Very nice! They are almost like ghosts! Although, I do have to tell you...the plural of octopus is octopi : )

Brilliant as always. Also I have created a wallpaper of my own. It was inspired and designed with a bit of your work :-S. I will email it to you so look for an email from...

Luzma · long ago
Great! You are in a "Tim Burton" kind of mood. It grabs you!!!

Justin · long ago
good job as always. i have to ask though, (because there are a few ways you couldve done this), but how did you create the tentacles (bumps) on the octupus's legs?

JaDe · long ago
Thank you Vlad! This is such a fun wallpaper. You have such talent!! "Justin - I created them with pen - see scanned original" Thank you for showing this Vlad...I can barely sign my name LOL I am taking this wallpaper home! Thank you, JaDe

Justin · long ago
i think i misunderstood you. did you draw that by hand, scan it, then edit it photoshop?

Vlad Gerasimov · long ago
Justin - yes, exactly, draw by hand with gel pen (on paper :-) ), then scanned and manipulated in Photoshop.

...might I add, I work in a highly regarded English department at a University. "Octopuses" would never be accepted. However, the fact that it is a title of a work of art technically lets it slide as incorrect grammar because there is no incorrect art.

He was outwardly decent and managed to preserve his aquarium, but inside he was impromptu and full of unexpectedness. --O Henry, The Octopus Marooned {A favourite quotation to a favourite Artist}

Patricia: phew! Thanks, that's good news :-)

I love octopuses! They're such amazing creatures. And no worries about the plural spelling - both octupuses and octopi are accepted (look in the scientific literature if you don't believe me). Cheers!

thanks vlad. do you always sketch out your work before you do it digitally?

Vlad Gerasimov · long ago
Justin - no, not actually. More otfen I create "stick figures" directiy in Photoshop, using pencil tool.

Jeannette · 2 January 2009
OCTOPI. what is so difficult about correct English grammer?

Vlad Gerasimov · 2 January 2009
Jeannette: I love how you wrote "what is so difficult about correct English gramm_e_r" !

abbi · 9 May 2010
It looks really cool until I put it as my wallpaper- it darkens the room and it makes it look scarier!
