A simple piece - steps

I accidentally overwrote my incredible prose for this step-by-step of a black-and-white illo, but you'll get the idea from the pictures alone, I hope! (sorry!)













That's it! The whole thing took about 3 hours, and probably would have been a lot less without all those tentacles. ;)

Very cool! Thanks for sharing your process. So great to see a way of making a finished piece that is so different to how I would approach it. Very informative!

Looking forward to seeing more.

It's fascinating to see how you work, Patrick. :) I especially love how the rocks turned out in this image. I'd love to see more.

Thanks! I do love rendering rocks, for some reason (probably a fascination with Maxfield Parrish). I'll be sure to post more like this soon. :)

Wow this is great! I'm just reading 'The Shadow over Innsmouth' by Lovecraft at the moment, and this picture really echoes the H.P.L vibe nicely. Top stuff.
