Cthulhu Rising

Description

If I say that my somewhat extravagant imagination yielded simultaneous pictures of an octopus, a dragon, and a human caricature, I shall not be unfaithful to the spirit of the thing. A pulpy, tentacled head surmounted a grotesque and scaly body with rudimentary wings... It represented a monster of vaguely anthropoid outline, but with an octopus-like head whose face was a mass of feelers, a scaly, rubbery-looking body, prodigious claws on hind and fore feet, and long, narrow wings behind. This thing, which seemed instinct with a fearsome and unnatural malignancy, was of a somewhat bloated corpulence..." ~ H.P. Lovecraft, "The Call of Cthulhu"

That is beautiful! I love that Cthulhu looks a bit more beast-like-I could imagine this thing walking on all fours and that’s cool. I love the purple. Definitely looks like a creature that could be in a movie!
