Viktopus Sketches

Here are some early sketches of Viktopus.  Lots of ideas rolled around my head before I decided on a final design.  I received a great critique from a good friend and learned that some of the features needed to look more like an octopus.  That prompted me to do more with the shape of his head and arms.  There is more to anthropomorphism than simply putting an animal head on a human body.  Certain features have to be recognizable in order to get the desired effect.
