A cosmic horror emerging from the mist

EDIT: Since this painting has gone viral, with numerous people claiming all kinds of dumb shit about it, some clarifications are in order:
It is a freehand painting over a photo, done in Photoshop. The original photo was taken from Google, the location is a highway near Sofia, Bulgaria. As the original photo is not mine, I will refrain from selling this artwork.

EDIT 2: I posted this for proof, as well as some of my thoughts on the issue with this image: www.deviantart.com/dashadee/ar…

I saw this image on Facebook from a woman claiming to be the photographer of this "angel". Looks great by the way!! Super creepy!! And I will say, several people came to your defense providing credit to this lunatic. lol

This is the group she posted it in: www.facebook.com/groups/social…

This is her Facebook page (where she posted it yet again) claiming ownership:www.facebook.com/jane.smiddymu…

Hi,

Yours and similar comments prompted me to upload this: Cthulhu proof. The description contains some more of my thoughts on the matter. Anyway, thank you!

I know what you mean about 'dumb shit' being said about it.  I saw it posted somewhere (Facebook maybe?) where some idiot had made the claim it was an actual photo of multiple tornadoes.  I think the individual was attempting to use it as a scare tactic warning about the results of global warming.  The sad thing was how many people responded to that post actually believing it was a real photo of multiple tornadoes.

No worries mate, felt it right to do that, however, I admit when I first saw that video that image unnerved me as I find H.P. Lovecraft's works to be fairly plausible at least in my mind anyways. Either way the original piece is great very effective.

Thank you for this image. If its any consolation I found this on pinterest, saved it, then did the fact check for it, which sent me to your dA. I am writing a story in this genre for NaNoWriMo in November, and this was a must add to my novel brainstorming pinterest board. You may have some nuts out there making waves, but thanks to them you have a grateful fan. <3

This really reminds me of how the Dunwich Horror ends, Lovecraft's story. The being that appeared on the sky fits the description.

What? That's not how The Dunwich Horror ends.

I saw it claimed as being in Oklahoma - as if such mountains are found there
