Amidst the Phytoplankton by Exobio Amidst the Phytoplankton by Exobio
WHEW. This one gave me trouble, shading and stuff. I recorded it, so I will post a video of my process tomorrow! It's too late right now.

Gapuri really like swimming. And I have also somehow managed to draw Soluth in a pose where you can't see jehs other arms. They are there I swear!

I had been meaning to do another underwater picture, but I've been lazy. ~vantid's beautiful picture "Sea Combing" inspired me! ([link]) Go look at her gallery she's an awesome artist!

Wow, that is beautiful. I love the little comb jelly, although it seems a little too much like it's Terran counterpart. Is Soluth an individual, or a race of Gapuri?

Also, this isn't really relevant, but I see you shortened their arms quite a bit. The only issue with that is they're now long and cat-like with short arms, and it looks like they'd have a hard time moving through the trees with a bodyplan like that.

Thank you! And the reason the comb jelly looks so Terran is because I got lazy haha. I might update at some point with a more alien organism.
Soluth is an individual.

This isn't the best image to base what the rest of the body looks like, it isn't as long as it used to be. In the process video there will be a bit where you can see the rest of the body, though I erased it because it was A) too long B) really funky looking.

It was worth the effort, this looks great. The lighting and atmosphere is very gloomy and realistic. I like the little flap of skin between his shoulder and neck, too, haha.

youre welcome love the presentation of all you work im currently adding age efects to mine so they look like old pictures out of a field guid people seem to like it so far! But back to this i like the creature in the backround i also lie how you kept the old gapuri head design
Reply

Exobio Featured By Owner Sep 20, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Yeah I decided to go with the same head design, figured that's fine the way it is. It's just the body I've changed a bit.

Upper arms are less dextrous, they are meant more for climbing/gripping. Secondary arms/hands are far more nimble.
