Azathoth's Court
Corte de Azathoth.
Dry pastel on paper.

I wanted to depict Azathoth as some kind of "living planet", illuminated by a nearby star and orbited by his blind flute players who act as his "moons".

Éder N. Santos, 2017.
Portrait of a Genie
Retrato de um Gênio.
Conté crayon.

A jinn, marid or other genie-like entity. Who knows?
Éder N. Santos, 2017.
Venusian Animal
Animal Venusiano.
Dry pastel on paper.

Inspired by arachnids, facehuggers and by a dream I had (of a scorpion whose palps and pincers where located behind the legs) with some randomly created touches (such as the slug-like eyes). I also tried to create a faithful Venusian landscape, with a rocky, barren desert, elevations and volcanoes, and a very dense and cloudy orange atmosphere (the surface would be actually darker than that due to the clouds blocking much of the sunlight, but I gave it an extra light to make things more visible).

I really love astrobiology, but I know life on Venus is highly unlikely due to the extreme conditions on the planet. So this is just a fantasy artwork.

That creature should be an extremophile, capable of withstanding an anormous atmospheric pressure (92 times heavier than Earth's) and extremely high temperatures (an average of 467ºC). It should also find a way to survive without water and with an air mostly composed of carbon dioxide and even sulfuric acid. It should have a very different biochemistry than that of any animal of Earth.

Éder N. Santos, 2017.
Wooden Man II
Homem de Madeira II.
Conté crayon.

Just like the first one, this one was created randomly, but with a "beard" composed of various fungi and plants, some lichen on his bark and a more skull-like face.

I imagine them as being some strange and misterious forest dwelling people. 

Éder N. Santos, 2017.
Hieronymus Bosch's Bearded Freak
Portuguese: Aberração Barbuda de Hieronymus Bosch.
Dry pastel on paper.

Based on a strange creature who appears in the painting by Dutch renaissance painter Hieronymus Bosch titled The Last Judgment, completed in 1505 (detail here:…). I didn't want to just "copy" Bosch's creature. Instead, I created my own portrait of it. The guy changed little in 512 years.

Bosch was a painter centuries ahead of his time. He made surrealist paintings four hundred years before surrealism arose as a movement. He also created very curious monsters. :)

Éder N. Santos, 2017. 
Dry pastel.

Random creation. I wanted him to be a goblin-like being with an annoying and disturbing face. I think I made it. :)

Éder N. Santos, 2017.
Hyperborean Serpent Man
Conté crayon drawing.

Though the Serpent Men are a creation of Robert E. Howard, this one was indeed inspired by Clark Ashton Smith's The Seven Geases and the role of Serpent Men as scientists in Hyperborea.

Éder N. Santos, 2017.


Qodaet's Profile Picture
Éder Nogueira dos Santos
Artist | Traditional Art
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.
