Is Eight Enough? - PG by phantom-inker Is Eight Enough? - PG by phantom-inker
My octopus girl (octo-girl? octogirl? octo-mermaid? hmm...), waiting for... well, waiting for something; I'll let you guess what. She really needs a name, I think, and a good background story.

This is intentionally uncolored and oversized. I thought it'd be fun to let the general public try to color/shade one of my drawings for a change, so I've submitted the original inked version here to see what people do with it. It's been a darned long time since I last submitted something to dA, and while this isn't quite a finished work, it's finished enough for people to enjoy it. If you like it enough to color it, go right ahead. :)

A copy of this image can also be found in my FurAffinity account ( [link] ). This version has been edited down to a PG rating to bring it into line with dA's ratings policy. The version at FA is the original and has an R rating, but you must have an account at FA and be over 18 if you want to see it. This is still marked "mature" here since although it's pretty tame, it might be too much for young minds.

I will probably color this myself eventually, but I thought it'd be fun to let you all have a shot at it first. Enjoy!

Aww, she's cute. I love octogirls. Let me reassure her, eight is plenty. xD

I'm not the best of artists (my gallery proves it - most of my work is simple flat-panel colors with the occasional texture/pattern added for effect)... but would you mind if I took a stab at coloring this?

You're quite welcome to color it if you'd like. That's what it's there for. That said, my friend Jessica Raven colored it already, and I have a colored version that I did too. But you're still very welcome to try coloring my artwork, if you want; it's a compliment to me even to have you ask.

I'm not getting any backstory, but the first name that jumped into my mind was "Tara". :shrug: :D

Does she have the ability to change her skin color on demand? :)

Hmm... not that I know of ^^;

Tara's an interesting name. Let's see what other names people come up with. Maybe we'll hold a name-raffle or something.
