The delicate lighting and shading is amazing, and the proportions are perfect. Bravo.

I think where a lot of artists go wrong is that they make Cthulhu look too good. For instance, a lot of drawings show it to be very symmetrical. I'd imagine something like that would look completely disgusting, especially if it was confined to somewhere deep below in the darkness for years and years. 

So bravo. I love this depiction. I looks like something that would literally crawl out the sewer.

This is a very nice picture (I mean detail and skill wise), although I don't like how skinny you have portrayed Cthulhu, even if it does allow more fine details.

He does look pretty gaunt, actually. Maybe missing that chance to take over the world again depressed him.

All hail skinny Cthulhu! :worship:

Seriously, I like this better than the Davy-Jones-esque immages that are so popular. Your Cthulhu has something sinister about it, as if his flesh is made from the shadows that lurk between the stars...

Sorry! I iz a sucker for purple prose. ^^;

Interesting. It's definitely a different take on the character as he usually appears either musclebound or corpulent, so a skinny Cthulhu is a clever idea. He looks kind of...undead.

Beautiful imagery. I just bought the best of HP Lovecraft (Cthulhu's creator) today, and cannot wait to dig into it. I think I'll read it at night, with my bedroom window open to the Plutonian monstrousities of the night. His work thrills me, fills me with fantastic horrors never dreamt before...
