King Octo Most Precious Gem

Deep in the endless ocean abyss a Mighty King Rules them all!

His Name is King Octo and he loves Treasures!

The chosen color for this week #colour_collective was “Lava” a deep tone of red.

I decided to show to the world (with the courtsey of His Majesty) King Octo most precious gem, the invaluable “Lava Ruby”.

This illustration is my humble attempt to reproduce His Majesty in one of his many contemplative moments…

I used a solid color base with shadows obtained with the spray tool set on “shadow”. The turtle’s shell is done with many different strokes of color done with the G-pen casually to obtain the multi-color effect.

On the little picture on the left (one of King Octo favorite paintings) I used a solid color base and than I added multiple lines  to simulate brush strokes using the “Diagonal Line” tool (one of the decoration tool of CSP).

The light reflection on the ruby is done with the “sparkle C “(also in the decoration tool).

I obtained the sand effect with the spray tool set on soft and on tone scraping.

The color on the shell-throne is done with a gradient.

Happy Week-End Everyone!
