It's #cephalopodwednesday and I bring you a Dumbo Octopus, the most adorable octopus ever! The similarity of the ear-like fins protruding from the top of the mantle of the Dumbo octopus to the ears of the Disney character, Dumbo, the Flying elephant, led to the common name, dumbo. Maybe this one wants to be called Greg though. What do you think?
In this video I decided to keep everything except for the eye and the blue background on a single layer. This added a bit of complexity in adding form to the octopus, but in some ways it made it simpler.
