Cthulhu by Disse86 has an epic sense of scale and amazing detail.  The contrast of the rising figure to the small ship is terror inducing. ( Featured by TsaoShin )

I have found out that Cthulhu is supposed to be so grotesque in appearance that he drives whoever sees him insane instantly.  I have seen multiple renditions of this being and I just have to ask, how is this supposed to drive us insane with its looks?
Also, I have to say that this is one of the best Cthulhu pictures that I have ever seen.  Well done, Disse86, well done indeed.

I have to say this is one of the best Cthulhu renditions I've seen, and I've seen a lot of them, i.e., I'm a big Lovecraft fan.  Your abilities: have you had training or are you self taught?  Mix?  I've seen a variety of pics rendered with the Photoshop/Wacom combination and they always look good.  And thealdor64 is right!
Also, don't know if you meant it but it looks like he's standing on two legs: check out the monster in the 1956 Sci-fi flick Forbidden Planet.

I'm self-taught.
No, the body was meant to disappear in the mist and down the ocean. But it's up to the viewer. :)

Yes, art work that leaves a little something more to the imagination.  I am also self-taught and fully confess to being influenced by several art books, including Walt Disney's 'How to Draw" (many years ago).  I also used to copy the drawings from my mother's Art School book when I was a child.
