dumbo octopi!

Dumbo octopi! What's not to love about these cute sea creatures (i had this video playing over and over in the background)?! This is what i came up with after a friend asked to see a dumbo octopus drawn in my style (and i apologize to marine biologists for the gross inaccuracies. My friend is very much into fashion shoes/boots, so i decided to include that as an element. :)

adobe photoshop CS4 + textures from CGtextures.com

i was trying something new again - more lighting/composition/colour/everything practice needed! Unnngh... But hey! At least it's not another portrait? :)

That is so cute. It reminds me of an octopus I made with bunny ears in college. Except mine was done in Eric Carle's style.

Thanks! Oooh awesome! Was it a dumbo octopus or just an octopus with bunny ears? ;)

With the bunny ears. I hadn't thought of taking it further than that. She was late for a party and her name was Odessa.
