Of all the creatures that live in the depth of our oceans, the octopus is amongst the most unusual and curious – and they have a wealth of unusual skills and talents that sets them apart from many animals! In just a few short steps, we will create our very own octopus – and we have all you need to get started.
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Use a red pen to add an angled horseshoe shape to the center of your page.
Bring a wavy line down from the left side, waving this towards the bottom left-hand corner of the page.
Add a wavy line to the bottom right, curving this across to the right, and then down and to the left.
Return to the line on the left, and bring another line up and across to form a tentacle.
Add another tentacle to the right of the first…
Now, add another two tentacles to the right of this.
Add another, wavier tentacle behind that on the right…
And then bring another across to the right, flicking this up at the end.
Add another wavy tentacle to the left…
And then add another wavy tentacle to the left above this.
Now, add a small half circle shape to the left side of the head, and fill this in with the red pen.
Add a small “teardrop” shape to the right of this, inside the head…
And shade the space around this, filling in the body of your octopus with the red pen.
Grab a white marker pen, and add a series of small circles to the bottom of each tentacle for suckers.
Use a red pen to add a darker line in between these…
Use a black pen to add a small mark inside each small sucker, and add a small oval inside the eye.
And there we have it – an adorable octopus, capable of the most mysterious and curious feats – why not do a little research of your own to find out more?
