I seem so share the current obsession with octopi. I'm sorry for adding to the surplus octopus themed shirts, but I couldn't get this critter out of my mind.

well drawn, but the concept doesn't make sense, even though its a great excuse to draw a well shaded octopus. ... 4.

Once Again

I like it but, I would love it if his tentacle wrapped around the light bulb.

That octopus is GORGEOUSLY RENDERED. And the highlights are lovely. But, man, that lightbulb seems irrelevant. 4

This really does stand out from the octopodal crowd. 5$

travioli

not a huge fan of the shirt but your linework is insane... great use of form and weight. 5 mezo always seems to beat me to the comments

what is this talk of relevance? this design is original, whimsical, and shows great skill. in other words, more threadless than threadless.

I love the design! But I dunno what's the deal with octopus subs lately. But this is the best so far.

Placement B. Very well-executed octopus. The "light source" really adds something.

Ueno

its not the usual style that i like but i would definitely buy this :)

Dazla

Design B is better, very nice stuff

The Crackers

Thanks for the comments, guys. I suppose I should mention that the light bulb means nothing. There's nothing to get, I'm afraid.

This design was the result of some "stream of consciousness" sketching. I know people like a gag or some kind of story most of the time here, but this has none. I was just sketching and this came out of my pencil. :)

i carnt spel

i'm sick of seeing octopuses and shit but man that is insane... loose the light bulb and i'd 5 it!

cwilli14

looks good, keem them comin!

Dandelionbreeze

Wow, I LOVE the style! I'd like to know what kind of method you use :)

I don't think the light bulb needs to be removed. It changes it from just being a shirt with an octopus on it (you could get that at any old zoo) to being a unique design.

beautiful..nice!!! :D

ilovecuttles

I must have this shirt!!!!!!! awesome design!!

chelly

mad skillz yo

potatoesrus

i love the way the light brightens the front of the octopus, this is simply gorgeous. way to bring back the octopus, man!

quaycur

don't apologize, there may be a lot of octopi subs lately, but very few are as good as this. your color use is excellent. go with placement b or something close to it. and while i know it's totally irrelevant, i really like your presentation layout.

deadbeathero

This is great! I would mos-def buy this shirt! great drawing and cool design. Never though i would wear purple...

bektravels

Another totally awesome design. Love this, love your others too. $5.

katnipp28

most impressive octopus design i've seen. glad you entered it :]

Option B is better, in my opinion.

jessicatehmoose

Amazing. Option B is just grand.

I...want this.

...like, a lot.

vermillionhorror

The difference between your design and all the other octopi shirts is yours is actually well-drawn! Beautiful! $5
(I like option B)

habodes

This is beautiful.

The Ending

holy crap on the detail! 5!

Awesome. The subtle texture and contour changes achieved with brushstrokes is fantastic. I also admire the way you have achieved the diffusion of light using that scribbled glow. There's been a surge of purple shirts recently, and this is now my favourite one. 5$

Greenleaf

love it!

WhoWhatWhere

NO MORE OCTOPUSES PLEASE
