art - teuthoidea by digifox art - teuthoidea by digifox
This came from a doodle I did while trying to come up with ideas for something else.

___

I have a great love for octopods. (And yet I find spiders, and all their eights, terrifying.)

I'm a great fan of the squishy, tentacled ones as well..tho I adore spiders as well, as long as they're not one of those horrific desert varieties.
guch.

Cuttlefish and Nautilis are frequently overlooked cephalopods, yet they have such style n grace!

it reminds me of an edward gorey illustration, with the curly tentacles, the simple-but-slightly-menacing expression, plus the text caption, "the many tentacled one." i looove it -- octopus (is that the plural form?) are so interesting.

Thank you so much for your comments on my octopods. Being compared to Gorey is always a delight. I'm too flattered!

Very creepy looking but just freakin' cool at the same time.
I also love the typography and the border, whole series is good but this is my favourite.

These get better and better, but maybe I've seen them in the wrong order.
This must be the one I like the most. Feels and looks like an ancient highly
intelligent evil.

I too love aquatic creatures such as these-- such grace and flow they have. I also love spiders and all kinds of insects- Josh is like you tho-- he does NOT like spiders! The borders you created for this series works perfectly -- marvelous job =)

this is great! it's such a great style, dark and curved, like it's drawn in ink with a calligraphy pen :) i love how it doesn't have to be all huge and action-ified (if you get what i mean) to look good :) great work!

i'd say it's minimally menacing, or rather menacing without being too over the top.
i like the pose it's in, that one tenticle on the right side looks as though its about to spring into action or something.
