Nautilus Illustration

I've always loved old natural history illustrations and I've wanted for a long time to do some illustrations in that style. This nautilus illustration (shown on a Zazzle iPad case) is the first in what I hope is a series of these. I painted it using GIMP and my tablet, I used a couple stock images of aged and watercolor paper for the textures.

Mini Stories Part IV

Here's the latest installment of my mini stories. I only have a handful left to write now.

Space Cuttlefish
“Floating lazily through space, a shimmering figure is seen from the ship's deck viewport. The crew stares speechless at the sight of the space cuttlefish, all thinking the same thing 'this can't be real'.”

Space Octopus
“The astrobiologist furiously took notes as he observed the space octopus. His scientific reputation would be made once he presented his work on this new species. It was truly a remarkable example of convergent evolution, so alike the earth octopus in appearance yet not even a carbon based life form.”
