This image was a challenge for me! First was trying to figure out some of the perspective of the characters and then the console of the submarine (which now as you can see got covered up by tentacles. It got to a point where I was happy with the line work but the colours just weren’t coming together. Then I played around with the idea of those tentacles wrapping over. I think what the added foreground shapes give it some depth and break up all the tiny shapes and elements I had going.
Fun image that gave me a bit of a run around. I wouldn’t mind exploring these two characters some more though. The over-top, semi flamboyant underwater sea captain kept me coming back to the picture.
