Very nice! They are almost like ghosts! Although, I do have to tell you...the plural of octopus is octopi : )
Patricia long ago
I love octopuses! They're such amazing creatures. And no worries about the plural spelling - both octupuses and octopi are accepted (look in the scientific literature if you don't believe me). Cheers!

Patricia: phew! Thanks, that's good news :-)

Great! You are in a "Tim Burton" kind of mood. It grabs you!!!
Vlad Gerasimov long ago
Luzma: yes yes yes! I found it very inspirational to create "scary - funny" things, how is it in english? spooky? :-)
Justin long ago
good job as always. i have to ask though, (because there are a few ways you couldve done this), but how did you create the tentacles (bumps) on the octupus's legs?
Vlad Gerasimov long ago
Justin - I created them with pen - see scanned original -

Justin long ago
thanks vlad. do you always sketch out your work before you do it digitally?
Justin long ago
i think i misunderstood you. did you draw that by hand, scan it, then edit it photoshop?
Vlad Gerasimov long ago
Justin - yes, exactly, draw by hand with gel pen (on paper :-) ), then scanned and manipulated in Photoshop.
Justin long ago
do you use this method for all your wallpapers?
Vlad Gerasimov long ago
Justin - no, not actually. More otfen I create "stick figures" directiy in Photoshop, using pencil tool.

OCTOPI. what is so difficult about correct English grammer?
Jeannette 2 January 2009
...might I add, I work in a highly regarded English department at a University. "Octopuses" would never be accepted. However, the fact that it is a title of a work of art technically lets it slide as incorrect grammar because there is no incorrect art.
Vlad Gerasimov 2 January 2009
Jeannette: I love how you wrote "what is so difficult about correct English gramm_e_r" !

It looks really cool until I put it as my wallpaper- it darkens the room and it makes it look scarier!
