Color squid

Here's a colored pencil version of the Leachia squid I posted earlier. I spent maybe about 2 hours on this, possibly less. It helped doing the detailed pencil drawing first. I'm trying to keep things pretty quick lately. I really like the anatomy of this squid's tentales. Normally they (or more conventional squids) have 8 main tentacles and the 9th and 10th remain within those and project to catch prey. With the Leachia it looks like tentacles 9 and 10 just hang out. I don't think the other 8 could conceal them well, but maybe the squid can move some ways I'm not picking up on.
