Crab's Eye by herringbonnes Crab's Eye by herringbonnes
First of a four-piece series for my senior thesis. I am doing an advertising campaign for a fictional tea company (Nightshade: Poison Tea) where each flavour of tea is named after a poisonous herb. For example, a chamomile tea is instead branded as Crab’s Eye (get the pun in the image? get it? get it?).

So far this is the only piece of the four that doesn’t need any more adjustments so I’m going to post it here sans text. Keep an eye out for the rest to come!

(also, is it just me or is the new submission process on DA just really gross...)

It looks like an Ophelia-inspired piece, but maybe that's just me. ;-)

OooooooooooooooOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh~!!! Oh gosh oh gosh oh gosh, the composition for this piece and the colors are just oh-so beautiful~! My gosh I love the look of those crabs a-and just, I always adore the way you draw hair, it has so much volume and shape and a slightly crimped feel that just adds so much to the volume and and and ahhhhhhhh~ :heart:

But, I've seen your art featured before in the new submission process, teehee! I really like that thing about the new submit, that you can see some of the recent popular submissions to a category. c:

Amazing! But, all I can think about is Ralph pointing at the water in the picture about 5 times and saying "so... THIS is the water?". Hahaha, silly Ralph.

hahahaha I have a feeling no one is ever going to let me forget that day, and that's okay as long as Ralph never finds out where the water actually is...
