Cthulhu rising by DaShadeE Cthulhu rising by DaShadeE
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.

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.

Everyone looking at this should try and picture it as mainly allegorical and symbolic, and not some creepy foreshadowing of the end of the world. :(

This is super awesome, are you the original maker? It actually came out really good, as when I first saw this (Looking up tornado pictures, and seeing a video a lot like it seemingly, I knew that it was a multivortex and hence, real) but when I showed it to my brother he explained it to me. Honestly, this really came out very good, and your photo blending is absolutely flawless. Thumbs way up for having me in suspense!

Nicely done!

We are the masters of a power driven to the far reaches of the universe, and we have but one desire! Can one such as you possibly fathom how dearly we have clung to this dream across the aeons? How could you! You couldn't! Never ever ever! We who once faced those who were in such fear of our power that they sealed us away and banished us to the edge of the galaxy! US! As if THAT loveliness wasn't enough, they tried to erase our very existence from history! RUDE! Only through our magic were we able to overcome their science and achieve great prosperity! We alone were responsible for stopping that repulsive nightmare of a galactic crisis, yet this is how you repay us! This won't stand! It won't be forgiven! It won't be forgotten! Never ever EVER! Those who called us mad, are you listening? You left us at the edge of the galaxy to be forgotten, then went along your merry way, probably living somewhere pretty and peaceful! But know this! Your future is a farce! You have none! We, masters of a matter most dark, vow to be restored, as foretold in the book of legend, which everyone thought was just a fairy tale! It WASN'T! We have already obtained the vessel that contains our Dark Lord, and he will soon awaken and shower us in compassion! Look! The vessel of our Dark Lord is filling up even as we speak! Now the time for his greatness to enter our world has come! Welcome to a new history! A new age! The age of awesome! HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DARK LORD! HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Grace us, Gloriously Dark Looooooord!

my dad showed this to me just yesterday claiming it was something like, "several tornadoes coming together into one big tornado," and I knew it was just Cthulhu art of some sort, but I didn't want to make him feel bad for being duped LMAO

This is well-done - I like the use of the real photo and the cosmic mysteriousness of the painting at the same time. It makes it feel like a dream, with the foreground so "in focus" and the distance so painterly.
