Here we are with the third ATC in my Mythical Beings and Imaginary Friends series.

This mythical being wouldn’t really be considered friendly, however, not in the slightest. The Kraken, legend has it, is a powerful sea creature which captures and wrecks any unsuspecting passing ship on the high seas, pulling it to its doom beneath the waves. It appears to be some kind of giant octopus with many tentacles which wrap and twist and crush anything that it wants to grab hold of.

My ATC, created once again using pastels, gel pens and metallic markers, actually has the head of a shark, with sharp jagged teeth, as if the tentacles weren’t enough. The body tapers away to a strong tail behind it, which I haven’t added to this ATC. And from the body, the many tentacles emerge, all the way down to the poison-tipped tail. Oh yes, I forgot to mention that little snippet.

Like I said… wouldn’t really be considered friendly.

Good job then that it’s a mythical creature, I suppose…



  1. Still Kraken on my friend! 🙂

    Yes the beastie is out there somwhere and there’s a lot hidden in the depths we know nothing about!

    We know more about Mars than we know about our own oceans… 😦

    God Bless!

  2. Playing catch-up, so late in commenting, (apologies), … well … I can see that some find this chap scarey, but … I think he’s smiling! He looks like a friendly sort of chap.

    However … is that a smile which is part of a plan to lull me into a false sense of security? Is he pretending that he’s going to be my friend and all the time he’s planning to chew me up and spit out my bones?
    I think perhaps I’m going to go with ‘caution’ and follow the lead of the others who find him scarey and stay well away.

    Nice artwork Tom.
