Illustration Friday - Octopus

Octopus
In Clearprint's Vellum Field Guide Journal
using Pigma Microns and Dylusions Ink
for Illustration Friday

The front side of the page is where I drew the outline of the wine glass and his head peeping over the water. Colored in the stem, the water in the bowl of the glass and the top of the Octopus's head. Then wrote Octopus on the bottom portion of the glass.
*** Note to self: wait for pen to dry on vellum before adding wet medium***

On the backside of the page I drew the entire Octopus along with a small sunken ship and painted him in.
