Cephalopod Charcoal Series

I was inspired to do a charcoal series on my favorite group of animals, the cephalopods. These pieces were done in charcoal because of the large size that I chose to do them at. The creatures themselves are done in black and white with only the blue pulled in from the background to link them all together. The different shades of blue in each drawing are representative of the depths at which each animal lives. The deeper the blue, the deeper in the ocean they live.
