Commission for an Etsy customer. Only instructions were (1) Octopus and (2) Steampunk creation. The rest was up to me.

Inspired by steam trains and deep sea diving gear. If you could see each cog, there would be 80 total :faint: The back of the head is glass with liquid inside.

9x12, graphite

Animal Ref:

:glomp: Thank you very much! Heh, I had a major brain freeze when trying to put the cogs on. Had to "simplify" by having only one row instead of two. I tried to make it look like the creature could move in real life wheels to power the cogs to turn and move the arms and all that. :faint:
