The Cutethulhu image is merely a lure into the bowels of insanity

This just may be my favorite Cthulhu piece. He's never looked so Dark Lordy.

I know that could be very annoying for you, but I think I like more this one. The new version is very good, but this one is more evocative. I think I could find it in a Church of a post-apocalypse World, to represent the end of the ancient world.
Still, I love both this paintings, and I think at them every time i read HPL.
PS: sorry for the horrible english.

To get back to you a year later, You're not the first person to say they prefer this version, and I've got no problem with that :). I'm just happy you like either of them, let alone both! Thank you for your kind words.

Yes, one of the best illustrations of Cthulhu! Just vague enough to leave something to the imagination, as it should be!

A GREAT picture! love the coloring and your silhouette of Cthulhu is wonderfully designed and creepy!
we need to join together on something since I'm sure their are a few folks here who aren't part of what I'm about to talk about T_T.

my fellow Cthulhu fan... Kaiju Combat (a game being made by the team that brought the world Godzilla:Destroy all Monsters Melee, Godzilla:Save The Earth, Rampage Total Destruction, and Godzilla unleashed) is a new giant monster fighting game the team is trying to get funded on kickstarter in October. We just need folks to sign up on the forums and give your input. This game is using a voting system to get various monsters into the game (Cthulhu is a major one being voted on right now and will be in game if we get enough votes for him on his poll according to the creators of the game) and we need forum members to vote and give feedback so we can make this game the best it can be!

I agree this one is far more striking visually than the "improved version". Love this work! If this was available as a poster i'd totally buy/print it.

Whoa. This is easily the best Cthulhu image on DA. Possibly the best I've ever seen. And far more powerful than the improved version...

Actually makes me think of Warcraft. I imagine an Old God appearing from the Well of Eternity and ravaging the Night Elf capital. (probably because the Old Gods were based off of Lovecraftian horror :P)

I think the first one - this one - feels more lovecraftian, but the new one is more detailed.
