CUDDLEFISH by nettlebeast CUDDLEFISH by nettlebeast


CUDDLEFISH.
BECAUSE THEY LOOK SO CUDDLY AND CUTE
:iconyoucardplz:


Piece two of :iconshadowdazed:'s commission package. This one and the previous octopus picture are meant to correspond with one another; I feel the colors in each will bounce off each other nicely, and look cute on her wall! :D

I hope you all get a smile out of it, too! :love:

Illustration belongs to me.
Many general photo references used.

This is so cute! I just LOVE the colors and textures in this piece - especially the color choice for the coral (?). Love the dotted lines along the body of the fish.. and also digging those tentacles all curled together!

I fucking love cuddlefish omg. anything octopi/squid are usually some of my top fave animals >:C they're SO CUTE, I don't care how odd and alien they look to everyone else. I want a cuttlefish so badly! but I heard they don't live long, sob.

love the colors and the concept on this! the color balance is so nice I LOVE THE MINI DETAILS ONCE AGAIN <3

OH MY GOSH. I didn't even KNOW you could get pet cuttlefish? /legally?/ LOL
They would be neat pets, but I imagine they wouldn't be all that interactive or personable; they'd probably just see you as a predator. D:


OHH THANK YOU <3333333

YEAH, I THINK YOU CAN

BUT LIKE. either their saliva or their skin is really venomous. I don't know if it's the type that can kill you, or just cause a crap ton of pain

I HEARD THEY ARE BITERS AND I THINK KIND OF SKITTISH. but damnit I love them hard, they're so CUTE

I think I'm just a tad bit partial to cuttlefish, but I LOVE:heart:LOVE:heart:LOVE THIS SO MUCH. The colors are brilliant, as usual and the texture you used in this one really makes it look like the watercolor effect I wanted! :meow:

These two look absolutely fantastic together!! :lol: As soon as I get them framed, I'll show you what they look like up on the wall together!

HE'S JUST SO CUDDLY LOOKING.

Well, I LOVED drawing the both of them, so I'm pleased that you're excited about both pieces!

I'm so glad! I was hoping I'd get just the whimsical effect you wanted, with PLENTY of attractive color to set off the colors of your walls!
:iconilavplz:

Thank you so much for choosing me to draw these guys for you! It was a treat working with underwater colors! :D <3333

really nicely done! :clap: those colors are gorgeous and it really feels like you're underwater.

i'd say the cuttlefish is more squishy than cuddly :meow:
