An octopus that wears metal pants

edit:
a few minor changes. What background is better? I am leaning toward the darker version.


Flat color works well with my designs but it is far from what I usually imagine when I am drawing them. Unlike most of my designs this image was actually created to be flat colored. I think it turned out pretty cool. I was trying to really push the bright color pallete as much as I could. Bright, bright, and more bright. I will post up a couple more colored animal drawings here quick. My eggplant toad and pinecone owl designs still need a little more color loving before I will post them up.

Does he wear metal pants or ride metal pants? I love that he's wearing a hat... and the little white mouse sidekick is cool too. I like the flat colors... nice stuff, Joe.

This is awesome joe... I love his goggles - well, that and the fact that it's an octopus/robot having a cup of tea in a blizzard.

Adam Ford said...

Awesome! Man this is really great!

Sebastien Gallego said...

You have such a great sense of design Joe! This is awesome!

Ryan Wood said...

Completely rad, Joe! I love the snow and the various things he's holding, nice job!

David Malan said...

Really cool. Snow? did you take the lead of all the stores and decide to start your holiday celebrating early to make more money?

ya..the darker one is better. Good call. This is awesome man...and hilarious. Just the idea of an octopus operating a pair of machine legs is too funny..and of COURSE he'd have coffee and a sword! He has to find something to do with all those tentacles right?

Hey, where's the others? I think when Ryan said to stretch your posts out he didn't mean this far. . .

Gerald said...

That hat is a nice touch. You've got a great set of character designs. This is one of my favorites...just because I like octopus and robots.

Gerald: I am with you, gotta love octopi and robotics. Thanks for commenting.
