Rampaging Cthulhu

Sharon 23 Oct 2020

Hi i painted this for my son's birthday. I had never heard of Cthulhu so I'm way out on a limb here. It was definitely a different sort of challenge and I guess that's what I love about learning how to paint using the bob ross tutorials. I not only found something to pass the time (im a 2nd time widower)but whether I'm good at it or not I've found something I love to do. I think that Bob Ross would love the fact that his shows are still inspiring people to not only try it but to build up the confidence to try something totally out of their comfort zone such as this was for me. Happy Painting out there!!

You've absolutely hit the nail on the head!

Cthulhu is a mind breaking deity from H.P. Lovecraft's books and stories. Only looking at him would shatter a human mind in thousand pieces. I think you've managed to capture this pretty fantastic!

Well it scares me! Looks like a heck of a lot of work involved in this one, really well done.

All hail Cthulhu! This is absolutely epic! Iā€™m sure your son loved it. This is amazing :)

This is really beautiful. The color combination is incredibly striking. Amazing work!

Before I read your comment about your painting, I thought, "Wow someone really did a great job painting Cthulhu, how impressive!" So, yeah, I'd say you knocked this one out of the park! Had to send a photo of it to my sister because she is an even bigger Lovecraft fan than I am.

Wow! Thank you so much for your awesome comments! Im trying to teach myself and painting alone all the time,its hard to find the right brush strokes to make what im looking for,but any advice is greatly appreciated and its so nice to communicate with others who enjoy painting too.Happy painting out there!
