They say that we've only explored 5% of the ocean floor.  Perhaps it would be best if we didn't look too far, eh?  Lovecraft might have said that his work was never meant to be interpreted as anything other than fantasy, but you never know...

Epic work here, giving Cthulhu all of his mysterious, sinister appeal and completely realizing how screwed his most recent discoverers are.  I just have one question: in the background, bottom left quarter, there are some vague shapes in the water that don't look organic; the explorer's ships, maybe?  I'm just curious as to why they would be all the way over there, if that's what the shapes are; if they're not the explorer's ships, then what are they?

And yes, I realize that it's kind of crappy of me to accept Cthulhu and futuristic deep-sea divers, but get antsy over some black stuff in the background.  Humor me.  ^^;

......Epic....on the spot depiction of his fear factor, yet retaining the air of mystery that surrounds him in that watery sanctum of his......

Niice. I have Lovecraft's book of horror stories. But the stories arent very scary. Especially not the Cthulu one. I don't get how they are horror stories, but okay... anyway great piece of artwork!

I am so glad that someone else takes Lovecraft and his monsters seriously.
