I feel like I've seen this somewhere before. I immediately think of the temp tattoos you get out of quarter machines. Still an awesome piece though.

I really enjoy this piece, it's got a lot of lovely flow and motion in the tentacles, and your choice to give the skull inhuman teeth really adds a sense of otherworldly eeriness.

sweet... The bit under the eye sockets looks to be in a different style than the rest of the piece, though I think it draws attention to that area. Overall great work.

-I think the shading on the right tentacle(middle) could be darker on that inner curl.

So I guess I should let you know. I liked the drawing so much I did tattoo it on my left shoulder. I changed it a bit mostly to fit the navy's regulations on tattoos. Hope you guys like it.

Hey, thanks for letting me know! Looks good! and you're not the first one that I know of either - I had a scuba guy show me a facebook photo a few months ago. Really warms the heart knowing so many people like this picture that much.

I'm trying to figure out things to put underneath it to make it into a half sleeve. If you have any idea's I would like your input. I would even enjoy it if you would draw some things out.

Well - seeing what you've chosen to do with it - might I suggest the 'tears' flowing either into a river, or some crashing waves containing some imagery of shipwrecks.
I could draw out a black and white for $15 if you like?

so what other things would you have in mind for this drawing other than a river or an ocean.

mainly shipwreck type imagery; I keep thinking that there has to be some kind of nautical mess - I'm open to any ideas that you might have. I apologize for taking soooo long to get back to you! I've been doing some major remodeling and haven't been able to get back to my desk in days. Hopefully things have settled now!
