PK Art Drill #32: Creature: War Octopus

Well maybe not that imaginative of a pic but it works. Because octopus can change colors the armor and weapon is clear. I found out octopus are very flexible. I think they can fit through any thing that is larger than their beak and eyeballs so perhaps this guys (or gals) armor is flexible too or responds to metal commands to change shape.

I tried my best to get a good pic of it, as I don't have a scanner.

Nope nope its not octopi. I did make a mistake though, it should be octopuses.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Octopus

A note on the plural form: Fowler's Modern English Usage states that "the only acceptable plural in English is octopuses", and that octopi is misconceived and octopodes pedantic. Octopi derives from the mistaken notion that octopus is a second declension Latin noun, which it is not. Rather, it is (Latinized) Greek, from oktopous (ὀκτώπους), gender masculine, whose plural is oktopodes (ὀκτώποδες).

I think Wikipedia is wrong. Octopus is a Latin term, and in Latin the plural of the male nominativus (words that end with -us mostly) get -i. Simple as that. Only if octopus were fully integrated into an English word, the plural could change, but I doubt that actually.

It could be octopi, because the nominative plural of octopus is octopi, if it were a latin word; however, it is a Greek word, so octopodes would be the correct.

After a long art break, I have returned to the drills. I wish they were more active like the ol' days though.

Hmmm... Now i'm wondering why we all just posted pieces when this Drill is how old?

Because, it was empty and needs to be filled up. If we actually kept up with the original pace of the drills, they would be continuously updated. But, here we are with 10,000 topics that have 0 replies. I think it's a good goal to fill them all up. ;)

Oh, ok. I thought it'd be Latin, as it ends with -us, and normally Latin words do, and Greek often ends with -os. But I'm pretty much a newbie to both languages, so you'll probably know better.

You need to find a hosting website first, you can upload your pictures there and then link them here. DeviantArt doesn't allow direct linking, and Photobucket and Angelfire often don't show pictures (to me at least) so I suggest ImageShack.

First time I contribute to these in quite awhile.
I realized after I'd already rendered it that it really resembles a squid more than an octopus (in my native language we don't make the distinction). Anyway, here's my rather hasty octobot animation (http://web.telia.com/~u18510119/temp/octobot.avi) (XviD, ~150 kB)
And a still (http://web.telia.com/~u18510119/temp/octopus.jpg) for those who want one.

Man, you guys suck. A opportunity arises to draw something completely random and you go all serious-like.
