a girl and her pet by loish a girl and her pet by loish
i haven't been drawing AT ALL since i finished my graduation animation, so i just forced myself to draw today. devoid of inspiration, i decided to re-draw a picture i drew when i was 15 or so: [link]

however, i found it boring so i did what any reasonable person would do: i added an OCTOPUS. the result: the next installment in the girl + aquatic creature series. haha.

drawn in photoshop CS3 with an intuos3 tablet, in about 5 hours. textures from , tips on how to use textures can be found here - [link] and for other tips check out my f.a.q - [link]

have you tried it yet? everyone kind of has a different approach in terms of layers i think.. i always like to keep it simple with one, otherwise i totally lose track of the color scheme :]

Kinda, I do layers but I'm not sure if its how you layer. I jus a pantone solid coated palette when I'm sticking to strick color schemes (a color library, which im sure you know about)

I'm still learning how to use my tiny tablet, while hoping my boss doesnt come around the corner while im drawing. lolz

Hi, I was inspired to use your art in a youtube video about the magic of storytelling. You can see it here: [link]

Sorry that I didn't ask permission beforehand, if for any reason you'd like me to remove your picture, let me know and I'll do so immediately and reupload it. Thanks!

When I lived in Italy, we would walk past the bins with baby octopi in the markets. I used to BEG and BEG and BEG to keep one as a pet :}
