Let There Be Jellyfish by Simanion Let There Be Jellyfish by Simanion
Medium: watercolours, some acrylic.
Size: A5

Mmm, cosmic jellyfish spiral...that's how the universe started I assume. There's a bit of a 'creation' theme going on here, referenced both in the title and in what the jellyfish begin to resemble as they fade away ;) I bet they're still out there...a single jellyfish the size of a galaxy....just floating around, chilling and such. I wouldn't mind looking out into the sky one night and seeing this :o

So it's Christmas Eve: Merry Christmas! This isn't Christmas-themed in the slightest. Unless I photoshopped Santa hats onto all of them. Or if it started snowing Jellyfish tomorrow morning, in a spiralling fashion - then it'd be remarkably and pre-emptively appropriate. Wouldn't that be something... *hopes*

Anyway, I like how this turned out - hope you do too! :bounce: Merry Christmas to you all! Thanks for sticking with me for another year, despite my severe lack of updates and less-than-prolific output, lol. I will get better I promise.

Let There Be Jellyfish by ~Simanion

Suggester says: "When I first saw a thumbnail of this in my deviantwatch, I thought for sure it was a fractal piece. The fact that it's a painting is astonishing in and of itself. The spiral of jellyfish was beautifully done and fades perfectly. It's a wonderful blend of the ocean and space." ( Suggested by SerenaG519 and Featured by MidnightExigent )

Stunning effect and the detail is brilliant fore A5. Monotones are brilliant when done well, and i love the touches of colour which help set the picture off. Awesome

Thankyou! Yeah, go for it! You can always start something and just leave it on your desk as you slowly complete it when you have time. I often do that.

An immense, infinite ocean. Oh to look up at the stars at night...it's like theres something in our brains stopping us from even contemplating the true magnitude of the universe, or else we'd explode. Jellyfish? Why not! :D
