I took this picture of a jellyfish back in 2017-ish and its still by far, one of the most beautiful pictures I've taken
sneak peak for a commission im working on!
I would put there are many benifits of being a marine biologist sticker on Naksh's forehead
Reposting some of my old traditional artworks here. Looking back, they are all quite dull...I am bad with colours so I never incorporated them into my ink based works.
Please do not repost or use my artwork without permission.
i think younger me would b very proud of how far my art has come
Re that last post
There was an episode of outer limits like that its like one of the five good outer limits episodes
Another art class thing!

Been a while since I've drawn her.

A rare giant phantom jellyfish has been spotted by the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute. It’s only been seen around 100 times ever, as it primarily lives in the midnight zone of the ocean (3300-13000 ft deep). Despite that, these jellyfish can be found in oceans all over the world, except the artic. Its bell is approximately 1 meter long (3.3 ft) and its ‘tentacles’ are 33ft long ‘mouth arms.’ This bb was captured by a remotely operated vehicle (ROV) Doc Ricketts in 4K. She is beauty, she is grace, she will use her oral arms to pull you in and eat your face
The giant phantom jelly with 33 feet-long mouth-arms seen off the California coast.
This ghostly giant is a rare sight. But in November 2021, MBARI researchers spotted this giant phantom jelly (Stygiomedusa gigantea) with the ROV Doc Ricketts 990 meters (3,200 feet) deep in Monterey Bay. The bell of this deep-sea denizen is more than one meter (3.3 feet) across and trails four ribbon-like oral (or mouth) arms that can grow more than 10 meters (33 feet) in length. MBARI’s ROVs have logged thousands of dives, yet we have only seen this spectacular species nine times. (more info here)
didn’t really think that through
In my printmaking class we learned about Intaglio prints, which is done from ink that is below the surface of the copper plate we had to draw into. The design we created was transferred to the plate where we etched in our lines with a sharp needle point tool into the surface of the plate.
Then after we draw our lines the plate was dipped into acid to deepen the lined so when inked and printed the lines are darker in value. So the longer the plate stays in the acid bath the darker our line will be.
