Another nudibranch piece! These guys have so much character. Just look at his little :3 mouth! He looks like a flaming dragon with a cute cat face haha.
Here is a Dendronotus iris
pouncing onto an unsuspecting tube dwelling anemone (Pachycerianthus fimbriatus
) to eat it! Inspired by videos of it attacking the anemone here: [link]
Painted in watercolor. Kind of a different style for me. I rather like the airy children's book quality to it. :3 Didn't scan so well picking up the subtle colors though. Got lots of practice painting washes of wet into wet to get gradient effects. I also built a full clay model of this scene to get the perspective and composition. Art copyright me.
