IF:Quiet [with updated detail views]






Click on image to enlarge.

I have sketches to post when I get a chance but all my time was going to this illustration. After the deafening quiet, Harry wishes he could dissapear. Then he gets his wish because his nerves kick off the black swirly ink octopus thing which, as you may have guessed causes him to in essence dissapear from his audience. The crowd applauds furiously. This inspires Harry to ditch comedy and take up magic. And that is the cornball story of how Harry Octopotterpus became a master magician and lived up to his magical name.

UPDATED FROM ORIGINAL POST
I decided to add some detail views because I was dissapointed with the way you couldn't see the scratches and cuts on the size of the illustration I posted when viewing it on the web. I was especially into the jellyfish and the way the carving and shavings looked. Jellyfish are one of the most bizarre creatures. We have a very cool creation around us to inspire us and dig on do we not?
