Hagfish: These slime specialists can fill a bucket with predator-deterring protein strands in mere minutes. Tying themselves in a knot helps slough off extra slime! 😁🐍
Underpainting saga continues.
It takes several passes to add texture and light and dark depths when using oils. I am SUPER paranoid and have taken my time on this.
The head is done excluding some dark washes and texturing needed on the gills, the hand will be disappearing in the shadows and is the part that needs the most work. The body needs another pass of texture and detailing along with the wound and blood. I promise that over barring blob hand will look beautiful by the end of the week. 🤣
By this weekend I should be laying down color washes and all this hard work of underpainting should be worth it!
Excited to have this be apart of an art show in January along side some of my talented friends for @realgdt.
