Octopus by Scummy Octopus by Scummy
I've been meaning to submit this for a while but I haven't been able to put together a decent selection of photos. Since it's still being held captive at school I'm submitting it anyway! Animal form design project, cut paper. It has spunky spots and a mouth on the bottom of it. Wish I had a shot. Thanks to Florence for the bottom photos.

UPDATE - I was reunited with this piece a little while back and got a couple of new photos to display. The bottom view doesn't really do it justice. It looks like it's lost many suction cups since I've last seen it but anyway...

I could have come up with a long, contrived and verbose rationale for selecting Octapus by ~Scummy (and I suppose technically as of now I still am), but the reason really is - who can say no to a cephalopod? I mean really. Especially one this cool. ( Suggested by digangi and Featured by zeruch )

woah. that looks so cool! It must have taken a long time? But time well spent!
I've done a few projects from paper and it takes a great deal of time and actual talent for things to turn out. so way to go! Im impressed.

Aw, I'm really sorry to see that some of the suckers did go missing. This is a gorgeous project, you paid so much attention to every little detail, even the shape of the octopus' pupils. <3 I really like how you did the mouth, too, that adds a special touch to the paper creature!
