Cthulhu Smokes Dreaming by gaborcsigas Cthulhu Smokes Dreaming by gaborcsigas
An exercise in surreal digital book cover design and photomanipulation.

The book - Cthulhu Smokes Dreaming - does not exist, as far as I know... at least I haven't written one titled so. But who knows what might happen (or might have happened) in the Lovecraftian Dreamlands? :psychotic:

:thanks:

Comments are welcome.

Also, if you read the book I haven't written yet, drop me a note... here at dA. ;)

Nagyonnagyon tetszik stílusú kép! :) Instant fav. Nagyon jól eltalált a háttérszínek választása, meg úgy az egész. Drakulálok! ;)
Ja! El is olvastam a könyvet és nagyon tetszett. :D

Nagyon szépek a színei, meg tetszik a füst ezer karaktere :) Legalábbis én annak látok elég sok mindent a képen :O

köszönöm. örülök, hogy tetszik. :) a füstöt - és az egyebeket - illetően igazad van... a füst pl. csupa "cthulhu" feliratból áll. :nod:
