This is an image I made as part of an art trade with an artist called Anattor. It is not often I get one of my own characters requested in trades, but Anattor wished to see Eclipse wearing her old attire in some kind of peril. The options were against a snake or a giant squid. As you can see I went with the latter option.
This image turned out to be a challenge, but a very enjoyable one as I experimented quite a good deal making this image, as well as correcting details I normally leave out thanks to Anattor's observations. Whilst it is a fantasy image, Anattor was hoping to get a sense of realism and helped me a great deal sending me references to try and get that feel.
I'm very happy with the end result, and I believe Anattor is also pleased with this side of the request which is a joy to know. It's probably one of the best peril images I've made since a very long time, and I hope my first followers who still watch me for the peril works like this one.
Don't worry about Eclipse everyone, she makes it out of this one alive... and actually discovers later that night that Ocotpus is pretty tasty after catching and cooking a big one.
