I was feeling in the mood for something Lovecraftian. My favorite story is actually "The Color Out of Space", but I haven't yet figured out a way to Photoshop a color no one has ever seen before.

Wow, cool! Actually there IS a way to visually represent a nonexistent color: create two identical images, but make the Color different in each image. The viewer crosses their eyes to combine the two images into one, and the colors merge together to create not their midpoint on the color wheel, but an impossible color hybrid.

Very cool -- the architecture of the buildings makes me think "Lovecraft meets Godzilla"

(Color out of space couldn't be photoshopped, and a digital camera couldn't image it, because the digital color range is too restricted, you'd need to use something like Kodachrome II to record it and they're not making it anymore...)

I was trying to go an unidentifiable style of architecture - a little Japanese, a little modern, a little "monastery built into a cliff" - something crazy Cthulhu cultists would put together on their Pacific island.

I don't think any medium could truly capture the Color out of space - only the imagination.

Thank you. I always try to load my work with details that come out the more you look for them.
