Socctopus by MegLyman Socctopus by MegLyman
The Socctopus, cousin of the Football Squid, is famous for its excellent handling and lift. However, they tend to get emotional, and sit around looking dejected after the game, when nobody needs them anymore. Plus, it's tough getting kicked around for 90 minutes.

Oh this is so original! I'd like to keep one as a pet, if not just hold it for a minute to see how it feels ^^ I like the way you've painted the picture, too.

can I ask why there's a flagpole instead of a goal?
Reply
:iconmeglyman:
MegLyman Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2008  Professional Traditional Artist
It's the corner flag. The goal would be off to the right.

But yeah, some people have asked why he's on a golf course. Lesson learned!

Thanks, I appreciate the feedback! I probably should have made the grass a bit longer to help anchor him.

that may have helped, it looks like golf-course grass, but you've managed without it ^^
now you've got more to consider for next time, always good!

But he will eventually not have spots, due to his white areas disappearing under his bruises. ;3;

Wow, this really reminds of my own sadly pathetic attempt to play soccer as a kid, I really did suck, always on the sidelines. Looking at this now makes me wanna adopt him :( make sure he never gets kicked around again. Lousy childhood memories. Still love it tho :)

They must be lonelier than other sports cephalopods. I've read that NFL games use about 24 balls each time, and pro baseball games use more than 100, but soccer games usually involve just one.
