Incredible texturing. It really brings that weathered, nautical feel to the piece.

Thanks! This is an oldie, and there are lots of aspects of it that I would approach differently now, but considering when it was done, I'm still proud of it.

Aw, what did those squids ever do to them?

Besides... y'know... terrorize them.

This looks amazing. I simply cannot tell this was done digitally at all. If you said it was done on paper with watercolor and ink, I would have believed you. I love the figures, the faces, the expressions, and the squidy goodness. Great job!

Well, it's not 100% digital. The color and texture is digital, but the drawing itself was pencil on 11 x 17 paper. Glad you enjoyed it.

The action in this is great. I love the movement in this image as well as the placement of all the figures. I suppose you could call the colors sepia tone? Anyway it fits very well. :thumbsup: I’m going to have squid nightmares!

Very nice. It is executed nearly flawlessly. I can barely think of a flaw.

This needs a daily deviation.

YAY! You posted it! I love the little squiddies in this, they're so cute and cuddly! :( Why are those mean men stabbing them? How rude.

Nemo (that is Nemo, right?) looks awesome, and like he's ready to make himself some homemade calamari. Wonderful job on this!

I should thank you, too, for encouraging me to post it........thank you! :D That is Nemo, and his favorite food is giant fried calamari, so obviously, they're just rounding up dinner.

Thank you very much. That's an old piece of parchment that I scanned and used as the base for my linework and color.
