A lil' Come and Get It

This is a piece submitted to Bobby Chiu's Trap-themed contest over at Sketchoholic.

I was hoping to go for an old-school Pulp-esque sort of thing. There are things that worked and things that didn't. Getting back into painting still feels good. Ended up cropping about three inches off of the right side of the painting and going in with an India pen.

I saved the line work and may eventually do a digital paint.

Also, this is not some weird tentacle fetish. She is a decoy. Like those little bio-luminescent lightbulb bits on deep-water fish. Maybe in the digital version she will be illuminated!
