Lovecraft Sketch MWF: A Priestess of Bast

Lovecraft Sketch MWF: A Priestess of Bast

Because a Kickstarter patron asked for it: my first (very tentatively) Lovecraftian sketch that contains NUDITY! Yes, I “went there” and became, in Lovecraft’s words, “a Grub Street hack” and actually drew cartoon breasts. It was a fun change of pace from the monsters, but as all too often is the case, though, my human anatomy probably could’ve used some work, or a model. Apologies if you’re viewing this at work.

Over at King of RPGs: a new page of The Deadliest P.R. Guy in the World! Go read it!

    I think it turned out really well, Jason. It looks like you struggled a bit around the hip and shoulder area. But you certainly didn’t embarrass yourself. To boost your ego, go view some Todd McFarlane “art”. ;)

    There’s nothing wrong with classy nudity. I don’t recall any objections over your depiction of Wilbur Whateley (ha, ha). Seriously, would HPL really be offended by such a scene? It is depicted in a non-salacious, rather matter-of-fact way. He would certainly have liked your cats, all of whom have differing expressions and poses.

    Drawing convincing depictions of living creatures is incredibly difficult. To my mind, the cat the priestess is holding should be “sagging” a bit more, but to accurately draw it that way I’d have to see someone actually picking one up.

    I actually don’t really have any taboo against drawing nudity (there is a tiny bit in the Strange High House in the Mist story I drew), but it’s always a challenge drawing attractive women, and even more so when they’re disrobed. Also, it seemed out of place for this blog. Basically it’s just me making a big deal and drawing attention to it, I suppose. ;)

    Even Lovecraft had nudity in his stories, he was just too modest to detail them. We saw them on covers of the pulps all the time. Women’s breasts, navels and butts shown—-in artistic ways as yourself. It is beautiful! Now when will we see Nephren-Ka and his ghoul queen Nitocris with a “half eaten face” sitting on gold an ivory thrones watching their hybrid sewn together corpse servants dance and cavort for them.
