Doodle 173 - Octopus Wrangler

Remember the elf from yesterday? Well, I decided to work on her a bit more today, add some details and finally a bit of a story, her name... for now it is Octavia, she was adopted as a baby by a family in a fishing village.

Octavia was an exceptional diver, not so much a swimmer (weird I know, but it can happen, ask Andrei), early on she discovered that she could understand octopus and befriend them sometimes easier than human children her age.

She grew up to be an authority in all things related to cephalopods and is well known for her discovery of a species of octopus that can live for long periods of time on land (given enough water here and there).
