Tentacular Habits are the hardest to break by

Amazing work guys, and thanks so much for sharing it with us for this challenge. It was a lot of fun adding my little spin to this one.

    hehe dig it :-)

  • cool. thanks Matt. :) At first I wasn’t sure it’d be fun to ink someone else’s work, but I really did enjoy it, and learned a lot in the process.

    Nice work, but I’m afraid that I’m not entirely sure I get it. He’s upset that his friend has gone back on a promise to stop eating chilli squid?

  • hehehe, yep, that’s exactly it. Ok, so imagine that you and your best mate are mutated half-man half-squid creatures… but your mate is addicted to the sweet sweet taste of chilli squid. Kind of perverse isn’t it? But it tastes sooooo good, how could you stop?

    And thank you for joining in on the madness! I wasn’t sure I’d like inking someone else’s stuff either, but it turns out I love it, because I don’t get hung up on the flaws I usually find in my own pencils :)

  • oh no worries at all, I’m all about the madness. Thanks again. :)
