STEP 1. Okay lets start this first by drawing out the circle shape for the top of the bulb like head and then add the shape of the bottom of the head. When finished the head should come out looking like a light bulb. From the bulb shape add the eight lines for the legs.   STEP 2. Now you will draw out the oval shapes of the eyes and then thicken the legs as shown here and when you do this make sure the tips are pointed as you see here in this second step.   STEP 3. In this next step you will thicken the arms once again until they look full and thick like they should be. Once that is complete you will then detail around the top and side of the eyes making them look bulging. And that is pretty much it for this step. See I told you this was going to be an easy tutorial.   STEP 4. Well this is your last drawing step and all you will do here is draw out the remainder of the shape of the arms in the back of the octopuses body. Once that is complete draw out several suckers under the arms shown here and then add some eyeballs. Once you have done this you can add some spots on the top of the head and erase the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one.   STEP 5. Once you are done your octopus should come out looking like this one. You have just learned how to draw an octopus step by step. All you have to do now is color it in and that is it you are done. I hope you have learned something new today with this tutorial.   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. Step 5.
