For this blog post I will be covering the remaining eight ink colors from Anderillium Inks and representing their Cephalopod series. A few of their bright ink colors brought a smile to my face. Here’s my writing samples from this series where I wrote a brief summary about the ink or cephalopod’s name.
Here are my swatch cards representing the eight ink colors. You can see some sheen in a few of the colors.
Here’s some inky swatches I found from my swatch card collection that came close to or matched the Anderillium Ink colors.
Flapjack Octopus Orange is a bright orange ink color with some lovely shading. I have a handful of orange ink colors and these two, Damili and Shoreline Gold, were the closest in color.
Vampire Squid Red is a wonderful medium red ink color with a bit of gold sheen. If I did not already have Sushi and Tassie Salmon, I would probably get a bottle of this ink color.
Bobtail Squid Green is in between Subline and Green Lime and leans more towards Green Lime.
Spiral Green is a lovely bright medium green ink color with a tiny bit of dark red sheen along the edges. I was able to get a close match with Green Green and Midori.
Blue Ringed Octopus is a tiny bit darker than Australian Opal Blue and Australian Sky Blue. It shows a bit of red sheen around the edges.
Flying Squid Blue is a close match to Soda Pop Blue and Asa Blue. It’s a medium blue ink with a bit of red sheen and is similar to Soda Pop Blue.
Collosal Squid Dark is a unique ink color with some black sheen. It’s a medium dark teal green color and quite different from Eroded Bronze and Velvet Storm.
Cuttlefish Brown is a lovely medium brown ink color and is a close match between Melon Tea and Bronze. Cuttlefish has some black sheen which makes it look like a dark brown ink color in my writing sample.
Majority of the colors in this Cephalopod series are very similar to the colors I already have in my inky collection. They appear to be moderately wet inks. The bright colors are very appealing and I would not hesitate to use them in my artwork.

Very nice overview—thank you! Is that bleach creating the orangey spots on the last set of the brown ink cards?

Thank you for your comment. The underlying spots and blooms you see on my swatch cards is actually water. When the ink is still damp/wet, I add drops of water so I can see the underlying inky colors after the ink and card dries. This is helpful for me when I use the inks for my pen & ink sketches.
