      @Rhiea wow. I've never thought about that. When I was painting this, I immediately put on the next layer. Next time I will just wait till it dry and then apply it. Thanks so much for the tips!

        I like all the different textures! The tentacles on its feet are cool! The lights and darks are good, but more differences in middle values would be nice. Also, if the inks looked smoother that would also make it look better! The mouth looks really awesome!

          thanks for your feedback! I'm having some trouble in getting the different shades of value but hope to improve it next time. :)

            No problem! Values can be hard so I get what you mean. Once you've let an area dry you can put another layer of ink over it to make it darker! So you can use that to create more difference in values!
