That. Is. Awesome.
Wow, I haven't had a piece of work crack me up like this in a long time. Great job, I especially love the little octopuses in the foreground. Great work!

Awesome character and great render!

The animator in me would like to make the pose more expressive - like have him half-lidded, slightly unfocused, with the wine glass in the right hand, maybe mouth open in anticipation of his next bite. He does seem frustrated in this one though, like he's fed up of mixing up his spaghetti and tentacles, so maybe I'll shut up and just say nice one, made me smile

Oh that is fantastic.

Gorgeous shader work and the face is just priceless. The level of effort you've gone to to set the scene up for the character is well worth it.

Really great stuff. We don't see originality like this enough in the gallery.

That's brilliant! He looks like a cross between Oscar the Grouch, Davey Jones and a particularly carb addicted octopi. Faaaantastic!
