This is my second render of the Octopus Heels floating around in my head. The last render I drew was quick and messy. I'm so happy that the idea is slowly becoming more and more solid and consistent...but I'm upset because creating them was one of my New Year's resolutions; the only one I haven't done so far, I think.
This is so like me. I just screw myself into doing things all the time. Self sabotage!
(LOGISTICS) In my mind the majority of the shoe is designed in antique gold; it also may or may not have a black velvet base. I'm not sure yet. I drew them in green because I think if I used yellow tones it wouldn't have come out correctly. There will be a lot more intricate details on the tentacles when they're actually made...
(INSPIRATION) I want it to seem like the girl wearing them fell into the sea and found these in some abandoned wreckage...in a little treasure chest.They were all gross and covered in sea weed but she kept them and polished them. Now they're beautiful and they have a lot of stories to tell. Or something like that.
