The Original Cthulhu Image

This apparently is the drawing that HPL made when writing "The Call of Cthulhu."

Looks like something I might do.

Although it is crude, I think artists should take note when trying to make their own images. THIS is the author's vision. Cthulhu is actually only a product of HPL's mind and this is what he had in mind.

[EDIT: Link added to give Jimmy Akin credit for the image and the story.]

He's actually kind of cute.

Yeah, he's not really scary. Kinda like MAJ(P) John in combat gear. We know he's supposed to look scary, but he's not quite carrying it off.
