Artist's Description

this is a piece i drew based off a nightmare i had a few years ago… here’s how it went:

… it was late as we gained entrance to our estate, a medium sized mansion on a hill, overlooking the town below. the rains were coming down hard as the lightning flashed across the sky, and i knew we were being stalked, so as per usual, i went to put a stop to our terror… throwing on my raincoat, i hastily grabbed my dual pump shotgun, and left the house. in between the lightning flashes, i could make out a shadowy figure getting closer to me… from 50 strides away, i realized this was no normal stalker, but some sort of monstrosity ripped out of a book of mythology… it looked to stand at over 7’ tall, even though it was slightly hunched over, it had spidery eyes that were beady and glowing red, razor sharp fangs, and what looked to be lobster styled pinchers at the end of its arms… oh yeah, and it was running straight at me!

clutching the shotgun, i gave it a pump, aimed and shot… except there wasn’t a loud bang, only the loud rumblings of the thunder overhead. with panic starting to set in, i quickly repumped the shotgun and shot again… now, normally one would turn and run once they realized the gun wasn’t working. however, i was rooted in terror, which ended up costing me my life… for as i stood there trying to shoot the monster, it got ever closer… and before i knew it, the monster was right before me, its claw punching through my chest and out my back. as i limply hung there, my lifeblood flowing freely from my dying shell, the last thought to see light was one of failure… then darkness swept upon me and i awoke

… so there you have it, the truth behind the creation of this picture… and the dream is still fresh upon my mind, seared forever into the membranes…
