At the bottom of the octopus body, add two tentacles using curved lines.

On the left side, add another tentacle similar in shape to the previous two.

Now add the same octopus tentacle on the right-hand side.

Depict this octopus tentacle slightly raised upwards. Draw it on the left-hand side.

Draw it raised up like the previous one and place it on the right-hand side.

Draw the octopus’s eyes as two circles and its mouth as a short, curved line.
