Orange Vulture

More birds, you say? Yes, I thought I’d continue to practice midtowns and halftone dots with out carrion eating friend here. Apologies for the short post, gentle reader, but it’s been a long week.



I follow a very cool Instagram account by the nameĀ of OctoNation, and account that is all about octopi art and media. They posted a very cool sculpture of an octopus that really highlighted the eyes, and it inspired me to draw this.

I wanted to use the wash as a background element so the stark contrast would really foreground the octopus. The wash also makes an appropriate background for the octopus, who is able to squirt ink.
