Illustration Friday - Idle

The lonely octopus idly floats in the ocean waiting for a meal to come within an inch of its tentacles. Just what do they do with themselves all day?

This was a bold exploration in colour shading for me, and a pretty successful one at that. I especially love how the water came out.

great illustration, i wonder about a lot of creatures. birds always seem busy, my little dog, on the other hand, can lay around all day, then at night act like it is tired and ready for bed.
