A commission that took a while to get around to doing.

whoa that's impressive! honestly, i somehow feel something in common with that drawing

Holy shit! This is pretty incredible. Some really striking shading, and tons of little details that make it interesting to look at. I love pieces like this.

The one little nitpick I have, however, is how it's cropped on the left side. I feel like it would look so much better without part of the Octopus' head being cropped off like that.
Aside from that, though, this is fantastic! Great stuff. :)

Thank you for the review and the praise on the detail, much appreciated. The unfortunate cropping is indeed bothersome but unfortunately it is exactly as it appears on the paper. On the final sketch that I used as the base for the octopus was smaller and made for a weaker composition overall; so I made it bigger but that meant it had to go off the page. So yeah I wish I had the foresight to use a bigger sheet of paper or shrink the drawing, but hey, lesson learned the next time. Glad you like it!

What a astonishing piece, the details, the shading, and the whole image is just great, however the bottom part is a bit blurry probably from the scan or the camera, with that said this image is front page worthy even with that!

JackDCurleo responds:

Thanks man really appreciate the comment! Also on the blurriness at the bottom thank you for pointing that out I missed that until just bow, I'll reupload a better picture when I get the chance. And again thank you
