People have been asking me to draw Cthulhu for years.  I always had plans to oblige since I am a H.P. Lovecraft fan, myself.
I just didn't have inspiration to sit down and draw him for now.

So here is the Elder God in all his wickedness.
I tried a slightly different shading technique for him.  :)

Tools Used: Photoshop version CS4, Paint Tool Sai
Time Taken: Unrecorded
Soundtrack: n/a

DO NOT copy, alter, repost, etc without the consent of the artist! Character/Image are NOT public domain!  Actually... I do believe that Cthulhu... as well as the rest of Lovecraft's ilk /may/ be public domain by this point.  It's a bit sketchy.
Please think before you type...
and please read before asking questions. I will no longer be answering questions that can either be answered by simply reading the image's description or by spending 5 seconds to Google the answer.

Very nice feeling of a strong, dangerous, Jovian Cthulhu.

He doesn't look so great to me.

There should be a cowering human by his toe, for scale.  Otherwise, he might come off as vaguely cute.  You know, for being a monstrosity.  With just the crags in the background, it's hard to see what the scale of the drawing is.

Otherwise, Cthulhu looks good...in an indescribably horrible way.
