The Indrigan Beast

My submission work for the Luminarium's latest exhibit, Legendary.
________________________________
Deep in the Indrigan Sea lies a beast armed with tentacles that can easily snap ships in two and cause tsunamis on the surface. Though the beast laid quietly deep underwater for centuries, one daring man decided to explore the deep trenches of the sea and got what he asked for.

This is incredible.

You're so versatile, you know that? :P

I love the style here. Very vibrant colors, but also has a very watercolor-ish feel. May I ask your process on this?

Thanks! xD yea I try to be very versatile cuz then I'll get bored lol

I can tell you about the process cuz I never recorded the process since it was a course assignment. First, I inked on a bristol sheet of paper the size 8.5x11 and then scanned it, printed the design on a larger sheet of paper at my college's printing services, painted it in black and white and orange for the octopus. The assignment had to be a monochromatic, but I also planned to make this painting for the Luminarium, so later on I colored it better on photoshop. That's it :) It's alot of going back and forth, lots of mistakes, for example, I wasted money printing it large and I forgot to whiten the background, so the print had gray all over it lol.

Octopi are so fascinating and scary at the same time. We had one locally at the aquarium that would let itself out at night, wander around the office, trash the place, then get back in its tank and lock the door, LOL! They thought someone was breaking in until they set up a video camera. SO smart!

That's something I admire and love about them; just how human they can be and how they have this curiosity. I want one as a pet lol. Also, it's amazing how they can fit through super tight spaces...amazing!

Beautiful composition, everything reads very clearly and its very dynamic. It tells a good story too, I always feel that the best illustrations have good narrative. One small thing I noticed is that the tentacle in the lower part of the image collides with the ink spout and it creates a bit of a tangent. It would be stronger if one overlapped the other. Small thing though, doesn't take anything away from the impact of the piece. : )

is this gauche and pen?

thank you! Wow, you've got a good sight for mediums! Indeed, it's guoache and pen. Some of the background is watercolor, but the watercolor reacted to the paper the same as the guoache so it appears uniformal.
