A very drunken octopus
I've made a drunken octopus before, but this one is on his way to getting blotto. Hammered. Three sheets to the wind. See all the bottles? I gave him a little snack in a shell, too, for drunk munchies ;-).
hahaha, you made me laugh!:)Thank you! It is such a great octopus!ReplyDelete
Aw, I love octopi! So nice to see him having fun instead of being eaten! Great job.ReplyDelete
Kiva, what a great idea and what an absolutely perfect work!!ReplyDelete
Cheers sweet octopus, wish you a good time (-;
Oh, cute :D He's having it easy, as he can hold multiple bottles at the same time - you know, he could smoke a couple of ciggies simultaneously also ;)ReplyDelete
Fab job, I love your crazy ideas :D
...certainly gives new meaning to the term, 'pickled octopus'...ReplyDelete
He looks as though he is enjoying himself.
The octopus must be very happy, surrounded by food and especially good bottles.ReplyDelete
You've got it all so real !!!!!!
i guess he can't smoke in there or he'll set the tub (and himself) on fire! XQ~~~ReplyDelete
awesome! i luvs it!
Kiva, has anyone ever asked you to create these creatures for animation? You will be filthy rich! We may see you at the Academy Award!ReplyDelete
This is fabulous and so imaginative too! :o))ReplyDelete
That is great!ReplyDelete
Imagine the brave soul the first decided to eat an octopus (calamari) or a lobster! They must have been desperate. lol
This is GREAT!!! What more could an octopus ask for? Fantastic Kiva!ReplyDelete
"...certainly gives new meaning to the term, 'pickled octopus'..." <------ROFL Linda
He is great!ReplyDelete
Thanks so much, guys!! I had fun making him!!ReplyDelete
HAHA!!! Pickled octopus :-D!!
Kristy, I made another one just like this, except his big head is completely off to the side, so he looks more drunk! He's also slipping more into the water. I snapped a pic of this one because you can see more of his legs ;-)!
Susan, that would be super cool!! Ok, here I go again with the "old-school" thing, but I've always loved claymation (how apropos!). I studied animation in S.F., but not for that long. Just Flash stuff.
Just amazing how real the octopus looks!!ReplyDelete
Oh, too funny! I will have to show my daughter this, I've told you of her love of octupus.ReplyDelete
Your tat is looking cool, btw. :)
Yup, just showed her, she loved it. :)ReplyDelete
Thank you Meli!!! And thank you Dale's daughter :-D!!! The thumbs up from a fellow octopus lover can't be beat!!!ReplyDelete
wow !!! nice...ReplyDelete
