IF (Illustration Friday), 10/10/14 the topic was Octopus. This topic was difficult for me because I honestly lacked any inspiration for it. After some brainstorming I eventually came up with an idea that was satisfactory enough for me to keep my interest. I decided to illustration Lovecraft's 'Cthulhu' for this piece, since the description of the alien deity included his head being that of an octopus (hence why I only illustrated his head as well). I wanted to make this piece more simplistic, and decided to utilize a different style that I believe created a more haunting visual. I'm pleased with the final outcome of this piece, and may utilize this strategy with future illustrations. The piece is entirely digital done in Painter.
