The more I look at this the more I love it! This drawing has really inspired me; there elements of it I would like to incorporate into a drawing of the old D&D demon Demogorgon.
Artists lately have given him to much of a mammalian look in my opinion and I would like to do a more reptilian and cephalopod version. This is the kind of look I was thinking of. I won't just blatantly rip it off of course, but this does have the feel I was looking for. When I get it done I'll put link to this pic and thanks for the inspiration.

A nice take, then! Love the color change, even if Lovecraft said it was green... And the design is pretty cool and original, yet kaiju-ish. Well done.

I like how the bottom jaw is just a lot of spiky tentacles

So much amazing.  And this is just as valid a depiction based on the description in the story as the giant octopus-baby with wings that most people think of!  Amazing.

This is amazing.
At first I thought you'd used a 3D modeler and painted on top of a screen-grab, but this looks amazing and it's all the more impressive knowing that this is completely 2D. 
The colours work wonderfully together.

ChucklingDevil's avatar
Yes I did! Not to worry, it quickly made its way into my favourites folder.

This is one of the best versions of Cthulu I've seen in a long while, though he's a bit short on the eyes.

Probably the most unique take on Cthulhu that I've seen to date. Nicely done.
