“Shadows Over Innsmouth” is probably one of my favorite stories by H.P. Lovecraft. In it, an academic from nearby Miskatonic University travels to the small, Massachusetts port town of Innsmouth. There, he encounters locals who are extremely xenophobic, and possessed of an odd, bulging countenance dubbed the “Innsmouth look”.
This sketch is a work in progress of what Lovecraft calls the “Deep Ones,” a race of aquatic humanoids who have been interbreeding with the humans of Innsmouth for generations.
By no means finished, I intend to smooth the sketchy lines and add some color, and definition to the skin and face.
Stay tuned for updates.
