Steampunk Octopus by MegLyman Steampunk Octopus by MegLyman
A dapper gentleman, the Steampunk Octopus is old-fashioned, yet hip to modernity. He's fashionable and chivalrous, but he might dismantle your iPod if you get too close.

4x5.5" gouache and ink.

I guess I was wrong an octopus is a mollusk. He is quite dashing and love how he looks like he is wearing armor, love his torch and the keys on the torch, and his watch and bracelets and the pipe. He looks like a knight with lots of cool tools and weapons.

I LOVE it with all of my soul for many reasons. It it very skillfully colored. I love the blue-ish accents everywhere. I love anything that has an octopus in it. Out of all of the deviations I've looked at thus far, this character hands down wears steam punk the best. I absolutely mean that, I wish I had though of it. Good job!
