Yithian, keeper of the great library by moonxels Yithian, keeper of the great library by moonxels
this is a view of a Yithian
The great and ancient race of Yith, Yithians possess the ability to transfer their minds across time and space. By swapping consciousnesses with other beings, Yithians are able to explore remote worlds and eras. Furthermore, when they learned that their race would be extinguished by flying polyps, they used their psychic powers to send their minds hurtling across the universe to reside in the tall, strange, conical forms of four-limbed beings from an ancient Earth

This is absolutely fantastic. The Shadow Out Of Time is one of my favourite stories to read and the Yithians are, next to the Elder Things, my favourite Lovecraft race. In this picture they are depicted very closely to what I have imagined from reading that story.

Well done.

Yithians are my favorite Lovecraft creature. Also in my opinion, they are the most benign.

np. I'm a big Lovecraftian guy, sadly my work comes out looking like a bad adverb lol This really does justice to the great race's appearance.

Great job! Lovecraft's older races are always hard to depict without them turning out like a geometry teachers wet dream. I can only imagine a caption like...

"Lets see 'n'.... Necrotechnology... Necromancy... Necronomicon... Hmmm seems someone checked that volume out.'

When I was with the Yithians, their great library had a scale holographic representation of our galaxy (our galaxy is named Ykliphthofliflithiayaargh in the language of the Older Ones- just so you know...). It was totally awesome. :D Nice work!!
