Ocotopus' pus


Just another quick study of the Octopus villain. I'm pretty happy with the fish lips and teeth and after years of trying (see my website for some earlier attempts) I've hit on a method for stylised tentacles which delivers what I'm after.

Ace! The tentacles at the tips are so expressive and villainous, you can tell he's up to no good. Really enjoying seeing this come together...

Big Fish lips? Like Father Bigley...

I really can't wait to see this guy in action as it were... There is such depth to your work and your villian shows that you're clearly enjoying this challenge.

I find when I enjoy something the results are so much better, and in this case the octopusiuses pusses are infused with that brilliant sense of humour I so admire in your stuff!

Looking good, you've achieved a great balance between being fun and having a scary edge.

Hi Matt.
Loving where you're going with the Octopus - as Phoole said above, you've hit a great balance between the scheming and the comic.
Looking forward to seeing more.

Your Rhyming Animal Alphabet is looking great too, can we expect to see I and J soon?

Thanks for the comments on my cereal, it was more a case of me going to them than them approaching me, after seeing some of the great stuff on the Cereal Killers blog I decided I wanted to get involved and had a readymade image that I thought I could put to good use.
