You frame the focal point so well, they eyes are popping out at you. Almost as if they where peering into your own eyes. The tentacles and hair are there but the tones don't create a distraction and the fact that the eye whites and the teeth are nearly the same colour help keep the eyes on the face. A very well pulled off picture that communicates well. Thought I would give some good feed back, well done.
I think it is kind of a shame that there will be text over this because 1)It is a really beautiful illustration, 2)I like this version of the colors a little better. It always bums me out when I have to make an illustration / design super dark so text will stand out. Anyways, great piece.
thanks! i haven't heard the word gnarly in a really long time, heh it's for a 6 panel digi pack, so its gonna look sick when its all finished. I have two more panels to finish... I'll post it all when it's done.
