"All cities burn, as with flaming steps,
The Black Thing threads upon the earth.
That day, there shall be no end of death,
and It shall be the end of Death..."

A silly (but cool) painting about an Antediluvian death-god cleansing one of Istanbul's seaside neighborhoods with purifying fire.

After seeing a dream last night about the world being engulfed by the apocalypse, I feel strangely pulled into the world of this painting.

I know it's because of the mores of our civilization, but it does seem inappropriate that you don't see more old gods with genitalia.

The old gods seemed to be pretty comfortable with their sexuality - although I wouldn't say the new ones are devoid of such references either, just more closely wrapped in metaphors and symbols. I really wonder what happened at a certain period of history that got people so ashamed of sex all of a sudden. How did the world end in your dream?

Christianity mostly.

and on that note, its cool you added an unsheathed erect dick. many african, asian, pacific, and early european cultures revered the phallus as a symbol of power. a good example is the west african throwing knife, which features a silhouette of a rather formidable penis jutting out of the business-end

and i apologize for the sloppiness of this comment, both of my hands are broken atm

I think most abrahamic religions have this fear of sex. Of course, assuming that pagan religions were "more free" just because they had more sexual symbols might be wrong. For example, some Hindu temples are decorated liberally with erotic sculptures, yet women are severely oppressed in India today.

Both hands broken? Good lord, how did that happen?

As odd as this may sound, I had some sort of insane excited jitters when I heard that you responded to me. You've been a major influence in all of my art. Well, you and Lovecraft for my ideas and that sort of thing. Thanks for....responding! You've gotten me in trouble at school drawing Snaiad fanart, so I guess that makes up for it! Heheh...

KILLALLHUMANS!!!! Looks like another end to another world. Awesome picture nemo ramjet. He (the creature) looks like some sort of chinese dragon meshed into the exoskeleton of a grasshopper. Very wierd and interesting concept with the erected genitals. I love your creatures; especially snaiadi ones.

OMG! Whr Is Snaiad U! I can't get on to it from the internet anymore. Was it destroyed by this god of death? did its stars die out?! WAAAAAAA! At least I can still see some of them on DA. Any way, Look out for me, transapient as I begin my own deviations.

By the way nemo, beig a big fan o' yours, if you ever see this, there will be snaiadi fan art by me. In my iUniverse, snaiad has its own sophonts--the Oun-Gon-Ra. If ya wana see em, then see me, transapient. Not yet though I still gotta install my scanner, but then the oun-gon-ra shall rule!

He he! Funny in a gross way. A paraphilic death-god who gets sexually aroused by death.

That was a unusual idea but i like it.

Actually it is kind of silly, prosaic and fascinating conceptually speaking...not to mention a more realistic depiction of a Death god (well any god really)

I like the fact that it has an erection....it makes it seem as if death is a fetish, something that excites it.

Funny enough a while a ago I had a dream with a similar looking giant, though it was purple, and a skull covered face, and a long tube tongue, that lived by an inland magma sea !
Great job, and I can't wait to see what else you make !

Its got an almost Ukiyo-E feel to it, what with the single shades and clean lines. Also the creatures head resembles a kabuto to some extent although I suspect thats more coincidence than anything.

Hehe, I drew it with a boner because, at some artsy-fartsy psychological level, death and lust seem to be very closely related.
