HOUND OF TINDALOS

HOUND OF TINDALOS
"Beyond life there are'—his face grew ashen with terror—'things that I cannot distinguish. They move slowly through angles. They have no bodies, and they move slowly through outrageous angles.'"

"'All the evil in the universe was concentrated in their lean, hungry bodies. Or had they bodies? I saw them only for a moment, I cannot be certain."


"'God, they are breaking through! They are breaking through! Smoke is pouring in from the corners of the wall. Their tongues—ahhh—"'

Frank Belknap Long, The Hounds Of Tindalos

"The nature of the Doels was plainly revealed, and I was told the essence (though not the source) of the Hounds of Tindalos."
H.P. Lovecraft, The Whisperer In Darkness

  1. Nice job - I've never been able to fix a Hound of Tindalos in my imagination.

  5. Totally different from the way which the hounds have always looked in my mind... but that's what makes this blog so much fun to look at.

  6. The Hounds have always been one of those Lovecraftian creatures that I've never been able to satisfactorily imagine; everything I picture ends up being far too mundane for an extradimensional being pieced together from a different set of fundamental building blocks than those of which we're composed. This is a very satisfactorily original interpretation of them, though, and I love how you've shied clear of just drawing them as starved-looking dogs, which is what most artists seem to do.

  7. Thanks man!! Yeah I never took the "hounds" part literally and I think it's limiting given how insane their environment is.
