Attack of Cthulhu by PixelObsession Attack of Cthulhu by PixelObsession
This was another contest image. The theme was H. P. Lovecraft so I decided to do a painting of Cthulhu. Hope you like it :)

Done in Photoshop CS3

I am starting to think Cthulhu has internet access in R'lyeh. He's everywhere, and always so awesome.

I really like the atmosphere and composition on this. (The rest of your gallery is quite fascinating as well. No wonder you are published in Exotique.;)

Actually, I read that H.P. Lovecraft took his inspiration for "The Call of Cthulhu" from a poem called "The Kraken" by Alfred Tennyson, so that's probably where he got the idea for the squid mouth that Cthulhu is known for. Thus, that's probably why you are reminded of the Kraken, because in that way, Cthulhu is almost like a descendant of the Kraken(in inspiration, not origin, that is).

It's a monster that H.P. Lovecraft wrote about
