Lollipop Octo Knight by ElsaKroese Lollipop Octo Knight by ElsaKroese
His battle cry is : FOR UNICORNS!

This is a redraw of a quick painting that I made a bunch of years ago. I always thought the concept of the old one was a lot of fun, but I never liked the execution. I  started the redraw some time ago as well but I never really finished it. Until I did :D. I made it for my awesome friend Lesley, because she's the best ^__^!

It's not often that I use these kind of colors and a lens flare as unapologetic as I did here, but I just wanted to take it all the way XD. I even suck a little tiny rainbow in there :'))).

Anywho.  This was fun.

old version here:

The water splash, especially, works better for me in this new version.

Thank you! I'm happy someone noticed. I think that was the main reason for me to re-do the paint, and it definitely took the most time to paint XD.

'Healing'? As in good for the soul? :la:
Also slightly off topic, do you mind if I use this as a wallpaper for my phone? 
It's not like I'm selling it or anything but I figured it would be nice to ask anyway
