Tentacle Deeps 44
Tuesday, December 4th, 2012
More tentacles! More shiny paint! It must be Tuesday. I used three different paints here with very subtle effects to the camera, but that are quite obvious to the naked eye. The first was the background in a green that blends into the green paper until the light shifts and it becomes a bright gold. Then the tentacles are in two different shades that turn from green to bronze, different shades and different angles, but almost match.
The overall effect is mysterious and ancient, hinting at tarnished bronzes or possibly green tentacles covered in iridescent slime as they rise up through the golden sunlight, seeking who knows what.

At most angles, I got the tentacles as all green or all bronze, but here you can see how the front layer is green and the back set bronze, and the background turns a warm, bright gold. Below, you can see it in its frame, ready to grace your bookshelf, desk, or wall.
