Cthulhu Rising by jasonjuta Cthulhu Rising by jasonjuta
If I say that my somewhat extravagant imagination yielded simultaneous pictures of an octopus, a dragon, and a human caricature, I shall not be unfaithful to the spirit of the thing. A pulpy, tentacled head surmounted a grotesque and scaly body with rudimentary wings... It represented a monster of vaguely anthropoid outline, but with an octopus-like head whose face was a mass of feelers, a scaly, rubbery-looking body, prodigious claws on hind and fore feet, and long, narrow wings behind. This thing, which seemed instinct with a fearsome and unnatural malignancy, was of a somewhat bloated corpulence..." ~ H.P. Lovecraft, "The Call of Cthulhu"

One of the most incredible Cthulhu interpretations I've seen.  Trying to imagine something truly horrifying is so much more satisfying that just repeating the common "green guy with a tentacle head and wings" that is so often defaulted to for Cthulhu's appearance.
