I like to use a screentone effect in my shading to add a little extra interest and texture.

The Alien In Our Oceans

"(The Octopus) is probably the closest we will come to meeting an intelligent alien.” - Peter Godfrey-Smith

I once read that there is a group of scientist that actually believe that the Octopus is evolved from alien bacteria that landed on earth from a meteorite. I also read that most other scientists think this theory is bonkers. I though the theory was a fun one so I created this illustration with the intent to use it as a tote bag design.

This illustration was created entirely on the 1st Gen iPad Pro in Clip Studio Paint.
