Finally finished this Octopus commission. I'm pretty sure I lost a bit of my sanity on this one. :o (Eek)

This is colored pencil? As in, this is all colored pencil and pen?

Talk about talent! How did you do the glow effect with colored pencil? That's the kind of thing I NEED digital for! The color scheme is fantastic: the analogous colors are just amazing. The near-perfect symmetry is astonishing... There's really no digital stuff here? How old are you!? All your art is this good? So this is where the talent's been hiding! Super awesome work, my dear!

Thanks!
And yep, it's entirely done with colored pencil and ballpoint pen. I do use white gel pen and a bit of white acrylic wash for highlights though. No digital anything. All I did was brighten the photo and do some very basic color correction in photoshop so that the picture looks presentable.
The glow effect is actually super easy to do with the pencils, maybe I'll make a video or something on how to do it.
Annnnd I'm 24 years old. ^^
