This is somehow disturbing... a flying woman-octopus with her head the other way...
HorseRotovator Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2007
Omg! The dumbo octopus! This is my most favorite animal in the world and you rendered it beautifully with that touch of whimsical goodness. X3 I love the painterly quality you have that still manages to house those bright, lovely colors.

I thought they were adorable when I saw one on animal planet an said as much. my mother stared at it for a minut and then said... "well honey, I'm glad you can see beauty in everything..." XD silly mommy
Bloodtruffle Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2007
I love octopi! They are beautifal and very intelligent, i believe. Great depiction, not all of them deserve to be portrayed in the dark, cold depths of a menacing sea.
einahpets Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2007

AMPEugenie Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2007
