Fossil Fish Sketch

Loosely based on Diplomystus, here's a fossil fish I've been sketching while waiting to pick up my son from daycare.

Love it! Make it a series...

Thanks Emily! I may. It's sort of studies to get me in the right frame of mind for a big oil painting I'm working on. Next one is a two-headed ammonite.

Might be fun to digitally colour this too.

I love seeing fossil fish in gem shops.

whats the two headed ammonite, is it a fictional creature?

Glendon Mellow said...

Me too Marco.

The two-headed ammonite is sort of speculation. Ammonites existed, and I got to wondering if there could have been a two headed mutant some time.
