Cthulu Rises

Artwork of HP Lovecraft’s most famous creature, the ancient god of the old world Cthulu. This had been in my sketchbook since I drew HP Lovecraft himself (posted earlier this month), but I felt the sketch needed some work before becoming a full on drawing, so it took a little while longer to do. I actually just read the Call of Cthulu book a few weeks ago and really enjoyed the story and Lovecraft’s writing style, which helped with the drive needed to finish this.

I kinda wanted to go for the whole monster in the mist feeling, keeping giant Cthulu mostly in shadow against the bad storm, giving off the perspective of what those sailors on board are seeing. A giant mysterious creature that only spells their impending doom.

Anyway, hope you all like my lastest “masterpiece.”
