Next, he uses colored pencils to draw and paint the details. Using different shades of grey, he gives it texture and depth. Every detail, like the tentacles, suckers, mantle, and head, is done with great care.

After drawing all the details, Tokuda uses the Copic marker to change the color and make it look more real.

Then he uses colored pencils to add the final shades to the drawing.

Next, he uses white acrylic paint to make the drawing look like it is shining. This gives the cephalopod a wet, shiny look that makes it look most like a real sea creature.

When you look at the finished drawing, the creature looks like it could move at any time. Even though Tokuda showed how he drew it, it’s still hard to believe that it’s just a drawing.
