This is monstruously awesome, and I've kept it raging in my inbox for months until I got the chance to let you know how bad eveything else in my inbox looks compared to him (/her?)
Terrific job. It looks like a traditional illustration - did you use particular brushes or textures?

You're both terrifying and inspiring, seriously. Keep it up :heart:

YOU FINALLY- good gods YOU FINALLY- :iconawesomenessplz:

ohmaigoodness you mustnt say that D: your stuff is the kind of a-bomb that can seriously make a killing in the graphic novel industry if you were to unleash it!!! (the mental picture of your unchained aggron suddenly comes to mind.)

I'm not too sure about my kraken's gender. It's probably hermaphrodite; krakens ought to be extremely rare in the wild, yeah? so the odds of a male meeting a female are like pittance, soooo i suppose it'll be an evolutionary advantage for a kraken to hohoho any other kraken that comes along ..? Maybe do some elaborate tentacle courtship dance and wrap each other stupid (as the deep sea cuttlefish do), nibble each others' gills or something OKAY it's mmmmmmm pure photoshop. No pen, no pencil, no scanner --- just my tablet. Wanted to escape the event horizon of my comfort zone, so, no preliminary paper sketch.

I didn't make the top 25, but i'm still glad i made this haha :)
