This video tutorial will teach you how to make this cute little octopus, using Blender's "subsurf" (smoothing) modifier, which allows you to create smooth/organic shapes rather easily. You will also learn about 'proportional editing' and will get practice applying colours (materials) even to different parts of the same objects (the eyes).

The video is 9 minutes and 19MB. It can be said to be in two parts: the making of the body and head (the blue part) and the making of the eyes. It is available in two formats: SWF file or Web page .

This video tutorial was inspired by a tutorial at www.biorust.com/tutorials/detail/77/en/
