Part of a series of images from the shadowy fringes of the Internet. Visuals that stir my sense for the eerie and macabre.
Blessed are the damned for they walk in wake of the divine light, robbed of forgiveness and healing they remain to roam the mortal lands until the end of all things. Danielle Tunstall delivers another visual impact. This is a particularly haunting blend of photography and digital manipulation. Is this the fresh host of a demonic possession? Or is it something more outre, a direct attack by some cosmic horror that exists within the pantheon of psychological and physical nightmares known collectively as the Cthulhu Mythos. Or is it a new hybrid of Infected and Changed (Orc) spinning out a new vector from the cocktail of organic and military-designed compounds that came together in the apocalyptic event known as Yellow Dawn?
Danielle Tunstall has a vast repository of images she’s created and showcasing on her website, definitely worth a look if you’re into the darker side of Cyberpunk, verging on horror, smeared in blood and corrupted tissue.

THE BLACK LAKE: The Earth has been ravaged by an event known as Yellow Dawn. Ten years later, survivors are putting lives back together and probing the frontiers of a new Wilderness; whilst overhead the orbital colonies slide across the sky, removed and unaffected. Five men leave the fortress island of Malta on an expedition to the sub-Arctic waters above Scotland. They intend to undertake scientific observations of an alien meteorological phenomenon that has followed the apocalyptic event. What they find is a cosmic horror that seethes amongst the shadows of a shattered Earth. It is a story of escape and wonder, of madness and terror. David J Rodger’s trademark unforgiving rendering of harsh reality, and relentless narrative pace, are here in palm-sweating abundance, delivered in a novel that tears open a rent in the boundary of reality, providing a nerve-jarring glimpse of the Outer Chaos and the horrors that lurk just beyond the threshold of our fragile, human existence.
