Just having fun doing this and when I was done it looked like shrimp thus the title, which immediately made me hungry for a shrimp coctail....the hazards of doing art...:D:D:D hope you enjoy and get a chuckle out of this..

Another unique and vibrant piece which affixes my mind to it. I think you have a new genre. What would you call it?

Everyone thanks for all the kind words for this little work.

PD - the style is really lifted from the shoulders of giants Asger Jorn the danish painter and Alan Davie both whose work I find liberating and amazing. It is from them I find the colors and style as a basis. But digital media provides its own metaphors also with layers, drop shadows, blending modes and the other countless tools in AR and Photoshop, and Painter.:):):D

Suha - I must confess that I rarely work on a piece for more than 1 hour and usually less that that. Unlike your great portrait that took you days to complete. I am not that disicplined or patient. The color and textures seem to come quickly ( of course I have be fooling around with painting for 55 years, and digital work for about 12 )... ;);)

I love this and I swear I see a sand flea in there. :)

This colorful composition of sea creatures is really gorgeous, especially on the sandy texturized more neutral background You brilliantly created to lay them on!

This bright colors are cool! It reminds me of a blacklight poster.

lots of cool things to look at and great techniques here. love that upper left that takes on a sort of Klimpt like quality and also the many textures and surfaces. the shiny plasticine purple tail... awesome. some really sweet usage of the ink pen as well. fun piece.
