Cthulhu Rising by AlexRuizArt Cthulhu Rising by AlexRuizArt
Cthulu Lives! This is the finished image for my Creature Design video tutorial, available for download now!

Based on H.P. Lovecraft's story, this creature was described as a gargantuan horror, making men go insane from just looking at it!...rad, I know:D

Done entirely in photoshop in about two days. In my video, you'll see me create this from scratch and talk in detail about the process. Video tutorials on environment design and brush creation are there as well.

Do you want to be a professional concept artist?

Whoa!  That is awesome.  You've captured a new interpretation of Dread Cthulhu.  Not easily done.

I'm surprised it could make men go mad by looking at it! Out of the strangeness of it all, this beast is bizarre yet gorgeous! I could so imagine being the protector of some fantastic fortress. I would love to be it's best friend; it is so beautiful. And, then again, I am a deranged animal lover. Even something like this is lovable in my eyes. Or maybe it's already driven me mad ...

If you read Lovecraft's The Call of Cthulhu and go a little deeper into his stories, you'll soon learn to not like it.
(The story online)
If you like it, I suggest buying the Necronomicon from the Orion Publishing Group.

Very nice version of Cthulhu. It perfectly captures the "Cosmic Horror" kind of theme.

I love this depiction of Cthulhu; I prefer it greatly over the somewhat ridiculous depictions of him as an obese octopus monster. In this picture, he truly conveys the horror and ancient power that Cthulhu is supposed to have.

I was going to favourite and go, but this deserves a comment.

Amazing use of texture. I love how unique this take is; most Cthulu interpretations I've seen involve smooth green skin. I think I could believe I would go insane if I saw this in real life. Impressive :)

i noticed in your video that you use the black and white setting in ps, thing you can do that is much fast is make a new layer and fill it with black and take down the opacity
