MorpherVery nice. Look at all those fun colors! And IDK if it's just me but... I see see two eyes in this painting. The white one the blue, surrounded by the green and yellow. See it? Well... I do. xP Anyways, again, good work. I quite enjoy the shading on the anchor.

IcalatariThe eyes are on my octopus head. ;) The blue on blue for his head and arms was supposed to make him unobtrusive, apparently he just decided to camouflage. :p
The colors are quite fun! I enjoyed playing with everything. ^_^

MorpherSo those were eyes! On an camouflaged octopus to be precise. Neat-o. :P

Jadisthis is very cool there's a;to on there that doesn't show up at first glance. 
I like the verse too.
this anchor doesn't appear to to very well tied to something or the something it is tied to is not pulling against the rope, which I find interesting and through provoking.
and that makes me wonder is the anchor is not planted wither, and the jelly fish and the octopus are carrying it around. 
I've been wanting to draw octopuses... this might inspire me,

IcalatariHello, Jadis! My greetings are a bit out of order, as I've been responding to your messages back to front, but late greetings are better than none, yes?
I was actually copying most of what I did from someone else's directions, and she was copying from yet another person's work -- so the slack in the rope wasn't intended as a symbolic thing so much as something helpfully decorative.
But I do love that you pointed that out, I might never have considered it otherwise! Thank you for your input. :)

JadisI find that many times there are good things in art which are unintentional but they still add something. art is part magic and part intention.

Jadislol...that strange word in line one is "a lot"   ...thought  provoking, not through provoking...either not wither... [cold fingers type badly I guess]
