octopus is best sea creature. I looooooooooooove how you did the background, and the detail on the octopus is so nice. I can kinda see the light and the lines are crisp and clear, but don't really feel that way. They just seem like a natural extension of all its bumps and cups. I love it.
I wish I had a workspace where I could try doing all this neat traditional stuff I see people doing. It's really nice, though. Good on you.
There's nothing wrong with rushing a little in artwork. I find a lot of my best stuff is done in an impulsive, on the fly kind of way. I mean, my best stuff isn't as good as anything of yours, but it's a start.
Honestly I used the kitchen workspace for tea staining, now living in a shared accommodation I don't think my house mate is so keen on the mess I make, but I could be worse.
Thank you very much. Definitely, be a little free. You're talented. I find it takes a lot of time and effort to get even pass you own standards. A few months away from finishing University and being chucked into the real world.
Thanks for the compliment. I'm two years out and... well, it's nice to hear I'm good at something when a 3.9 and a bunch of honors don't count for much. Then again, I never thought of myself as an artist. My high school art teacher told me I had no vision and was unoriginal. ..and here I am doing fanart on dA. Guess she was right.
Anyway... long story short... this is really inspiring. One of my favorite animals done in a style I totally didn't expect. And it's super nice to learn it was done by such a nice person. Thank you so much for your replies.
That's quite all right. When you have a talent, even if you do not wish to base your life around it, it is nice to make a hobby out of the subject. It gives you a sense of break. There's nothing wrong with doing fanart, I unfortunately have no time to do any.
Thank you ever so much. It's nice to have a conversation with someone so pleasant as yourself, it's been lovely talking to you.
