Lonely Octopus

I figured I'd start throwing some of my doodle drawings up here every now and then. I tried to paint this with actual watercolors many months back and that ended... poorly. A few days ago, I played some N64 Mario Kart at work with some colleagues, which reminded me of this Lonely Octopus drawing idea and I thought I'd finish it up in Photoshop. -ml

I really enjoy your drawing style. It feels fast and easy but it's super solid and looks great!

Oh man, haven't checked back in a while. Haha, ninja claws was good.

I think this is the hardest thing to do, is a single panel that's got a good punch. Because you have to tell the whole story in one panel. One image to sell an idea. Can't wait to see more of your doodles here : )
