Fine art illustration of a Moon Jellyfish (Aurelia aurita.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The Moon Jellyfish was completed on 11.20.2011. Mostly translucent animal, such as jellyfish, can be pretty tricky to render, when the foundation of the drawing is black ink. Usually, I have to get a little creative and make a somewhat unreal image. Although the illustration is still scientifically accurate. One method to make an underwater animal pop a little bit off the page is to give it a slight luminescence, such as this jelly has. The drawing is based on a photo by Charlene-SJ.
