Cthulhu tree by jonjacobsen Cthulhu tree by jonjacobsen
I don't have creativity for photos... many ideas are running over my head... but they're just for some manipulations
and i don't have time for manipulations.. school is killing me and i just want to relax in weekends, also i'm waiting for the evil ~Amelee mwahahha...

So.. as you know i've been alone these days on my house..
my books are full of weird (kinda abstract) drawings...
i just let the pencil go... he draws with the help of my hand....

until i got this thing... strange eh?¿¿¿???

The tools i used here were: Ink pencils, coffee and the big help of photoshop.. because i didn't like the result of the painting... photoshop make my days :D

the tittle idea came from ~azmodeo, so.. don't ask me what's a Cthulhu tree, because i'll answer you "i don't have any fucking idea"...

alright.. i'm going to school... take care!

This is cool! We're doing a play at my school called "Love Stories During The Armageddon of a Citrus Fruit" and it features Cthulhu who is at one point depicted as the tree! This is so neat!

Have you ever read or heard of the play perchance?

shrunkendesigner Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2008
WOW this piece is cool. Love the texture of the background.
Cleofide Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2008
Your drawing is superb. It is in real harmony with the spirit of Lovecraft. You really understood that there is nothing human in the hells described Lovecraft. Your tree is completely dehumanized, neither made by the men, nor for the men, as Lovecraft would have depicted it. I guess you have read the Call of Cthulhu… Your tree reminds me all the horrific and nightmarish feelings of these short stories…

May Nyarlathotep be with you.

el cafe es bkn pa pintar :D ademas que deja un olor riiico :P
geneis99 Featured By Owner Feb 17, 2007
u need to practice your drawing technics more, the shading could be better, though, the naive style it gives it is intresting in some parts, where it gives your drawing unatural textures and feel...
your composition could also be better, if i look at your photographies, you usualy dont have any problems building a intresting and strong composition....this one is kind of too heavy in the center compared to the bottom part...but i like a lot the work u did in this bottom part with just enough lines to admit a perspective and a ground...
and what kind of paper to do use? because i used coffee once too on a normal sketching paper, and it kind of wore it out realy quickly...
thank for sharing your art with us...
jonjacobsen Featured By Owner Feb 17, 2007  Professional Photographer
Thanks :)
Well yes, thanks for the critiques! I'll keep them in mind in the next time i draw something :)

I used this paper [link] ... i dunno how you call it in english =/
