I like how the main focus is on the bottom of the frame, it shows you put thought into the piece's composition. That being said, I feel as though it would be more powerful if there was a bit more to look at in the top half of the frame. Nothing major, it could be an island, some birds, a boat, another water Pokemon, or whatever, but a little something to make it seem more like a living scene.

I like the pose and position of the Tentacruel, and how you put some Magikarps swimming under it. It adds a bit of depth to the piece, which is nice. I don't know what feeling you were aiming for with this piece, but I think it could be a bit more ominous if there was a gradient of some sort put overtop of the Tentacruel. Something a bit darker in the back and lighter up front, so it would seem as though it's using the water as a cloak to lurk its way to you, the viewer.

All in all the idea is definitely there and it's composed nicely. It's refreshing to see a thought-out scene rather than just a character with a colored background. With a bit of work, I think you could really enhance the mood of it to make it even more powerful than it already is!
What do you think?

I'm going to start by saying that I think the colors and lighting are both fantastic in this, and I honestly don't think those need much improvement at all.

You've portrayed a good sense of depth with the Magikarp underneath the Tentacruel. It's a pretty nice detail, and makes the ocean feel alive instead of empty. The scene overall is original and convincing; there is an actual sense of lurking by the Tentacruel, as your title says.

The only thing I feel that could use a little work would be the skyline. While it's well drawn as is, it seems a little bit empty, and adding something more to it would make the drawing seem more alive, in my opinion.

Overall, I believe this is very well done, and a few more details added in would make it even more successful.
