Shadow Over Innsmouth characters

One of my favorite scary stories is H.P. Lovecraft’s “A Shadow Over Innsmouth,” which is about a prissy youngster who goes antiquing in a town populated by (spolier!) fish people.  It’s chock full of dreadful buildup, and so I’ve been meaning to do some character sketches for it for some time.  Here are a few, including the narrator, the priest from the Esoteric Order of Dagon, alcoholoic nonagenarian Zadock Allen, the young grocery store manager, bus driver Joe Sargent, and a bunch of Innsmouth residents and Deep Ones (as the full-blown fish folk are called).  I also did a big Dagon, from the short story of the same name, whom I’ve heard described as a Deep One old enough to have grown to a massive size.  For scale, he should be about double the size as he’s depicted here, but I wanted him to fit, y’know.  

The original art for these are available for sale (each character is its own piece).  8.5x11," ink on 80# stock, shipped the Tuesday after purchase.  First come, first serve.  PLEASE INCLUDE A NOTE DESCRIBING THE CHARACTER THAT YOU WANT.  I will mark which ones are sold as soon as I'm available.  The prices are for the smaller figures; the larger Dagon drawing is on 11x17, and costs $100.

Sold so far:
#2 (Esoteric Order of Dagon Priest)
#5 (hunched fishy-faced sailor with pipe)

Pick the cost based on your location
