Were you studying a model or a preserved specimen? This is really beautifully done work: simple and calming.

I love how traditional this is...as if it were ripped out of the journal of a 18th century sailor-turned-naturalist. Great job!

Thank you! I find my studies of this kind do tend towards the historical too.

Ah, I love cephalopods! I have a nautilus from the Academy of Sciences as my phone picture! Awesome.

Love the hint of iridescence on the nautilus shell...
