    I am working on some personal props and need help. I am attempting to create a tome that's about 200 pages with lots of horrible illustrations and what not but the problem is drawing 50 + bizarre thingsÂ…IÂ’m ok but kind of slow in my drawing so I am asking if any one here knows of good images that I can use? This prop is for me and I do not intend on selling it. I have seen some very good tomes on ebay but right now $100+ is a little steep so I am creating my own. Any links or even drawings done by the talented folks here would be welcome. :D

    Check out Wayne Barlowe's site....

    Wayne Barlowe

    Wayne is best known for his book Barlowe's Guide to ExtraTerrestrials but his new paintings of a tour of Hell is truly terrifying. The stuff is so intense and original, the mind has trouble wrapping around it.

    Thanks for the link. Wayne's work is really great. Kind of reminds me of Slayer covers. :D

    That's why they're using him for the pre-prod artwork for the adaptation of Paradise Lost.

    If you're trying to put something similar to a Necronomicon together, try Apocalypse productions (Mike Haspil produced the definitive book prop - his 9 Gates has never been surpassed). The text, fonts, and even the woodcuts are available there.

    Another good site would be the H.P. Lovecraft Historical society; they have many paper props available.

    Try this site. Some of the descriptions have illustrations. I suppose you could cut and paste the images, or trace them.

    Demonology

    Here's another...

    Demonic enclyclopedia

    I've tried a search on the net but could not find Apocalypse productions. Is there a link you know of? Or perhaps a key word to help me find it?
