Gong Li and tentacle by PapaNinja Gong Li and tentacle by PapaNinja
A caricature of Gong Li (for me the most beautiful woman of the world ^^).
It wasn't easy for me, I don't do this kind of lighting very often.
I was very inspired by the tones (blue/green) of my talented friend Denis Zilber ([link]) .
I used a photo reference for her face, you can see it on my blog ([link]).
Done (with Photoshop) for an exhibition in Paris and Montreal this summer.

And no, I have no problems with tentacles :p

Excellent job on the light reflections!  They really enhance the flesh of the octopus' tentacle, and the material of her bikini top.

That bikini top is just mind-blowing. Best PVC/Spandex rendering I know of on DA.
