work in progress by BrianKesinger work in progress by BrianKesinger
Here's a look at a work in progress screenshot of Otto and Victoria on Safari. It will be one of the illustrations in my new book, traveling with your Octopus. For these illustrations I use Photoshop and as you can see a lot of layers. After the coloring is done I will import some tea textures on watercolor paper to help the piece feel a little more organic and a lot less digital.

This is by far the cutest picture I've seen. You made an odd pairing of animals really work well. I love the contentment on those lions. Absolutely perfect.

I dunno why lions can act like that, but they do :confused:  No wonder why some folks think they want one of those for a pet, but it can't work :XD:  Even with an octopus for assistance.

Just wonderful! I especially love the sense of weight of the lions head on that of the octopus, and also the visual texture and details of the octopus tentacles. And those emotive facial expressions of sheer pleasure...what a delight! Beautifully done so far. :D (Big Grin)
