Sea Life by KiwiCocktail Sea Life by KiwiCocktail
I'm unbelievably proud I managed to finish this drawing! :D

The idea came from... I don't know. I've been so inspired by art like this for a long time, but I never thought I could draw anything like it myself. I'm just glad I proved myself wrong!

The sea theme kinda happened on its own. I didn't plan anything and had forbidden myself from sketching... I wanted to see what an impulsive drawing would look like :)

Tell me what you think of this new style! C:

Tools: Copic Multiliner 0.3, Copic Multiliner 0.05, Copic Multiliner Brush
Time taken: 10-15 hours?

EDIT: Adjusted contrast

nice one.  you keep my eyes moving around the composition and then I get lost in little details for a little while before being drawn into the next area.
