The Deep Sea Dopefish by Simanion The Deep Sea Dopefish by Simanion
Whipped this one out today purely in the interest of not doing urgent uni work. Ah, that glorious feeling of guilt, lol.

The backround is a mixture of acrylics, watercolours and food dye, and the paper was made by my aunt and features various grass seeds..I didn't know if you can see them properly but they're pretty sweet grass seeds.

Pink and yellow parts coloured digitally. Size is A5.

I'm freaked out by the creatures of the deep. FREAKED. Weird giant alien fish with fucked up eyes and mega-jaws, and none of them look like they can take a joke.

But this guy's fine. He's dope actually. On dope. A dope. Dope. DOOOPE. ...Doop? No.

It's late. Hope you likey :bounce:

Thankyou! It was annoying to draw on dried acrylic paint with felt-tip pens..but I guess it was worth it lol.

Love this! The background is great and so is the character. It makes me want to get back to doing watercolours!

Every time I see a new submission by you, I squeal with glee a little on the inside in anticipation.

I think you have yet to let me down. :D

This is one of the most bizarre I've seen out of you in a while, I think. ;P

Yeah! You might think it's stupid, but that's what makes you an artist, right? Self-deprecating to the core! ;P

Also, bizarre IS good. And you're welcome. :D

Thanksh! Glad you do because I went through like four pens haha. Because I'd done the background using some acrylics, the pens weren't working properly on it. Note to self... :D
