Illustration Friday - Under the Sea



What the heck is that thing the octopus is waving at? And more importantly why are its tentacles all wonky? Who knows. I was just playing around with brushes in photoshop.

Love the linocut feel of this illo. Is he waving at a passing squid? Agree - colours are divine.

Wow! This is lovely, Jenn. I think he's waving at a sea-going, scuba-diving pig! I like the style here, it has such a great texture and the color is wonderful as always.

I like the thick black lines. It makes all the colors seem crisper.

I love your lino/woodblock style. Very crisp and clean, great colours!

Great, Jenn! Does this go with the sunbathing walruses you had on the scbwi board? Love the style!

Fantastic! LOVE the coloring..and, the linocut effect! It is always fun to see what we can come up with using Photoshop!

They don't look wonky to me, Jen. Very nice for a quick play with PS!

Hey...The Iceland trip looked like a blast! Thanks for sharing your trip thoughts and details. And welcome home!

AWESOME Illo! I agree with Lee, the colours are (perfectly) bold!

Thanks, No Liz, I didn't intend for this to go with the walrus picture but, now that you mention it, they do kind of look like they go together.

I like the idea of an octopus waving at whatever floats by... Great picture.
