Mr. Octopus

I love/fear creatures of the sea.  Doesn't my octopus look so much nicer and cuter than in real life?  Its tentacles kinda remind me of ferns with their green leaves and (gross) spores underneath.  I wanted to try out my gouache paints without a pen or pencil outline first.  I love the pen since I hadn't used it as much in the past and it's what I started with when I began drawing again recently, but it's kinda freeing to just use the paint by itself.  I may try this out again some more.  Maybe jellyfish next?  Frightening/fascinating.
