Octopus Sketch by pixelfish Octopus Sketch by pixelfish
Okay, I went a bit farther with this then I meant to. I was just gonna lay in the basic shapes and some colours. Instead, I ended up inking my initial sketch. Once I got started, I wanted to go further with the colouring, but I also wanted to have something that looked fairly cohesive, so I ended stopping here.

Anyway, this was my sketch for the day. I used one of my own photos for reference, from a recent trip to the Seattle Aquarium. You can compare it here: [link]

Also you can see in progress shots here at my art blog:

I looked at your art blog, and I spent a while searching for a really neat octopus, and I was going to ask if I could PLEASE color it? It looks so pretty.

You know you're in trouble when the octopus is smiling.

I think of it more as an ominous grin. :)
