Éder Nogueira dos Santos
Artist | Traditional Art
Brazil
Hi. 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.

The Chupacabra
Dry pastel.

My rendition of the (in)famous cryptid known as Chupacabra ("goat sucker" in Spanish and Portuguese). I remember well about alleged cases linked to it, involving dead, bloodless animals being widespread in rural areas of Latin America back in the 90's, including here in Brazil.

Though there are many versions of Chupacabra with very different physical descriptions, I tried to create a somewhat new one but more similar to the "alien" description, which is more widespread in Brazil than the "canid" version, which is more common in Texas. I'm not very fond of the dog or jackal-like version.

The alien version is somewhat similar to a grey alien but with sharp spikes along their head and back and, of course, sharp fangs. My version, however, has a more protruding, dinosaur-like face and a visible pointed ear, no hair or scales, and three fangs, since in most alleged cases the dead animals were found with three holes in the neck from which the blood was extracted.

And since my artworks usually must have a simple background, I obsviouly decided to draw a rural one.

Tentacled Priest
Portuguese: Sacerdote Tentaculado.
Watercolor on paper.

Original creation. Actually a "sequel" to a previous dry pastel work of mine, "Tentacled Wizard" (qodaet.deviantart.com/art/Tent…). These green men with tentacles for arms belong to some extradimensional race of monastic magi, which may appear in some short story in the future.

It has been a long hiatus since my last watercolor painting. Somehow I forgot how pleasant it is to paint with aquarelle (though I still prefer "dusty" media like pastel :P).

Atlach-Nacha
Dry pastel.

Atlach-Nacha is a spider god who resides in the continent of Hyperborea. It is a creation of Clark Ashton Smith and appears in The Seven Geases. It also belongs to the Cthulhu Mythos.

Beelzebub
Conté crayon drawing.

The infamous demon from Christian demonolgy, also known as the "Lord of Flies". Sometimes depicted as a monstrous fly, sometimes as a regular humanoid demon. Here I mixed both interpretations, as I usually do when a creature has more than one version. 

PS: I'm not a satanist, just a mythology enthusiast who thinks demons are cool. :D

Moon-Beast (Lovecraft)
Dry pastel on paper.

One more for my new pastel series of lovecraftian creatures. The moon-beast appears in The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath and they live on the Dreamlands's Moon (which is very different from the real world's moon). They are eyeless, greyish-white frog-like (though they have some shapeshifting abilities) creatures with a mass of pinkish tentacles at the end of their snouts.

Strange Entity
Entidade Estranha.
Conté crayon drawing.

Something I created randomly and in real time, perhaps a trickster + joker + clown + goblin + gremlin + kobalos with some futuristic clothes. I don't know whether this entity is male or female (maybe sexless?).

Deep Sea Guard (Member of the Pale Race)
Guarda do Fundo do Mar (Membro da Raça Pálida).
Dry pastel on paper.

Based on the creation of JoeRB, from his short story A Taste of Pale Flesh (joerb.deviantart.com/art/A-Tas…).

Well, I don't know if I get the idea correctly, but I hope I did. It is basically a sentinel who belongs to a godly deep sea race of pale individuals, who have some degree of shapeshifting abilities. The guards have corals growing on their bakcs like an armor, two serrated pink tentacles terminating from their heads and use strange pincers as weapons.

Just click on the link to read JoeRB 's tale. :)

Parasite II
Parasita II.
Conté crayon.

Second version of an original drawing of mine. The creature itself is perhaps a bio-weapon, some biocybernetic being which turns its victims into zombies... or something like that.

Rhan-Tegoth
Dry pastel on paper.

The lovecraftian entity known as Rhan-Tegoth, from The Horror in the Museum by H. P. Lovecraft and Hazel Heald.

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.
