A nice take, then! Love the color change, even if Lovecraft said it was green... And the design is pretty cool and original, yet kaiju-ish. Well done.

I like how the bottom jaw is just a lot of spiky tentacles

So much amazing.  And this is just as valid a depiction based on the description in the story as the giant octopus-baby with wings that most people think of!  Amazing.

This is amazing.
At first I thought you'd used a 3D modeler and painted on top of a screen-grab, but this looks amazing and it's all the more impressive knowing that this is completely 2D. 
The colours work wonderfully together.

This is one of the best versions of Cthulu I've seen in a long while, though he's a bit short on the eyes.

Probably the most unique take on Cthulhu that I've seen to date. Nicely done.

Very nice version of the Big C - King of the Perpetual Oversleepers ;)

Actually, my grandmother had a potplant when I was a kid that was a similar colour and had that almost scaly, spiky, rubbery, strange feeling to it... I'm going to start thinking my family is a cult now :D

This is an interesting take on Cthulu, I really like the colour choice.
I simply adore the whole design.

I really LOVE how detailed it feels, even though it's so loose when you zoom in! I have a lot to learn to get these things right >.< Awesome job!

I too wish it was so simple. Maybe it becomes simple with practice, but for some reason Photoshop makes strokes jagged and uneven when drawing zoomed out. It's one of the most annoying parts of the program.

I know about the pixelation on every other zoom level but I haven't experienced jagged lines while zoomed out.
I'd recommend searching that on google and see if there's a fix.
I have had some other issues with my cintiq/photoshop and a quick google search resolved the matter pretty easily.

-best of luck.
