Applepus by Meg Lyman

A very fun tattoo commission for Amy. Her little guy apparently calls them applepus instead of octopus, which is adorable and also the reason for the toy.

I used a more impasto application of gouache than usual, and it was both challenging and educational. The stuff is really easy to blend wet in wet, but once it dries, lifting becomes a problem. It’s a delicate balancing act between having enough paint mixed up and keeping that paint wet while you work with other colors — via CrashOctopus Blog
