    Mountains Of Madness Concept Art

    Hi, here are some concept art i did for Mountains of Madness, long story why i even did them, but well just take it as fan art..

    Alright so let's move on. I actually spent alot of time doing all these, experimenting with geometrical impossiblities, non-euclidean shapes, hopefully
    to create something worthy of Lovecraft's writings. I learnt alot from it, understanding how non-euclidean structures are really tricky and might not be able to work in reality.

    Many of the concepts probably have got this weird geometrical feel to them.. feel free to share your thoughts. Thank you everyone.




    1.Inner part of the city where the masonry and perspectives are warped, ilogical and madness.


    2.The structure standing way higher than the mountains, massive, geometrically perverted. Tried to create a structure where it might be unforgettable.


    3.Cold icy structure standing in the middle of the antartica


    4.When I first thought of madness, i imagined it to be illogical, crazy, nonsensical. Maybe it will look like a mirage, with no clear hints of its form and structure, like an illusion, maybe it really is beyond human understanding.


    5.One if the initial creature trial.


    And so thank for viewing. It may hardly be a good representation of Madness but still hope you enjoyed them.

    Cheers,
    Kunrong

    Nice stuff! Definitely captured a sense of Mountains of Madness. Some of it also reminds me of Zelazny's Amber Chronicles - Courts of Chaos and Shadows where our physical laws don't apply. Great job!

    I'm damned impressed! I've been dabbling in Lovecraft stuff as well and I know what you mean about the non- euclidian geometry. It becomes immediately evident how difficult it is to portray as soon as you attempt it. But you've done an excellent job with these.

    Thanks for the kind words! Indeed it all sounds simple when I only read it, but the challenge seems overwhelming when i actually attempted to create.
    It's like looking at MC Escher works. Everything looks neat, 'logically' sound, but when you try and wonder where did he even start from you realized the kind of feat he really accomplished!

    Wow, this is really awesome, these are by far a few of the best attempts at portraying Lovecraft's otherwordly descriptions of cities beyond the minds of men I have ever seen. Well done good sir!

    Really cool concepts. Were these done for the movie or for yourself?
    Either way its a shame the film was cancelled, I'm sure it would have been special.

    I was an H.P. Lovecraft addict as a child, At The Mountains Of Madness was one of my favorites (but a bit of a tease for me, I had wished it was a 3 part story and longer, I hated the fact that I was nearing the end of that book back then ). These images, especially your renditions of the geometric styled structures have that ancient alien feel. I say pick 3 at this time, polish them up fully and shop them as limited edition prints to the Lovecraft community. I'd buy one and frame it (My favorite being the Citadel). Excellent concepts bro.
