The Old Ones Return

Another piece executed in the newer painterly/naturalist style emphasizing mood, light, and atmosphere over detail and render. This was just a personal experiment piece (never painted a real Cthulhu before), but I'm excited to have a few commissioned illustrations using the new approach lined up. I'll be posting as they go public :)

I love the modern city under the damning eye(s) of Cthullu. Great image, great glazing techniques, masterful brushwork.
