Sci-Fi & Fantasy / "Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath"

"Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath"
9" x 14.5" Digital Painting

We were assigned to do a cover illustration for a Sci-Fi or Fantasy novel we've read. The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath immediately came to mind, and those creepy obsidian merchants. I hadn't read it in a while, so I skimmed and found where the merchants were described. It was interestingly vague. No idea why I had such a vivid memory of how they looked in my head... but I guess that was the best reason to illustrate them!

Thanks to Chris Negelein for being a gangsta roommate and turning into a demon!
