Expect Us by Turisas Expect Us by Turisas
Now, those who know me well know that I sometimes have quite a lot of nightmares. This one was a while ago. One of the more vivid images.

What made this one different is that it didn't involve me at all. It involved a place of stone and these great obelisks and a feeling of dread. Whispers kept saying "Expect us" in multiple languages and the numbers 5, 19 and 13 made an appearance constantly, in that order. The whole scene was so 'Lovecraftian' I had to draw it.

Oh wow, this is so intense! I don't know whether to be jealous of the inspiration you get from your nightmares or be glad I'm not in your place. :fear:

Also - did you know that 19 is something of a 'special' number in Stephen King's works?

I didn't know that. I did how ever know that in islamic myth, there are 19 angels guarding Hell. I don't know what the numbers could mean though.

Painajaiset ovat perseestä. Mutta tämä on silti sen verran näyttävä tulkinta että jotenkin voisi tuntea olevansa valmis katsomaan tämän pläjäyksen aivokanavalta jonain yönä...

Njoo, näkymä oli kieltämättä komea, hienompi kuin miten sain laitettua ylös.
