Excited to participate in the Weekly drills. My idea for this drawing was a deep diver coming across this intimidating-looking pirate octopus. I am still new to The Rookies and found out about the Weekly drill only on Friday. Also, I wanted to see what I could come up with.
It is a very nice challenge since I haven't really drawn any octopus. In the second image, you can see the reference that inspired me for the mood and feel of this piece. I do feel like I overdid the lighting, but I am practicing improving that.
For the upcoming Weekly drills, I want to focus more on lighting en texture rendering.
Can't wait for the next challenge!
