Octopus Limbs - speedpaint challenge

For David Maas's Ask A Biologist speedpaint challenge on Art Evolved, I chose the question, Do octopus limbs grow back?





Though the answer is no, I gave my octopus a few split digits, as though a new tip grew next to a partially severed one. Painted in ArtRage in 30 minutes.  Still learning to speedpaint digitally: I didn't expect the "glitter" setting to make that much texture under the other layers of paint.
