

    I agree with what everyone else said, and I feel that your image seems a little bit static. I did a quick paintover in Painter X to show how adding dynamic lighting with more contrast can really increase the drama of the image. I smoothed out the cloth to give it a more fabric look, too.

    I brought it into Painter X and used a bunch of Overlay, Gel and Colorize layers to play with the light. I'm sure those layers are in Photoshop as well, but they have different names. I can't remember what Adobe calls them though. (I think the Gel layer in Painter is the Multiply layer in Photoshop, but I'm not 100% sure.)
