Doodle 131 - Animals Acting Strangely (part 2)

Soooo... I wasn't very productive art-wise today, but you can blame it all on one thing:

Skyrim expansion.

Oh yeah, I got sucked into Skyrim again, those darned dragons!

I can proudly say though, I am single-handedly saving that world, like boss! Hey, someone has to keep the virtual peeps from getting charred or attacked by who knows what, and that someone is me... at least on my xbox account anyway hehehe... ah yeah.... I am such a dork.

Anyway, I did manage to get one more doodle today, hurray!

Heather T. suggested an octopus trying to roll itself smooth like an armadillo. And you know what Heather? I looked it up and yes, armadillos can make themselves into perfect spheres:

ZOMG they can do what?!? The top of the head and tail close the sphere perfectly, that's so cool!
 I learned a new thing today, and yes we have armadillos here, I hadn't seen one that wasn't an ex-armadillo with its four legs up on the side of the road until a couple of years ago.

Andrei and I had gone out for a walk early in the morning when I heard this odd noise... sounded like a miniature horse galloping on the concrete, we rounded the corner and there it was... a galloping armadillo hightailing it toward us, gotta admit I squealed and freaked out a bit because it was so funny looking, it made a sharp turn and disappeared into the woods.

And now for the poor octopus:

Ehn! So... many... tentacles... - mechanical pencil on plain sketchbook. Aprox 15 mins.
And now... I am off to bed, my eyeballs are tired from all the adventuring.
