Firefly Squid by FoxinRamen Firefly Squid by FoxinRamen
This piece of work took around 3 days to work on @ 3@ And I'm proud of every pixel of it :3 I don't think I've put this much effort in a digital art piece for a long time.. actually this may be my first time xD.

I know that some spots are glowing on the squid that normally wouldn't, but I didn't want to leave the bottom half empty in black xD I'm hoping that most parts are at least relatively accurate. I made sure to decently rely on references, as shown in WIPs on my Sheezy page.

I hope you guys really enjoy this piece, especially all y'all Cephalopod lovers like myself ;D
And a big thanks to Jaxxy [link] for some tips on the glowing effects :3

Or one of those glow papers, since the black parets wouldn't glow, but the rest would.

OOO that sounds like an awesome idea! I always considered making a shirt out of it or a poster, but I never really thought of giving it an extra OOMPH! with a glowing effect. I'll have to consider that in the future.

That is the coolest thing. ;-; It LOOKS like it is glowing. This would be so badass to put on a pearlescent paper.

I found you through your Twitter account, it was recommended to me and I saw the word "cephalopods" and was like I'M ON IT BABY and the moment I checked out your DA I was greeted by this lovely I was like... "Is that, a firefly squid, I LIKE YOU GIRL I LIKE YOU A LOT"
This just looks a-MAZING My only complaint is the watermark and that's saying something haha!!!! For your first attempt at a long-winded digital piece you couldn't have picked or done better.

First I'd like to say how awful I feel for not having this comment brought to my attention sooner, nearly a year after the fact, because WOW I don't get such lovely, extensive, and personal comments, it is awfully flattering!
I'm glad you found my work really nice, and after taking some consideration I thought I'd remove the watermark c:

I'd like to extend a VERY belated THANK YOU! :heart:
