Hi guys here's another new one based on the works of H.P Lovecraft. Very rough pencil worked up in Photoshop, took
about two days of tinkering until I was happy with this one plus
I replaced the guys legs last minute.

I'll be posting more in the future.
Any feed back welcome, feel free to check out my new site.

Cheers again.

Dude that thing rules
looks like ti belongs in the necronomicon movie. first chapter when the guy summons a spirit to pring his wife back. little did he know that she was a trap attached to the masive beast that now wanted to eat him hehe

Cthulhu isn't a terribly friendly intergalactic squid god, every time he's mentioned he's killing someone or destroying something. A pity, I'm sure he'd be great at birthday parties.

Awesome cuttlefish! Reminds me of those hazy-looking Dungeons & Dragons posters from the 80's. :thumbsup:

I love the piece, I like the rough feel to it, as if it is still a picture in the minds eye.

Composition wise I really like the light shining from down below, opening up the scene, and then to be blocked by the omnious figure of the squid-monster, making him more menacing.

I can't find anything to fault really, so well done !

greatly done, but not a lot to it for me to look at, in my opinion. i figure the tentacles would be more all over the place rather than just that one attacking the man :shrug:
