Not gonna lie, I went way off my initial intentions for this piece. For the Coral prompt, I wanted to do one of those cursed pirates from Pirates of the Caribbean movies. I ended up doing some sort of Groot’s ghost with coral pieces all over.

I started with the shading first to see if I can copy the style of other artists where they start with blobs of paint first and then work they way to cleaner lines and finer details. But I couldn’t bridge the paint to the cleaner lines, and instead of correcting the course, I just went with it. And that’s how I ended up with an ethereal coral monster.

I love it when plans don’t go the way they’re supposed to and they end up being better. I’m not sure this is one of those times, though.
