Here's someone's interpretation of it.

http://www.beyondhollywood.com/the-cloverfield-monster-revealed/

The pictures are close, but picture a smoother skin and a more rounded head.

Here's a small animated .GIF from the best look at the monster late in the film;

I found this drawing on the web, it's pretty good. I changed the eyes (well, the one eye you can see in this perspective) and made the mouth/teeth bigger. About half it's face is just a huge mouth of huge teeth. Behind the eye(s) and mouth, those are not ears. They puff in and out like gills or airbags.

He missed that there are a small set of arms attached to the mid chest. Also. the forearms are really long and skinnier, are jointed the reverse of the way a persons arms are jointed--best description would be the wing of a bat when it's folded up. In fact, the creature could stand up straight, but often seemed to crawl on the ground, pulling itself forward with those bat-like arms. The drawing doesn't do it justice, it's much much scarier.

Because of those batwing like arms and it's usually prone position, it can intantly get it's face (and mouth!) to ground level. It's not like Godzilla where it's head is always 300 ft up in the air and oblivious to the poor bastards on the ground.

The creature below the cloverfield monston is an enlarged drawing of the parasites that drop off the monster. I didn't get a good look at them, so I'll trust whoever drew this. I just remember lots of arms.

The one Cavalier posted in the closest in my opinion. That looks a lot like what I remember from the movie.

Just saw this today and loved it. I recommend you see this in the theater because the sound is key.:clap::beer:

Cloverfield” is nominally a monster movie, but mostly it’s a feature-length gimmick. It opens with some official-looking United States government text claiming that the following images were retrieved from what was once known as Central Park. The big (or rather only) idea here is that almost everything we subsequently see is the presumably unedited video material shot by Hud, who, though initially reluctant to pick up the camera, develops a mania for documentation once the monster strikes. So consummate is his dedication to his version of cinéma vérité that he keeps the camera plugged to his eye even while he’s running through hailstorms of debris, trying to cross a fast-collapsing bridge and witnessing friends melt down, bleed out and even die.

Just watched it on OnDemand, man it was nice, as for the movie experience

watched it on my 60 inch flat, with surround sound 7.1 klipsch (my movie theater btw) the greatest part was when that thing was walking around city, my house was shaking

awesome movie, my wife hated it her quote, "I hate unrealistic movies"
damn and i thought all movies were real

PS I thought the monster looked more like a bat when it tries to walk on its "elbows"
