Here's a little something that's not from the HP Lovecraft series, though it could fit in there somewhere, as both he and I have a fondness for creepy underwater tentacled things. I am continuing to experiment with blocky shapes and flat application of color, and I find that adding rendered work and textures can really compliment them.
This is inspired by a piece I did years ago of an octopus monster with a transparent head and a human brain. Just a simple Sharpie drawing, but I taped off bits with a soft, removable tape and spray painted the surface with a blue sparkle paint. It's still in our bathroom and it's awesome. This is more or less a digital equivalent of that, but with a realistic octopus.
I will probably start drawing more real sea creatures in the coming weeks, refining the accuracy of the actual animals and applying it to the Lovecraft project as it enters the "old gods/monster" era. Look forward to the new sub-series, blocky graphics, flat colors and all.
Here's the original drawing, just for fun. No one is reading this.
