Cthulhu Rising by Osmatar Cthulhu Rising by Osmatar
Several people have asked for the a high-quality original of this piece I originally posted in my elfwood gallery almost a decade ago. I've been looking for it for months now, scouring through scores of backup CDs, and the best psd file I can find is exactly this size! What may have happened is that I accidentally saved the original after scaling it down to a size small enough for posting online. Back then resolutions were lower, screens were smaller and online galleries had harsh size limitations. This is one thing I absolutely hate about the digital medium. You'd never accidentally shrink your paint or pencil original to thumbnail size. :(

So anyone hoping for a good-sized print of this, I'm so sorry to disappoint you. This is the best I can provide you with. I'm pretty crushed by all of it myself. I hope you can still find ways to enjoy this art in digital form, even if it's now not large enough to fill even half the screen.

It really looks like something that lives in perpetual darkness and it was just lit by a light from the deep sea submarine.

Fabulous picture of cthulu. Perfect colour (like being deep deep undersea). Real sense of something being utterly alien.

Don't worry, it's very unlikely you'd be taking a midnight swim anywhere near R'Lyeh. :D

love your Lovecraftin creature works, and This one is definately one of my favourites? Atmospheric lighting and the low saturation green really gives the pic nice feeling of dread.

Thanks. :) I was experimenting with different lighting back then, and the image of Cthulhu emerging from the supernatural darkness of his crypt in R'Lyeh offered a great opportunity for that. It's still my own favourite of my Lovecraft-themed works.
