INKtober31. – Day 10 – Happy (belated) World Octopus Day!

Missed World Octopus Day by two days, whoops. Better late than never. I tried something a bit different with this one and created the illustration on two layers (not in Photoshop). The background was created by wetting a piece of paper and dripping writing ink on to it, allowing the ink to bloom outwards.

The illustration was created on a separate piece of paper, pencilled on first, then cut out and finally filled in. All it needed then was a suitably excessive amount of spray mount to fix the two layers together. I could have just done it the Photoshop way but as INKtober31 is about just using ink (other than to improve scan quality) then it seemed like cheating…
