Fine art illustration of a Peacock Mantis Shrimp (Odontodactylus scyllarus.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The Peacock Mantis Shrimp was completed on 7.4.2013. I had learned about these amazing animals some years ago, and had intended to draw one for some time. I even had an excellent reference photo by Brian Means that had been sitting in my “to do” folder for a few years. (The colors of this shrimp might be the most vibrant of any of the previous animals I’ve rendered.) But today I found the time and inspiration to add this crustacean to the image library.
