IBN: Tomopteris by AM-Nyeht IBN: Tomopteris by AM-Nyeht
"Inspired by nature" is an idea brought to you by :iconevelar: she personally has a ton of art from taking a creature, plant or anything in nature and creating a character design from it.

"Tomopteris [link] is a genus of marine planktonic polychaete. If disturbed, some species are known to make a flurry of glowing sparks erupt from their parapodia." "Others in this genus are capable of dispelling a flurry of bioluminescent sparks from their parapodia. This is used to distract predators, making them go after the discharged glow instead of the actual animal." ([link])

i did read that tomopteris glow yellow, one of the only yellow glowing underwater creatures known so far. maybe the article confused them with dinoflagelates?
anyway, very nice artwork. ;) i just thought i let you know about the yellow. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tomopter…

her special affects she has going, and the character itself is really pretty.
the IBN seems really fun, and it happen to be rather educational

I think she would be a 'special effect' kind of gal considering what she's based on. I really like the IBN, I have a few more lined up to work on. This one took only a day! There making me paint much faster.
