Cthulhu Commands the Sea

Piece description from the artist

This is an original surrealism fantasy oil painting by Christopher Clark, fine artist. HP Lovecraft gave us a fantastical world of science fiction in the early-mid 1900s, and his most enduring character by far is Cthulhu. Part man, octopus, and dragon, Lovecraft described the character to induce madness just by looking upon him. I wanted to paint him just because of the sheer challenge of painting such a fantastical creature – very unlike anything I'd previously done. This piece was created for Comicon 2016 in Denver.
