Ink 6 – The Cuttlefish Light

Requiem is lost in the Ghostly Reef, until it is embraced by the light of a resplendent little Cuttlefish. She believed that was the hermit she sought, but in fact he was only a pupil. He decided to help Requiem, lighting the path with his presence, to the refuge of the ancient hermit.

I did the lineart with a black pen and digitally finished in photoshop.

Is there anything better than a shark made from cheese graters?

The answer is yes… an octopus made from cheese graters and electric whisks.

Greenland shark!

The shark itself:

spoopy / eerie / creepy / spooky / terrifying / ghastly / sinister / CURSED

It is a wholesome friend that I find too interesting to be spooped much by.

Their eye-eating, copepod parasites that are thought by inconclusive evidence to lure prey to the shark through bioluminescence?

spoopy / eerie / creepy / spooky / terrifying / ghastly / sinister / CURSED

Parasites I can deal with. Eye dwelling creatures are another matter entirely.

A bare-bones look at bizarre fish

Modern fish make up a huge part of Earth’s ecosystems, and cover a lot of niches. Predators, omnivores and herbivores are all found in this diverse group. Millions of years of adaptation has sculpted their bodies into the various forms and shapes we see today.

Looking beneath the surface of a fish’s skin can reveal a lot about the ecology of fish – the most diverse group of vertebrates on Earth. Use our image sliders to see under their scales.

Love me a bizarre fish or two!
