Orange Sea Pen (Ptilosarcus gurneyi) found in temperate waters of the northeastern Pacific. Each Pen is a colony of polyps -- the primary polyp loses its tentacles and becomes the stalk, with a bulb as its base.
"Play Ground". Joby Otero. 2013. Created on iPad using ProCreate (w/o pressure pen). I painted this mostly during Breaking Bad last Sunday (8/25/2013). I spent about another hour tweaking on Monday. Idea: The ground has come to life and is playing around. It just goes with my main meta theme of "weird creatures doing funny stuff".
