I noticed down below that you said the color was all digital. If that's true, I'm really impressed with your technique. I actually thought it was watercolor over colored pencil. I like that you generally keep to muted colors-- that gives it a really nice, almost Audobon-- or Haeckel--like feel (I'm sure there are other wildlife artists who would make a more apt comparison, but those are the only two I can think of at the moment).

I also like the way you add text to your illustrations. I hope you don't mind if I take a cue from your style for some technical drawings I'm working on.

Thank you for the feedback! :meow: All my artwork seems to default to a natural, muted pallet, no matter how colorful I intend it to be... I guess that's not a bad thing.
I don't mind if you use some of the stylistic tendencies I have; I really want to try to make something in a red and teal scheme if you won't think I'm copying you. ;p

Yes, I agree. The submarine of the sea. I found it fascinating that they can adjust the ballast in their shell by pumping water in and out.

Haha, it doesn't really; you pretty much just have to piece together your own degree with zoology and marine biology courses, and a lot of independent study!

I tried to make an individually created program at my school for scientific illustration, but they said I should just double-major >.> I just took a biology minor so I could graduate on time.

I like the colors in this. It gives it a very nice vibrancy, and I think you captured the underwater atmospheric perspective very well. The texture of the colored pencils really works well on the organs and viscera, but you may want to try something that's gives a little less texture when you render the shell. There are also some striations on the shell that you can try to capture by using a light grey-ish blue to indicate their shadow.

I also like the added effect of the tunicates in the scenery. Maybe you could also add some extra corally-goodness?

Also, your text, though it's very informative, needs to be consistent in size. the Pleurovisceral ganglion and Nidamental gland are both very small, and it's extremely disctracting. Try aligning it so that the word "ganglion" lines up directly under "Pleurovisceral" and "gland" lines up directly under "Nidamental". You may have to decrease the overall size to get it all lined up correctly.

Thank you for the advice :meow:~
I had a lot of trouble with the text, but I probably shouldn't have given up on it.
I could use digital color, maybe, to render the (outside of?) the shell, since that lacks texture... it actually all digital color, over an ink and graphite drawing.
Thanks :)

It kind of has three mini-brains, two are under its mouth.
The pedal ganglion controls the tentacles, and the pleurovisceral ganglion controls the organs, and the cerebral ganglion, I wrote "brain", I assume must control everything else. :)
