The Deep Ones

Artist Wesley Remory brings us another example of a beautiful Mythos tome. There's just so much to like here, from the hand-inked calligraphy to the fantastic artwork.

This is superb!
He says had fear about aging pages...well... scan it and mount them in a copy...thus you can get a copy of your original artwork to play with it.
And if he make more than one copy...for sure are going to be sold!!!

The good works keep comming! I like the font style as well. It reminds me of the cursive style of writing I have seen on Spanish legal documents from the late 1600s and early 1700s.

Consider photographing this with a less modern background. It need not be medieval, but a good oak table top or even on flagstones will really enhance presentation. I can see all the hard work you put into this book. I also enjoy the fact that you did your own take of the Mythos and it really shows on in the unique nature of the work.

I know how the guy feels though. I made a musty old tome but I'm afraid to draw in it.

I feel rather left out in the tome crafter's world. I love binding, stitching and weathering my own leather tomes, but I have a rather inconvenient writing dysfunction. Any attempts I might make at such calligraphy are forever doomed to look like the scribblings of a third grade necromancer. The tomes themselves always make good costume props though.

That sounds reasonable enough Anon. Then if someone asks whats inside, just shudder and whisper that you darn not, for it contains forbidden knowledge.
