Google image search came back with Mihail Glooh if that helps.

How did you find that out? Google image search result just comes up with "darkness" for me.
Also, I googled their stuff on DeviantArt and i don't think this Mihail is the right person.

Aaaah i really want to know!!! It looks amazing.

I did a long press on the image you supplied and performed an image search via Android after which Inputting the name I found into google searching for images on that.

Not to say it's accurate but here's what initially came up on my phone.


Interestingly enough by searching the name, art with a similar theme and style was shown.


Tell you what though, when I get home I'll see if I can dig up something more definitive

It seems most sites hosting this are citing someone by the name of Mihail Glooh. However, one page of which I had to use a translator pronounced it as Mikhail Glukh and though not 100% sure, I think it's safe to assume this the artist.

Most sources cite a common/similar name and this particular page I've found hosts work found on the DeviantArt of Mihail along with the image you presented albeit under a slightly different alias.

Sadly though, I wasn't able to locate any related works to the one above.

It looks like H.R. Giger's work. The guy who came up with the visual concept for the critter from the Alien film franchise.

He passed away in 2014. Amazing and prolific artist. There's a documentary about his life and work called Dark Star which I highly recommend.
