With all the beautiful new tiles, I started playing with color gradients to form Athena's legs and suckers. I wanted her body to appear full and almost undulate, as well as reflect the amazing variety of colors and patterns an octopus can have.
Factoid: Ever since the octopus lost it's shell during the evolutionary process, one of its best defense mechanisms is camouflage. Each species can blend seamlessly into numerous environments and with an almost unlimited color range and over 16 textures!
And because their beak (mouth) is the only remaining bone in their bodies, it dictates the smallest hole or crevice he or she can squeeze through. It is very rare to see an octopus beak, as they hide them carefully at the center of their bodies. Their beaks are extremely small, relative to body size, but powerful enough to break through crab shells and other bones in the way of a good meal.
