Into the open air by Ravietta Into the open air by Ravietta
It was too hot lately for my liking, but I'm sure if I had garden hose like this I could spend hours outside and be perfectly fine.
It's not animal abuse, is it? Otto seems to enjoy being a hammock :wormnomnom:
Anyway, that's my entry for :iconbriankesinger: contest.
I've made it in color, but after looking at it for some time I've come to realise it was too colorful for my eyes to enjoy the picture. So I've made it more into sepia. Colours are still visible but they don't hurt that much.

Done with Adobe Photoshop CS6 in god knows how many hours since evil photoshop decided to close itself a few times screwing up with a couple of layers.

nie mogę zrozumieć jakim sposobem nawet nie zostałaś wyróżniona przy wynikach konkursu :? toż to po prostu skandal, bo rysunek jest wspaniały, nic dziwnego że tyle ludu go ulubiło ;3 Fajny pomysł a wykonanie świetne :heart:

This is brilliant! I love the colours! I love the story! And the style! The whole way you drew it.. screams steam punk, because there something peculiar and classy about every detail. I just adore how her skirts are hanging there. I feel like I can stretch out my hand and take them. Actually there's always something that makes me look at your art and feel like the characters are gonna start moving. And not because it's an animation but because they actually look alive... living...!

This is beautiful! I like everything in this: the idea, the scene, the fish in the bowl, the colors, the light, Victoria's relaxed and happy posture and expression…
It's really a peaceful and refreshing piece:)

On się cieszy z bycia hamakiem, bo może macać jej tyłek :fear: Ale grunt że ma zraszacz i dobre nawilżenie.
Doświadczenie nauczyło mnie, że czytanie książki trzymanej przez kogoś innego jest fhooy niewygodne, zwłaszcza jak tej osobie trzęsą się ręce/macki xD

Excately, they have a beak right in the center of the tentacels.

It's a very good drawing and the idea is excentric, but it will not work.

I know it's open air but this popped into my mind way too much for it not to be sang out loud when viewing this...
"Octopus's Garden"

I'd like to be under the sea
In an octopus's garden in the shade
He'd let us in, knows where we've been
In his octopus's garden in the shade

I'd ask my friends to come and see
An octopus's garden with me
I'd like to be under the sea
In an octopus's garden in the shade

We would be warm below the storm
In our little hideaway beneath the waves
Resting our head on the sea bed
In an octopus's garden near a cave

We would sing and dance around
Because we know we can't be found
I'd like to be under the sea
In an octopus's garden in the shade

We would shout and swim about
The coral that lies beneath the waves
(Lies beneath the ocean waves)
Oh what joy for every girl and boy
Knowing they're happy and they're safe
(Happy and they're safe)

We would be so happy you and me
No one there to tell us what to do
I'd like to be under the sea
In an octopus's garden with you
In an octopus's garden with you
In an octopus's garden with you

Well if Otto does not like it, He / she could always bite her, since she is sitting on where Otto's mouth would be.
Rather unique idea here. Never would I have thought I would see something like this used as a hammock.
