    Aloha Mühe'e!



    "Mühe'e" is the Hawaiian word for "squid"... I thought it was appropiate.

    I used to have a bright red vintage Hawaiian shirt that I inherited from my father, from the time he went to Honolulu many years ago... Apparently he just wore it once and decided the retina-searing color was too garish for his taste... I certainly enjoyed wearing it, but alas, I have it no more.

    Anyway, that shirt was the inspiration for the squid and the lei (flower garland) the squid is wearing is identical to one I received last week at surf rock concert.

    All art assets were done in Artrage, but I did use another program to move a handful of layers around (I wish we had this feature natively) to create the background quickly. The sharks look very much alike, but each one was done individually; they look more organic this way.

    This one was fun to do, thanks for looking and I hope you enjoy it!

    Nice! Looking good Loki! That is a vibrant image with plenty to see without being busy and a bright and cohesive color scheme. Well done.
