Just add colour…

by thisnorthernboy

I posted my weird tentacled creature illustration a couple of weeks ago, and the original was sold to a graphic designer and illustrator from the Netherlands, Martijn Rijven. Martin is a great illustrator, and you should really check out his Instagram page. Today Martijn asked me if it was OK to post his digitally coloured version of my drawing – once I saw it I was blown away and was more than happy to share what he’s done. If my drawing was a four out of ten before, I think the colouring job Martijn has done on it takes it to eleven! The side-by-side image shows just how much the colour added.

Martijn’s fantastic colour version.
