Calls images of Songbird of Bioshock Infinite. A fantastically unique take, awesome work.

This is a very original vision of Cthulhu and set in the 1700s?! VERY COOL. I love this. Great work.

I forgot, I was going to ask about the strange cluster of pixels near the bottom left.  Is that some part of the wave, or something that's not supposed to be there?

This is one of the best depictions of Cthulhu I've ever seen, both in design and execution.  It looks recognizable as Cthulhu yet also very different from the standard form.  It looks like something you'd see in Blue Planet.  The transparent tentacles are a nice touch.  The sepia-tone is an odd choice for a composition like this, but it adds to the eerie atmosphere.  This might sound strange, but one of the things that impresses me most is the ship.  It's very detailed and lit in a lifelike manner.  When I first saw this, I though you had taken the ship and possibly the waves from a stock photo and shopped on the rest, but it looks like you painted every single element from scratch.  This realism really adds to the impact of the painting.
