AquaFunk by FabianMonk AquaFunk by FabianMonk
Okay people, last one! Was holding onto this one for last. Here's a collaboration I did with Daniel Alexander :iconryudan:. This was one of those occasions where everything just sort of clicks into place and works out perfectly.
Dani catered exactly towards my tastes and preferences with his tight but nevertheless loose and really open lines, letting me do whatever the hell I wanted. Started coloring this on a Friday afternoon and stayed up until 6 am, got out of bed around mid day and colored until 6 am again, as well as the entire Sunday. God damn I love it when that happens. This will hopefully not be the last time we work together.
And that's the ever so adorable Kid Missile in the picture right there, about to get his shit ruined something awful by an aquatic incarnation of the Chairman Badfunk! SatelliteSoda, check it out!

Lines: Dani :iconryudan:
Colors by me.

Here are some process pics (I didn't take many for this one though, just totally forgot... too immersed in the actual picture to remember):

So much movement, flows great.
The tentacles/hair are fantastic!
And so is the lighting and minimalistic color scheme!

Haha yeah those tentacles were fun to work on. The whole monster actually. Dani's great to work with that way, he's cool with me doing whatever the hell I want with his lines.
Thanks!
