Oct-O-Lantern - Wallpaper by grimcinder Oct-O-Lantern - Wallpaper by grimcinder
Some of you requested it...so here it is....and I just learned how to make things all glowy-like in photoshizzop so I thought I'd try it out.

YOU SIR have made my night. This combination is absolutely thrilling (particularly being a lover of both halloween and octopi)! 

I'm almost surprised you didn't go with pumpkin roots/vines for the tentacles, but the style is so flawless the way it is. Very, very nice line weights and so on and so forth.

I know exactly what you mean about the nitpicking. I'm so guilty of that myself. But you're very welcome. I love octopi and seeing a jack-o-lantern one made my day (or rather night haha)! :)

Nifty! I'd get that tattooed myself. And yeah, I'm am pretty much an insomniac. But at least DA provides entertainment.

You know whats weird on DA? When you make something your wallpaper without commenting...then ages later you see your old wallpaper in someone's gallery:P I used this!

It's a great design...strikes that level of weirdness that's just plain cool. If that makes sense. It's like an octopus, BUT NOT! Which is crazy. Octopus and pumpkins are both edible, BUT TOGETHER? It looks like it could bite my eyes out.

i LOVE THE PIECE!

but i think if you color the background with a
brighter yet spookier color, it would look
waaaayyy better.
The tentacles are visible, yes. It's just that the background color you have is making the tips of the octopus "glue" themselves to it. Like they are camoflauging to the backround color.

Nice work though, I love the concept and the octopus itself is freaking awesome!

I hope you forgive me if I'm bothering you with this message. hehehe
