One of the recurring themes of my droids has to be tentacles. I don’t know why but I do love drawing a nice set of tentacles (no sniggering at the back). I quite like drawing octopus and squid too, so it’s not just droids.

There’s definitely a weird hybrid of jellyfish and octopus going on in most of these, with hints of The Matrix and The Empire Strikes Back.


Angry Octopus

Something a little different from my usual doodles today. An angry octopus, as yet unfinished. It’s about to get an ink version I think.

A pencil sketch of an angry octopus.

It’s angry, and it’s an octopus.
