Hi, my name is Jessica and I'm an artist and today we're going to draw a baby octopus. So the baby octopus is so tiny they're like not even the size of a finger. They just are about this big here. So we're going to just start with the head which is round at the top and then it has these two little eyes on the side. So we're just going to draw those little eyes and those are black. So you can color those in black and then from there it's pretty much all legs. So we're going to bring one little leg down and you can just curl up the ends and they've got two in the front, there's one and there's another one and basically when you're drawing their legs you're just taking a line and putting a little bit of swirl to it and there's one on the other side. It's just a little swirl. It doesn't have to look exactly like the others because they're doing stuff with all their legs separately. So as you know an octopus has eight legs so there are four in the front, maybe you'll see one in the back here, maybe another one over here. So there are six and then there are going to be two more in the back. So you don't actually have to draw those two but if you want to you can bring them down so that we can see them, just the backs like that. Finally these octopuses just have some little spots on them, little spots on their tentacles and on their head and those spots are going to be black or brown or dark gray, just like that and that is how you draw a baby octopus.
