Here is what I did with the water bottle, toy doll's eye and teeth. His beaky nose is a dinosaur skull.

Here is a view from the back. He has a "spine" going down the back of his head, running through his shell and protruding, tail-like, underneath the shell.

And here is he with some color added.  I need to go in and do more with the colors. He's a little bit monochromatic at the moment, and probably a little too bright as well.

He definitely needs some kind of environment to stand in. At the moment, he's in a little brass soap holder. I think my family is starting to like him more. The kids have named him Squidonaut. To me, he looks like a diver merged with a squid, and left under the sea for a long time.
Stay tuned for more adventures with Squidonaut.

I like it a lot reminds me of the saying, "Welcome Squid Overlords" Maybe this is what happens once we do? eek

Ok. This guy is freaky, but cool. You never promised not to scare the children, did you?!

You're right, I didn't! Chris is saving it as evidence for Child Protective Services, I think!

Filly Folly,I don't know why I was so compelled to do this, but now that I've done it, I've seen several squid/human images... in the book store, that sort of thing. I don't think I'd welcome this guy, although I am getting kind of attached to him. He has a face only a mother could love!
