Pure comics version I really like your proposal! His tentacles look like rat tails or kinds of earthworms, scary! ;)

Thanks EndDandy. Interesting observations re: tentacles...The octopus is my favorite animal and I know how to draw those tentacles well. But for some reason I was drawn to render them the way that I did.

funny you mentioned the eyes - More than conceptually, I was partly inspired by your Lysanna work...the detail work you did on the eyes. I made the effort to put some detail in this piece as well.

Nice linework and values, the contrast between the fine detailed lines in the tentacles and the big blocks of black in the toilet and such. Good entry!

I purposely looked to compose each element so that it would have a distinct graphic effect...the values, the shading, hatching (which I'm a big fan of btw), and even the placement of each tentacle and how it curves around in space.

thanks...I need to finish work more often ;)

A lot of times my drawings never leave the sketchy-doodley stage or colors never get worked in to a finished state.

I'm glad I finally got to spend more than 30 minutes on a drawing for Odyssey II ^_^ I also stayed away from digital painting and concentrated on pure illustration.
