Opus by Simaira Opus by Simaira
Huge personal project I started LAST SUMMER! Finally had time to go back and complete it.
I work very differently now, so it was weird working on it again.
Markers, Gouache, Pencil
It's a revisitation on the crowded illustration style I used in Mash.
Download for best viewing

Couple fun facts: I spilt a mug of tea on it at one point... Had to rock it. I also gave it a lipstick smooch (the lip prints). That gives you a scale comparison.

THANK YOU THANK YOU FOR THE DAILY DEVIATION! It's a childhood dream come true.

That is a very impressive picture.

My first thought though, was "wow, that ink-job must have hurt like hell. Badass octopus."

Fantastic! Was this inspired by the Long Earth by any chance? Because it is the first thing I thought of.
So many little things! I just want to find them all! I love the elephant and the leaping rabbit... the little turtle. Gah! So many thingies!!! The colours are fantastic. Well deserved DD.
