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.

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…

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.

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!
