    oh i loooove this! i want the whole story!

    why does he want to walk with humans? whats so great about them? what could he possibly desire on land so much that he wishes to leave his weightless watery world?

  • Maybe he was bullied buy squids? I haven’t rounded it off fully but I plan on selling the rights to Pixar. If they’d take it that is.

    You have your vey own distinctive style Lloyd which is very attractive. I like your sense of humour too. I hope his other three tenticles are in his helmet otherwise he would be a Pentapus.

  • Thanks very much Brian! Your comments on my style and humor are greatly welcomed! The other 3 tentalces are inside the suit, operating the levers to move the thing.
