I’m debating whether this should go onto a 20x20cm vinyl plate or a 30x30cm. Currently I’m leaning towards the larger plate to so I can increase the level of detail and impact.
I am unsure whether this one will make it onto a plate. I have worked up two variations in PhotoShop playing with the orientation on the ‘canvas’ and moving the arm to the other side.
The third sketch is only a study from one of the photos I took whilst squidding (squid fishing, possibly a made-up term). I was keen to understand the different tentacle (8) and arm (2) lengths and how/ where they attached onto the head.
Side note: I am currently going through a black sketchbook phase for working up drawings for relief prints.
This was all I managed to get done since I was baking bread, one loaf all afternoon, before settling done to dinner and a movie (at home).
