(Updated) The final rendered ink drawing, based on the concept the client liked the best. Done with fine liners and biro, and slightly touched up in Photoshop CC with my Wacom tablet. I know this isn't really the usual depiction of the old Lovecraft legend but was fun to do a bit of a different take on the concept. Have been taking it back to traditional a bit lately and getting some fun ink and biro illustrations and commissions done.

I like your interpretation of C'thulu.
 I have thought about doing a contest based on C'thulu as a young, pre-dead dieity.

Fantastic work! I like how you drew the wings & their membranes. The webbing between the fingers and toes looks awesome!! The fingerwebs would've looked cool extended to the fingertips!
