SEALIFE series...

so... interesting challenge... i'm doing a set of sealife pieces [in the same direction as the floating beasties pieces i did a month or so ago] for a my buddy rob adam's son elliot's room [did that sound right?].

after countless reference googling & sketches, to get the anatomy/ parts down i still wasn't there... there not looking "patenaude" enough... heh... kinda funny to be challenged to make your drawings look more like your drawings. but it's tough... usually what i draw, comes straight outta my head, and there it is- spontaneous and all. taking a given and crafting your own version, is proving to be a little tougher than i'd thought, but... I'M UP FOR THE CHALLENGE! here's what they're looking like presently- i figure ~65-75% of the way "there"...





you might recognize the octopus- he's the closest i got on the first round, but i still need to tweak him out a bit + add some silly props to them all + work on their eyes. will post more progress as i go.
