This lesson was called "Wings and roots" and I ended up painting tentacles! But since I just love cephalopodoes it had to be some image related to an octopus.
Background and the girl are not so in harmony like I would like them to be, but the tentacles are working beautifully. I love how playful the tentacles are. In the lesson some modelling or texture paste was to be used. I had none available but some sand structure paste. See the three dimensional effect? I think it worked really good for the skin of the octopus!
What I take from this one? Take a picture while the paper is still fixed on the block ;) Use more structural stuff and try to connect background and focal point more. But... in the end I just love her!
So here are more impressions of the details!
