Thanks! :)

I was just going to cover him with a slight bumpiness, just to give him some texture. But when I applied the bump map, I ould only see it in between his tentacles. Like I said, I know close to nothing about materials.  ???

Looks like its got a different doodad on each tentacle for for different tasks. Like, a thing for catching fish, another one for gutting said fish, a knife, a bottle opener...

Could be a Swiss Army Poctopus...


Haha  ;D

Here is an update...I am awful at texturing, so he is gray for now. I tried some things, but I really have no idea how to make bump maps etc. work right. Anyway, here is the render-

Again, all input is very welcome. Thanks!  :)

I also suspect volume shadows are the culprit.

Just getting back into Anim8or a bit. Had a really really unproductive day today and had to start something. Here's my octopus- no real reference image aside from a quick doodle I sketched up. Not meant to be anatomically correct, just something to get my creativity going.

Any comments, suggestions, questions, or fun making welcome.  ;)
Happy Holidays!!  ;D

Looks pretty good. Making your own cards is the way to go!  :)

I am wondering why the rug, the fireplace, the picture above it all look so gray. The rest of the image is so rich.
