mecha tentacle, an experiment

four ways of drawing a mechanical tentacle

top left to bottom right:

– partly inked
– tried to do shading with a treacherous brush pen that should have been medium grey, but turned out to be so dark the effect got lost, dammit
– blown up blacks, levels and contrast digitally, because i was mad at said brush pen.
