Hi Folks! Yes, I know… you are waiting for me to continue my blog with some new and creative articles, but I need to stall for time and have just stumbled over a very nice piece of Lovecraft-like artwork that is (read this carefully) for free.
I am talking about a piece named The Stars Were Right made by Alexey Vinokurov and the David Sharrock that is available over there at drivethrurpg.com from Forever People. The artwork itself is nice, but the conditions it is offered under are even better. As it is written on the drivethrurpg.com page (see link above):

“The piece is free to download and use in your own project. It isn’t particularly hi-res and never was I’m afraid, but it might be good for incidental art, whatever you like really.

Oh, and enjoying it I do! In fact, I just made it my current desktop picture! So, if you have a project that includes mythos-like monsters or god-things, read the license and consider it!
Thank you, Mr. Vinokurov and Mr. Sharrock!
