Drawing Octopus - Vector

Title: Drawing Octopus
Media: Vector & Sketched Image
Software: SketchBook Pro, Adobe Illustrator CC

For many years I preferred working with CorelDraw in a Windows PC environment, but just recently, I gave a try to Adobe Illustrator, and although it seems to be a little bit more complicated in the abundance of commands, my verdict is, Adobe Illustrator is not that complicated as it seems. This octopus is my first vector drawing using Illustrator. It represents the many talents an artist can have, but focusing on one talent and being consistent, can yield good results in the long run. The sketch was done in Sketchbook Pro with a Wacom Bamboo Pad on a MacBook Pro. To trace the final vectors with Illustrator, I used the integrated trackpad, not a mouse!
