Mature Content Filter is On. The Artist has chosen to restrict viewing to deviants 18 and older.
(Contains: nudity and sexual themes)
[Note: Yes, I know deviantART's policy on mature artwork submissions. I've done my best to censor out the parts of this that oughtn't be seen by some people; and hopefully the resulting picture will stand up to the administration's watchdogs. That said, it may not; and if dA insists, I will post an alternate version that has been carefully edited and cropped to omit the "distasteful" parts of the image. That said, this is far closer to the original, so for the sake of the art, I'd rather post a censored image than a cropped one. The original work may be found in my FurAffinity account, but be warned that you'll need an FA account yourself and proof that you're age 18 to be able to see it.]

This is the final work. I drew her basic outline in CorelDRAW, as most of you saw; and then entirely colored her in Corel Photo-Paint. This is the first time I've used nothing but paint to color an image; normally I use vectors. The result is pretty good, although it took just about as long this way as it did using vectors. The shading on her lower half isn't as good as I'd like, and the shading on her skin seems a little too matte given how shiny her hair and tentacles are, but, well, it's done, finally, so I'm leaving it as it is. The background is a set of stock cave photographs from Dracoart-Stock, color-treated to look underwater-ish and made to look like pastels.

What's her story? I really don't know, but it sure looks like she has the evening pretty well planned. I've decided (at long last) to name her Laura, since and she looks to me like a girl whose name starts with L or R, and Laura has both of them. That's fine French champagne she has there, and I'm not sure where she got it or how she intends to open it. I'm not sure where she got the other stuff either, or what she intends to do with it, or what anyone would do with it >_>

And I don't know how she got turned into this; I know she was human once, but I don't know much more about her than that, really. So beyond that, if you want to know more, feel free to write a story about her (and send me a note if you do!).

Couldn't you just paint the naughty stuff out and make her arms empty?

By the way, I hope there's something other than a beak between her tentacles. ;)

Not easily, I'm sorry to say. So this remains NC-17-rated.

And near as I can figure it, there's no beak. ^^;

You say there's an uncensored version in your gallery at that other site. I'm registered, but I still can't find that image. I'm just itching to know!

I really like this one, I can't tell what she's holding, I think the neck's a tiny bit short, unless she's shrugging. But that's just a personal preference.

Only the carrot thing seemed to need censoring. Why did the scrap of paper and the bead necklace need to be censored?

Um... eheh... I think you may want to ask someone older than yourself exactly what those are before you declare them harmless. If you really can't figure it out, Note me, and I'll tell you in private, but they're not what you think they are.

Trust me, if you saw it, you'd know why it was censored. The original version of the image can be found in my FurAffinity account ([link]) if you really want to see what it looks like.

FurAffinity is an art site, just like deviantART. If you want to view works marked "mature" or "adult," you need to have an account there to do it, just like with dA; for legal reasons, they block all "mature" and "adult" content from random visitors, who haven't confirmed their age like members have.

Sorry, can't help you there. dA's policies are pretty strict about what you can and can't post, and a lot of the good stuff over at FA simply can't be posted here.

Very cool! Thank you for using my stock. Its a shame the powers-that-be here have a narrow mind on what they will allow. Maybe they should create an adult gallery for those works they are weary of.

Amazing work Phantom Inker, which more it impresses is me the shine of the hair and of her tentacles, I still didn't arrive at that quality level in my works, but who knows some day...
