Nice ever get the feeling the "pet" knows more about the situation then you do, I know I did

I gotta say i love these with the beautiful art style, the comical humor, and the straight out adorableness of the drawing itself just bring the whole drawing to piece of art well done i tip my hat to you madam  CURSE YOU!

That means that she'll get a good suitor. You know he's a good man when he's willing to continue courting you even after an encounter with your protective octopus.

I love your style. It reminds me a lot of Livia Rusz drawing/painting style, which was the greatest visual delight of my childhood, I grew up with her books. I don't think there's enough of her artwork online, but some might be. I still have the books.

hahaha LOVE THIS!!!

There's a soundbite from Marvel Heroes (used by - fittingly enough - Dr. Otto Octavius) that suits this scene so well:

"Away with you!"
mizstorge Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2013
This is my favorite! I suppose (in my headcanon) I look at Otto not so much as a pet, but as an alien lifeform Victoria is introducing to life on the surface of Earth. And I think Otto has feelings for her, certainly of the proprietary nature, but possibly more. Yeah, I ship these two!

I love the flower.

Otto range mode! He seems to have gotten bigger here.

A smart suitor will bring a bucket of fish along with flowers.

I love how he's turned red! I forgot Octopuses can change colour. She seems so amused by it all, and only the man who can either win over Otto or get past him, is really worth it!

So cute and love how Otto never opens his eyes!

Victoria must be so lucky to have Otto as her pet :3
Myrethy Featured By Owner May 28, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
I love the fact that Victoria is giggling at the sight of her suitors being assaulted by Otto.
Farore6 Featured By Owner May 31, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Good way to stop people hassling you :)
Myrethy Featured By Owner May 31, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
Yep! Where can I get my own?
Farore6 Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Not a clue unfortunately ;)

Myrethy Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2013  Hobbyist Writer

Victoria, dear, can I borrow Otto from you this Saturday night? Just for 2 hours...
SinjaAussiaAngels Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2012  Student Digital Artist
So cute! Like how you draw attention to the Lady by make her blue. It brings the focus to her out of all the chaos.
ksj7700 Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Wow. They were all at her house at the same time. She must be pretty popular. Maybe not so any more though.
Saraa1996 Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Fufufu she won't be having boyfriends anytime soon :>

I would like my own domesticated cephalopod. (Did I say that right?)
MissEllaAllanPoe Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
I love this picture, especially the contrast of Otto's fury and Victoria's expression! Your work is fabulous; I'd comment on all of your pictures, but then I'm afraid of being repetitive! :heart:
Gryffgirl Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2012
Really funny-I love it! I would feel sorry for those poor guys except for the fact that they were humiliated instead of hurt! :D
MzGrimz Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2012  Student Digital Artist
Very cute! :)
loquinmalie Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2012
Are you planning on making more prints available? I love Otto and Victoria, but I don't want a holiday specific print.
Chappieladdie Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2012
You might say that the suiters has their hands full =)

A wonderful masterpiece. Love the mix between the charming characters & the chaos. Now, what am I going to do with the chocolate and flowers I just bought at the store? ^^; Have a nice day ladies and gentlemen.

Well Victoria doesn't seem bothered at all by this!
momerath74 Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I adore the expressions on the would-be suitors' faces. Otto seems to have put them in their places! This is wonderful. :)
WhiteWolffie Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2012
Eeeheeheeheeee. Flying chocolate bombs headed right for the Octopus' mouth and her hair.
