All Hail Cathulhu by behindinfinity All Hail Cathulhu by behindinfinity

:new: This shirt is now available at!
Store link :pointr: [link]

Couldn't help participating given the theme of this contest Cute Monsters. Too fun to let it pass!

Here is my contribution to dA's current pool of adorable abominations. I took an embodiment of terror and combined it with the quintessential example of cuteness. All hail the terribly lovable... Cathulhu! :lol:

What sound do you think Cathulhu makes? I imagine something between purring and gurgling :p

5 colors, gradients are halftoned.
Everything drawn in Photoshop, including background texture (using default Natural brushes).

Thank you to everyone for the support and appreciation!

You should think about submitting this to TeeFury or Qwertee or something, since you didn't win (shame on the judges, this was by far MY favourite design... and probably the only one I'd buy)... I know I would buy it if you made it available as a t-shirt. =]

Aw, the fact that you liked it that much already means a lot to me! :D

And actually, I've just been contacted by another company who is interested in producing this design. :) We'll see how that works out! I'll make sure to let you know!

“Cthulhu seems like kind of a wuss if he can be trapped by a sinking island or killed by a boat."

"That’s just because the stars aren’t right. When the stars are right, it don’t matter how many boats hit him. He’ll sink whole continents and lick off the people like salt off a pretzel."

"Says you."

"You keep talking smack like that, he’s gonna eat you first.”
