Cthulhu Saves by CitizenWolfie Cthulhu Saves by CitizenWolfie
Just taking a break from the tits for a moment. This is the sort of stuff I used to do. This is probably my favourite thing I've done for a while.

In December I was listening to Metallica's "Thing that should not be" and decided to look up the short story it was based on. For those that don't know, that story is:

The Call of Cthulhu by H.P. Lovecraft.

Now I'm not a fan of sci-fi but this story was great and really got my mind going. It's completely chilling. But I liked how there were cults dedicated to this entity and thought I'd do a picture. Cthulhu will save us all.

*By the way, no offence intended to any of my Christian watchers. I wanted to juxtapose this ultimate horror with a figure seen as the ultimate good.

Great stuff! I'm a huge fan of Lovecraft myself. In fact, I'm the founder and leader of the Cthulhu Cult.

I am not offended even if it were to be an anti-Christian image. I am tolerant and do not expect everyone to share my same beliefs.

On another note I believe Cthulu is worshipped out of fear rather than love. The worshippers believe if they worship Cthulu that they shall be spared from his anger. This is not the case. Cthulu is a destroyer and shall consume everything. Space, time, and of course, life.
