Hellfighters in Hell by FatherStone Hellfighters in Hell by FatherStone
2016, Ink on paper
17,8 x 22,9 cm. (7 x 9 inches)

© Matteo Bocci

The second illustration I made for “Cthulhu Dark”, the Lovecraftian role-playing game by Graham Walmsley, features a Mi-Go, his unfortunate victim and the Harlem Hellfighters, an American infantry regiment of African-American soldiers. It was fun to finally have the opportunity of drawing a Mi-Go and it was also very interesting to learn something about the Hellfighters and their story.

Alla fine mi ci diverto. Fare i puntini è quasi rilassante. Ci metto molto di più a studiare l'inquadratura. E i tuoi disegni come vanno?

Gorgeous work as always, Matteo! And as usual for a process fan as me, it's awesome to learn that you kept a scan of the pencils around-- I love how the whole piece it's already fleshed out at the pencil stage, yet the contrast and details you add when inking ends up bringing the right atmosphere for such an scene.

Thank you so much for your comment, Diego! Just a couple of years ago I wasn't used to scan my pencils because I used to do the large part of the work with inks and the pencil stage was just a way to fix the main elements of the composition. But recently a client asked me if he could see the pencils done before starting to ink, so I had to make the drawing look good enough even in pencils. Now I use to fix every element in pencil before the inking phase and I like working this way. But as you noticed, I still try to add something during the inking phase.
I'm very glad you took the time to look at the pencils. Thanks again!
