Mollusctation by chriskoehler Mollusctation by chriskoehler
this one took me a few months and many sessions. ironically, it is one of the tinier pieces, at 12" x 9". You can see the line drawing of this in the scraps. Please let me know what you think!

Cool! I love the colors, and the detailing of the octopus's body and arms. The posture and sense of movement are very realistic- it could just as easily be octopod-ing around the ocean floor and trying to eat a crab. Though I have to admit, I prefer the helicopter. Godzilloctopus!

thanks! i didn't have much reference to go on, so i have no idea how realistic this is. I am just counting on non marine biologists looking at this work.
