I’m so Jelly!

Hey everyone! I found some amazing photos of jellyfish (hence the title 😉 ) that I thought were really beautiful and I wanted to share them with you! The man who photographed these is Aaron Ansarov and he did an amazing job with these in my opinion. What I really liked about these was not only the vivid colors but also the focus on the details that we normally don’t see. I love watching shows that explore nature and highlight the beauty of the creatures among us so this was right up my ally. Although these photos are really nice to look at I also found them very inspirational in a way. One thing I really liked about these are the natural patterns and shapes that occur in these photos. At times they look like some kind of abstract art rather than a jellyfish. These also kind of reminded me of ink blots since the shapes are so unique and seemingly random at times. I could easily see these recreated with watercolors or even pen and ink! If you go to the website, which I will link below, they are have some images that move and a video which are also really cool as well. Below are some of my favorites and the rest you can find at the link below. I was really inspired by these and I’d like to try create something showing that in the future so who knows! ;D

Eye See You…

Hey everyone! I recently found some really cool photos of eyes that I wanted to share with you! If you’re new to this blog I have a strange obsession with drawing eyes. They are the first thing I start drawing when I’m bored or otherwise. I’m not sure why but it’s just something I do so this group of photos really caught my eye. I’m sorry, but I had to, eye just couldn’t resist. Okay, enough of that, but I seriously thought these were pretty cool.

The majority of these are animal eyes, which was interesting to look at since I really don’t pay attention something like that. Also, all of the these images are really saturated with color and are just beautiful to look at! I can definitely see myself using some of these as inspiration within my own sketches, since like I said I don’t really pay attention to the physical features of animals like I do humans. As soon as I get some free time I want to try drawing some these and maybe even merging them with human features…who knows ;). Unfortunately Flickr does not like people just grabbing photos so I can’t post any images here but there will be a link down below. My favorites are the horse fly (first image), cat, and blue-eyed dog. Until next time!
