Destructivity by phoenixdk Destructivity by phoenixdk
Yes! It's the attack of the headphone-wearing jellyfish! I don't know where this idea came from, but I think it turned out pretty well...

You know the drill on the technique, so I won't go into that, only say that the original is like the twice the size... I'm beginning to feel more sorry for the natural-media guys who can't make their scans look as good as the originals.

Thank you very much! I'm quite pleased with this particular picture, it's one of my all time favorites. It has a certain absurd charm somehow.

Well at least they get to listen to some good stuff whilst they are getting dissolved lol.

This is cool.

Favorite pic ever I think... and they're not getting dissolved, they have adapted to the out-of-the-water atmosphere and are ready to dominate all other species

This is great! I love the textures, the lines and the colours. The whole piece is just great. Care to elaborate a bit on the technique?

Um, sorry about the wait, I was AWOL. Anyway, this is all digital - I used the same technique here as I did on the similar early things, and they have it in the description, so go read that... in short, I used Painter 8.0:
Hand-sketch with pencil, then digital line-art using mostly vectors (so I ended up with a jagged sort of lineart) - this was done in Photoshop.
Then, on to Painter, where I added the base colors on the bottom layer using the sponge tool, and the the acrylic tool on top of that for the color on the jellyfish and stuff. I think that's it...

Your headphone wearing jellyfish rock my world. I don't have much to say except that. Oh, wait, this makes me think I should see it on the street somewhere, on a wall near the city centre or something. I don't know why. It's just cool like that.

Like it said in the description, I plan on making odder stuff from now. And swear more and write in a more stupid tone. Matter of fact, I'll start right now:

I hate people that don't fucking like me dumb fucks, they have no right to critisszise my punctuation
