This is probably the last of this series, as I’m now going to try to focus on a bit of site redesign. If it ends up taking too long, though, I’ll probably put one or two other random things up, just to keep the site from going stale…
(That’s “nautilus of unusal size”, in case you were wondering.)
Even though there’s not too much that’s really different between it and a normal overweight squid, I like how this one turned out. Probably because it feels a bit more dynamic, and the shading isn’t quite as… tangled… as it sometimes is.
I should also point out that if it buries itself body-first in the sand, it can pretend to be a giant scary sea star with a gaping maw where its body should be. I don’t know why it would, though. Maybe it just gets bored easily.
As the title states, it’s kraken week here at Nathan’s Blog (soon to be given a new, more interesting title, but that’s another story and shall be told another time). And okay, it’s probably something more like kraken time-period, but kraken week just flows better.
In any case, you can probably expect a few more odd-looking cephalopods in the coming days.
Well, here’s a quick portrait of the crazy parrot herself. (At the moment deciding whether or not she really wants to trust that I haven’t booby-trapped the new perch I just installed.)
Okay, this is the last one. I promise. Then I’ll move onto something more interesting. Like earlobes or spleens.
Though now that I think about it, spleens (despite how fun it is to mention them in casual conversation) don’t look very interesting. Unless, of course, you find a generic lump of something-or-other interesting.
In which case I have some slightly used gum for sale…
