Tentaclely Thing

You know how sometimes you get a graphic idea in your head and it HAS to come out…..

Scan 3

…twice…

Scan 2

….thankfully the “tentaclely” period was brief, although the 50s/60s wallpaper inspired patterns are a recurring theme… the second attempt nearly blew a few valves… Drawing till 1 in the morning then getting back to it the next day, only to find that you can’t quite remember which bit of tentacle is attached which…. had to go thru the whole damn thing like a kids activity book maze and number the each bit!…. shoulda taken pics… it looked like paint by numbers!

…er… and its probably worth mentioning that HP Lovecraft mentions Dunedin, NZ in his marvelous historical document “The Call Of Cthulhu”…. something about drums booming in the surrounding hills… was fully expecting the big guy to turn up yesterday…. had a sacrifice picked out and everything!

*sigh*

    What beautiful colors! Do you have a favorite sketch?

  2. My favourite sketch is usually the one I’ve just finished!
    (colours by Caran Darche…. their water colour pencils rule supreme!…. and you can beef ’em up after you scan ’em… perfect.)
