Ctenophorae - Visual Reference by Slugbox Ctenophorae - Visual Reference by Slugbox
Something LONG overdue! It's hard to make a definitive reference for her because she steadily changes, but her appearance should remain like this for the foreseeable future... at least outwardly... So I hope this helps people!

There's a few tricks with her patterns:
- The light pink for her hair set to MULTIPLY over her blue skin will make the purple for her spots!
- The hot pink used for her eyes, when set to COLOR over her blue skin and purple spots, will create that pinkish purple fade.
- The yellow of her eyes is the same color as her standard background and speech bubbles.
- The orange on the tips of her tentacles is the same color as her tongue and the shadows on her eyes.
- If you flat in Maximum Saturation Red like I do, and then desaturate it with the PS shortcut, you'll get the proper gray.

I'm not one of those people who are like , ERMAHGERD DRAW MAH OC RITE OR ELS. Seriously. Have fun. Do what you want! Fuck knows I never draw her the same way twice. But if this helps, then that's awesome!

Neat!! I should have some prints up for this later! And don't forget that there is a Cteno Dakimakura and Commissions Raffle happening! Check this icon for details:

wow!

your girl scares me, yet I like it, do not have that, it cramps me everything and I feel like chicken skin.

I'm sure I saw a similar picture elsewhere, but I'm not sure.

good job.

if she was INSPIRED by something then what was the monster species?

I've noticed the grey stuff around her feet is usually varying in pictures. At first I thought it looked like socks of some kind, but it has an almost organic look to it sometimes, so now I am wondering.. what is it?

She can produce it because she's a slime monster. It's some different type of slimey substance, not sure what it is. It's meant to represent socks/legwarmers

Its amazing hoe she has evolved over time. I remember when she was basically a phony and barely talked to anyone. Now look at her, she's her own monster.

Does she have meta tarsals in each foot now, or still just one with 2 sets of pastern bones sticking off of the end? Or, is it still one long pastern bone that's v-shaped and has 2 short pastern bones coming off of it?
