Tea for Two and the Tentacle Love Show

Well, 2012 is off to a slow start.  Crazy things going on in the Boogervampire's neck of the woods. . . namely getting my first major illness out of the way for the year.  But more importantly, the first group exhibition of 2012 is rapidly approaching.  As you can see from the flyer, it's a tentacle themed show and although I've had my idea for a while now, I started ping ponging other ideas around in my brain while I was laying useless in my bed trying to get over the plague.  So after a couple weeks I decided that my original idea was probably best and to just stick with it.

So, with out further ado. . . here's the roughs and color comps for "Tea for Two".

And the work in progress image.   I chose the first color scheme.  Something about it felt "old time-y" and I really wanted it to have an inkling of a Victorian feel.  That and the show is called Tentacle LOVE Show, and you have to admit, it does feel the most Valentine's Day like.  The BG blue behind the octopus' heads is a little darker than I anticipated, so I think I'll have to adjust the purple of the feather's and top hat to make them pop just a little bit, but those are only in the base color phase, so I still have time.

If you live in the Los Angeles area, as always, feel free to stop by the Tentacle Love Show opening next Saturday evening, February 18th, 2012 at Monkeyhouse Toys in Silverlake.

Hmmm... I think you mean the 18th, right, Mary? Booo... I can't go that night... it's my dad's birthday dinner :(

This looks amazing! I can't believe how fast you're going! It's practically done! ;)

You are 100% correct, Tasha, it is the 18th, not the 19th. I corrected it. Thanks pointing that out and BOOO you won't be there! We can take the painting to Monkeyhouse together on Friday maybe. ;)
