Huge Octopus by acmelabs Huge Octopus by acmelabs
How big is a huge octopus?

Long time without a illustration like Heaven
Most part of my time is working on motion design, web layouts and other design related stuff.
So little time to sketch or paint something.

FULL VIEW is a must. :)

Don't be shy to :+fav: ... everybody loves a octopus. Eekks!:bleh:

Bye!

wow, how long have you had your graphics tablet?, i invested in one recently - so far ive used it to "trace" photos, now im starting to freehand with referance - but i get frustrated with the hair and thus far havent spent more than 2 hours on a picture

i was just wondering if theres any hope for me to become this good, if you could check my gallery ( [link] ) then maybe you could give me an estimate on how long it will be 'till i get this good (if i ever do)

(sorry for the long comment)

hi! Almost 2 years.
Some works took days to finish. Some artists call a 2 hours work "speed paint".
This deviation I spend something like 8 to 10 hours. i dont know exactly coz i worked a few hours each day.

Your gallery have some good works. The Frankie Boyle portrait, and "smile 14" are great examples. It looks your on a good way :)

A few tips i can recommend:
1. Explore the brushes. And the possibilities of them using the pression-sensitive of the tablet.

2. Explore the layers. I use a lots of over-painting in additional layers. Explore the blend modes of the layers too (overlay, multiply, screen,...)

3. Search for tutorials here on deviantArt. There's a lot of good references, and it worked to me ;)

Well, keep going!
Bye!

I'm busy doing lots of design works, and most of those works dont deserve to be in a gallery. But ill publish new stuff soon.
