There is so much to say about this character of Lovecraft. o_o
Just some book quote, to avoid too much to say, if you want to read one day (:

-And where Nyarlathotep went, rest vanished; for the small hours were rent with the screams of a nightmare. (Nyarlathotep)

-
What his fate would be, he did not know; but he felt that he was held for the coming of that frightful soul and messenger of infinity's Other Gods, the crawling chaos Nyarlathotep. (The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath)

-There are references to a Haunter of the Dark awaked by gazing into the Shining Trapezohedron, and insane conjectures about the black gulfs from which it was called. The being is spoken of as holding all knowledge, and demanding monstrous sacrifices. (The haunter in the dark)

-There was the immemorial figure of the deputy or messenger of hidden and terrible powers - the 'Black Man' of the witch cult, and the 'Nyarlathotep' of the Necronomicon. (The dreams in the witch house)

(:

I've actually read some Lovecraft which is amazing cause I never readXD...the one where there is the cthulu and the fish people, I think it's called insmourn? something like that. 

Cool, I like the creepy darkness in his writing:D It totally suits your style!

no prob, these marker are really good!!
The entire drawing is done with these markers, the nuance depends on how you orient the marker, and also the gesture (:

I think.. he'd give the most strangling kinda hugs XD
That's ok tho, but does he bite?
Really like the contrasts which are obviously there but not in such way that I can't have a good overview of the whole image.
All parts have lots of detail but still you managed to give it the feeling of a whole :)

Want a hug from him ?! :O
He does not bite, not in this form.
... :3
I wanted to give the impression that azathoth and nyarlathotep merged together (hence the fact that azathoth represents the throne of nyarlathotep, Nyarlathotep answers the least desire of his master but he is the most lucid of the two.)
Thank you for your comment!
