Okay this one is actually a piece from 2010, then edited in 2013 because tentacles was really jaggy.

There is a kind of retro mood in it, so maybe some of you will enjoy, I hope so! :)

The first version was entirely done with DeluxePaint II on a i386 Pentium based computer with 16 colors. I then edited the picture later with Grafx2.

I should make some pictures again with this old computer... If only I had times...

For peoples who might be curious here's the animated making of  which only show the steps for the 2010 version.

@gennoveus, indeed, because the very first stages of making this was done with the mouse it was extremely long...

Holy crap the time that must have gone into this. You've captured the 'underwater' look very well. I especially like the tenticles and the keyboards.
