Step 1

First, draw the body using a large rectangle. Use a thick outline to create a more adorable character. On the bottom of this shape, you can draw two tentacles on both sides using curved lines. These tentacles must be integrated to the original shape.

Step 2

Continue working on the bottom of the animal by drawing four additional tentacles. Once again, make sure these tentacles are made from long curved lines and pointed ends. On top of the head, draw three small circular patches.

Step 3

For this last step (at least for the drawing part before adding colors), sketch some eyes using large circles. Inside these circles, draw two small pupils also made from circular shapes. Finally, complete this lesson by creating a large mouth made from a single curved line.

Time to add colors! This fun cartoon octopus can be filled with a bright purple color. You can also use green, orange, blue or even white if you prefer. The eyes are white and the pupils are filled with a darker version of the same purple color used to fill in the body.
