calamari by beckycloonan calamari by beckycloonan
took me 3 days off and on to color this, i was like.... kept giving up and then going back to it, then computer would crash, then i'd give up.. then i'd go back to it. what a vicious cycle!

anywas, photoshop over brush and ink drawing.

for everyone who asks when this comic is coming out: i'm not starting until next year!!!!!!!! so it's gonna take a while!!!!!

You have a fantastic gallery and one of the best drawing styles I've seen for a long time. Perfect comic art. Good luck with your projects esspecially this east coast one, because from what I've seen it deserves to do well.

Mmm...yes, your kung fu is strong, young one. You should take a gander at my gallery - perhaps we are distantly related mental kin.
Your persistence paid off in this piece - i really like the way the reds and greens play off each other (you know, without it looking Christmassy).
Background tendrils are especially nice.
yathosho Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2004
slowly making my way to your gallery, this is my favourite so far
EricGravel Featured By Owner Sep 21, 2004  Professional General Artist
Awesome job!!! I love the color combination that you used, it adds so much drama to the illustration, this couldn't be more perfect. +fav.
pouncy Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2004
This picture almost made me ruin a perfectly fine pair of pants. Nice indeed.
yuria Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2004
I like the way you color your art - simple and calm colors put together in contrasts, but with great taste. This red-and-green combination here disturbs me the most. Beautifull.

Top notch illustration as always. As for the coloring; I really like the coloring of the tentacles but I'm not crazy about her being all in reddish hues. The type at the top should go as well, doesn't add much to the piece. Looking forward to when it hits the stands. :)

I'll have some sauce with that XDDD

Lovely work as I've come to expect.
It seems squid is in the zeitgeist, and deservedly so!

Awesome art piece.
I like the detail and composition!
Feels retro late 60's post 70's style.
Cool art style too.
This would make a sweet poster. :nod:

strangledcry Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2004  Professional General Artist
Cool shit. I loves the tenticles. Squids seem to be a reoccuring item in this comic. :D Which is awesome.
ninja-taco Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2004
beautiful picture seems worth the years wait for your comic.good luck
uniformgrey Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2004
I flat out love the balance in this and the palette you chose.

You really have a great handle of brush and ink control and I really like the character design of this piece of both the girl and how you handled the tentacles.

Sorry your computer was being a pain, but I'm glad that you stuck with it so that you could show the results.
