Nautical Nonsense by pupukachoo Nautical Nonsense by pupukachoo
Homework. Layout class. Assignment: Octopus and shipwreck.

This assignment made me hungry. I really like nautical themes even though i rarely explore them. Maybe I will more. Next assignment calls for a pig and an ox having a picnic.... hmmm.

I love the angle, almost like a fish-eye lense the way it arcs to the left. I also dig the green tones of the water (did you use watercolors?), and the flare of the sun in the corner with the sun beams running down... It really makes you feel like you're under the water.

Very well done, I hope it gets good marks!

Beautiful beautiful beautiful. I like the flow of the image and that sort of fogging of the background is a technique I never got the hang of. Excellent work.

This is really amazing!!! I like how some of the tentacles wrap around the pole. The octopus seems to be playing with it.

I feel its important to be able to have a wide variety of style and touch, but this isn't so much a severe change as that I usually upload works of this type to another gallery. I"ve been recently thinking, though, that maybe I don't want to keep up two pages.

I'm sure this painting is going to remind people of something else constantly, nautical themes with octopi and sunken ships aren't stunningly original, but that was the prompt so I chose to play with an extreme angle.

I don't think that's something I wish. :fear:

Seriously, I love how we're looking from behind the octopus and not at it. It isn't a perspective I've seen too often. :)
