Cthulhu Statue by Rotarr

Cthulhu Statue

Based on the original sketch from Lovecraft himself: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/8/8d/Cthulhu_sketch_by_Lovecraft.jpg

Dunno. I just felt like painting this. As a practice.
And also because you never need a reason to draw Cthulhu.
Never.

    Almost NOBODY ever refs from Lovecraft's actual sketch. Love this!

      For the longest time I didn't even knew there was a sketch! Also...I think it's cool. It has something primitiv to it.

      • Link

        I don't think a lot of people are aware of the sketch's existence. It does have that primitive vibe, you're right. I'm rather fond of all the eyes it has, personally, heheh.

    You awakened him! Shame on you! Now he will hire you to draw all these weird pictures and make the strange statues that lower your sanity immediatly. Thanks a lot. I'll never can look at artwork again. ò.ó

    Looks so realistic...your shading is incredible, it creates such depth! c:

    • Link

      Ah! Thanks for saying so. That was my main-goal. Because most of the time my shading looks "flat" and not dark enough. So I trained on this one a bit. So I'm really glad you mentioned that ^_^

    It looks glorious.
