Artist's Statement

*Print Version added*

Best Friends forever - A girl and her tentaculous friend.
This was another study based on a reference photograph (licensed from istockphoto ) and in a way a tribute to my friend Serge Birault, whose best friends are also tentacles (what a coincidence:) )

Initially I wanted to build the tentacle with Sculptris but ended up realizng that it is easier done painting directly in PS.
Had a fun time painting this, the tentacle is painted from scratch, the lighting and lower part of the girl is completely constructed upon the base and painted all over matching the realistic / comic style painting look.
