Éder Nogueira dos Santos
Artist | Traditional Art
Brazil
My real name is Éder N. Santos and I'm from Porto Alegre, RS, Brazil. I'm a self-taught draughtsman and painter who likes to make artworks about fantasy and dark fantasy, often creatings things from my mind or getting inspiration from books or legends. I love gothic horror, science fiction, mythology and so on.

I like to use many different traditional media, like pastels, charcoal, conté, sanguine, watercolor, oil, acrylic, graphite pencils and ink.

Though I am interested in politics and have very defined political views, my art IS NOT political and I don't use DeviantArt to discuss politics.

Witch and Her Familiar
Bruxa e Seu Familiar.
Watercolor.

Éder N. Santos, 2017.
Loading...
Child and Bicho-Papao
Actually: Child and Bicho-Papão.
Portuguese: Criança e Bicho-Papão.
Dry pastel.

The Bicho-Papão (pronounced somewhat like "BEE-shoo pah-POWN", with the last syllable nasalized) is a nocturnal creature from Portuguese and Brazilian folklores. It is a typical Bogeyman: a creature used to frighten misbehaving children.

Carnivorous Plant
Planta Carnívora.
Watercolor.

A random creation, kind of a botanical illustration but of a fictional plant, of course. The mouths were loosely influenced by those of xenomorphs, the "tentacles" were inspired by the sundews (actual carnivorous plants) and the flower by the Asteraceae family of plants.
Despite those influences, most of the plant is just imaginary. I decided to put a flower there to constrast with the monstrous mouths.

The skulls and bones on the ground are obviously the leftovers of some poor, unfortunate victims. :D

One-Eyed Crone
Portuguese: Bruxa de Um Olho.
Sanguine chalk and sanguine pencil on paper.

Randomly made, 100% imaginary... I think it's one of the best drawings I have ever made (so far). I was heavily inspired by some Leonardo da Vinci and other Renaissance artists' drawings and sketches to create this one.

Flying Whales of Jupiter
Baleias Voadoras de Júpiter.
Dry pastel.

Inspired by Gojira's song Flying Whales and the concept of hypothetical "atmospheric beasts" living on gas giants. The background is the dense and stormy atmosphere of Jupiter.

As Jupiter lacks a true solid surface (like all gas planets), these alien "whales" can never stop flying or floating and land on somewhere.

Egg-Shaped Abomination of Yondo
Abominação em Formato de Ovo de Yondo.
Charcoal drawing.

Based on Clark Ashton Smith's The Abominations of Yondo:

"It had a pale, hairless, egg-shaped body, large as that of a gravid she-goat; and this body was mounted on nine long wavering legs with many flanges, like the legs of some enormous spider. The creature ran past me to the water's edge; and I saw that there were no eyes in its oddly sloping face; but two knife-like ears rose high above its head, and a thin, wrinkled snout hung down across its mouth, whose flabby lips, parted in that eternal chuckle, revealed rows of bats' teeth. It drank acidly of the bitter lake then, with thirst satisfied, it turned and seemed to sense my presence, for the wrinkled snout rose and pointed toward me, sniffing audibly. Whether the creature would have fled, or whether it meant to attack me, I do not know; for I could bear the sight no longer but ran with trembling limbs amid the massive boulders and great bars of salt along the lakeshore."

The King in Yellow
Rei de Amarelo
Dry pastel.

Based on the short stories by Robert W. Chambers. The King in Yellow is also the name of a book of short stories by Chambers in which four of them (The Repairer of Reputations, The Mask, In the Court of the Dragon and The Yellow Sign) mention the King in Yellow himself. Within these stories, The King in Yellow is a fictional book which somewhat "curses" anyone who dares to read it, ultimately driving them insane. However, it is unclear whether the king himself is a true entity or not. Besides the fact that the character wears a tattered yellow mantle and a pale mask, not much is told about him.

Little Fiend
Dry pastel.

A demon, imp or maybe a benevolent familiar. You decide.

Wow! I thank you for the watch! I'm afraid I don't do drawings except rarely, but you can expect stories (and some poetry perhaps) inspired by the likes of Lovecraft, Clark Ashton Smith, Lord Dunsany, etc. 

I'm rather flattered actually, because you are among my favorite artists on this website. Not only is your style exotic, weird, and pleasant, but also quite fitting of some of your illustrations of Lovecraft's creatures. :D I hope to see more bizarre work from you!

Thanks. I'll read your stories, I promise, and I'll give you a feedback as soon as I have more free time. And thank you very much for the recognition and the kind words. :) I'm always uploading new stuff, like, every other day or at least twice per week.

I also write stuff (though I use DeviantArt for my visual artworks only), and I'm currently writing a fantasy novel (not horror, but it does have some dark and macabre passages). It's becoming quite large (more than 85,000 words so far) and I'm writing it in Portuguese first, however.

I would be most delighted to see your thoughts on my tales. :D So far I only have one poem and one story, but I'm writing my second story as we speak! Unfortunately I can't read Portuguese, but nonetheless I'm very interested in a dark and macabre novel! My tales are mostly fantasy more than anything, but perhaps with moments of horror. More inspired by Smith and Dunsany but with some Lovecraft as well.

I'll be waiting for your upcoming stories. As for my novel, I'll try to officially publish it here in Brazil first, but I want an English translation for foreign readers though that may end up being someone else's job. It's just too large for a quick translation.

BUT I also have some ideas for some short stories, which I'll perhaps write directly in English and post here.
