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.

This looks incredible!

Could you draw a Sea Monster Ox please

I would love to see your take on some of the other Mythos beings.
Like maybe the Men from Leng…
or the cats from Saturn…

This piece is amazing! <3
Can I use it as my wallpaper?

Also, they use it on their site and there's no credit to yuo, as far as I can see. :/…

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.

That is very impressive. That is a really scary representation. A great tribute for Cthulhu.
