For all the H.P. Lovecraft fans, this one is for you. If you don't know who that is, Mi-Go Swarm by ~jarling-art is still a remarkable image with the textures and colors used to create such a powerful scene. ( Featured by Aeires )

It's a really cool and creepy image, but I think seeing a huge swarm of them is draining my sanity. I'm already starting to hallucinate that my screen is transforming into a polymorphous blob and there's an undead mutation growing out of my sternum.

Seeing the loathsome (yet inexplicably appealing) Mi-Go take flight en masse makes them seem truly formidable. Nicely done :nod:.

I remember those things from from the RPG. Just one of those things suck. I can't imagine a whole swarm! Nice job!

:) Great. I'm glad it's a fantasy art that DOESN'T include some jumping dolphins. For some reason there's just way too many of those. :) yours is great. a bit of dark turmoil with a bit of beauty mixed in.
