“Shocking and uncouth black beings with smooth, oily, whale-like surfaces, unpleasant horns that curved inward toward each other, bat-wings whose beating made no sound, ugly prehensile paws, and barbed tails that lashed needlessly and disquietingly. And worst of all, they never spoke or laughed, and never smiled because they had no faces at all to smile with, but only a suggestive blankness where a face ought to be. All they ever did was clutch and fly and tickle; that was the way of night-gaunts.”
—H. P. Lovecraft, The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath

  1. I was searching for Night Gaunt pictures on google images, and when I saw this one, I said "THAT is a night gaunt!".
    Good Job on this one, it is exactly how I pictured it in my head :)

    1. Night-guants have always been a favorite of mine. There was no doubt in my mind what they should look like.

  2. Does anyone know if dreamlands creatures can exist on earth?
