Octopus by PSHoudini Octopus by PSHoudini
This was a winning design for a contest in worth1000 were the objective was to make a photomanipulation using the word of an animal. In my case i used the word and animal 'OCTOPUS'.
I hope you like it.

Will also be participating in the contest 'bring your type to life'
(i hope they'll accept this as an entry even though i didn't use any existing 'font'.

If you are interested, here is a video of the speed process:

Daily Deviation

Given 2012-12-12
Octopus by =PSHoudini is a wonderful example for the fact that typography really has no boundaries in any medium! An original and skilled photo-manipulation that will probably put a smile on your face. ( Suggested by Dani-Owergoor and Featured by pica-ae )

How did you make the legs of it to become letters? how did you make them in such shape?

i cleaned out the background and used the puppet warp in Photoshop cs5 to shape the tentacles.

This is some of the best typography I've ever seen! It looks so natural, and you combined the different stock elements so well that I initially assumed it was a single painting (a very realistic one), not a collection of separate elements. I've sure this was extremely time-intensive, but if you had the time to do it, you could probably make a whole book of these (maybe the alphabet?). Your water manipulations in general are extremely lifelike. Amazing, creative piece!

I immediately heard in my head from Frank Zappa's Saint Alfonzo's Pancake Breakfast song: "~Octopus~" :-D

My friend runs a group for lovers of octogons. I was going submit this until I realized didin't pertain to octo-gons, only octo-. Maybe we can take as a "Favorite" or something :-D

In enie event... awesome art!
