did you lay the ink then paint over it?

Yep, I splashed down the background in acrylic and ink, then painted inside it.

Meeting that would be absolutely terrifying for me! I have a fear of jellyfish, and the small ones scare me enough. I don't know what I'd do if I met that jelly monster.

How do you get the color balance right on Photoshop? DO you mess with he hues, saturation, or both?

Congrats!

Sometimes I have luck with picking a white point in the "curves" option, but I find that mostly the exposure and gamma correction work the best. It never looks as good as the original though!

Absolutely in love with this piece. I really like the concept/idea of the piece. It is very well pulled off and painted. You have a great way with water colour!

Oooh! It's so ethereal but so scary too! I love the way its tenticles fade into the depths, and the little ship is great in showing us how huge it is! I'm so curious about how you added the detail on the ink splashes like that, did you splash the background first, or add it gradually?

Congratulations on the DD!

I did the whole thing at once and it was a giant mess and took hours to dry! :D  I can't control the splashy look very much, which is why it's fun, but I really love the veiny areas....it happens (sometimes) when you put drops of clear water into a wet colored area.

I can imagine, I get fed up waiting for watercolours to dry and those take a few minutes.  I think it's brilliant how something as uncontrollable as ink can create such surprising and beautiful work

I love this! The details in the ship and tentacles are balanced beautifully by the looseness of the dark water inks. Fantastic and congrats on the DD!
