The Cuttlefish

New painting time:

This is very different from my usual stuff, and I don’t imagine it will get many views. However, I felt the need to do it after reading about Sepia Apama – the giant Australian cuttlefish – and being depressed by the sad conservation story surrounding them. (In fairness there’s nothing utterly unique or uniquely awful about what’s happening/has happened to S. Apama, but it’s still an unhappy story.)

Also, shopping baskets turn out to be surprisingly hard to draw; note that I’ve cheated here and completely ignored perspective/projection.

There’s a higher-res version available on my dA page.
