Some old Otto concepts. I went through so many different designs for Otto, but looking back they don't exactly look a million miles from the finished one. The toughest decision was whether to give him eight legs and have him sorta scuttle around like a spider, or give him a more human look. He was actually born with only four legs, and is considered a freak in the Octopus world, but this means he has found it easier to adapt to life on dry land (also eight legs would have made it rather tricky to animate I reckon). 

  1. The octopus  is a cephalopod mollusc of the order Octopoda. Octopuses are among the most intelligent and behaviorally flexible of all invertebrates. They have numerous strategies for defending themselves against predators, including the expulsion of ink, the use of camouflage and deimatic displays, their ability to jet quickly through the water, and their ability to hide!  Yeah that last one sounds about right to me.
