Digital artwork created using Corel Painter v X for use as a WWF First Day Cover envelope for Bermuda. What fascinated me about these adorable little critters was the tiny size of the ‘fry’ and the way they link up with their tails.

Wow! Awesome! Totally Awesome!You never cease to amaze me.
Thanks Corri. I’ve painted seahorses before, but have never seen (or painted) their fry, especially in relation to the adult. Quite amazing. Nature never ceases to amaze me…X
I love seahorses….this is great…. beautiful detail….. :)
Thanks Pam. I’ve been toying with the idea of keeping some, as I keep tropical fish, but I understand they are pretty high maintenance, being saltwater critters…can’t just fill up the tank from the tap… X
I’ve heart that too….they are gorgeous creatures and lovely to watch….. :)
I used to have a tank of tiny seahorses. Your work is AMAZING!
Thanks Corri. I’d be interested to hear if they are easy/difficult to keep. I’d love to have some but only if they aren’t too high maintenance. Fresh water trops are easy enough but saltwater exotics are something else, I would imagine….X
wow,,,,, what else is there to say ? all this work you are uploading, is freakin amazing. beautiful. just beautiful.
Thanks Hon. My work seems to be the only thing that doesn’t go pear-shaped while everything else does. XX
ps , found the sea horses easy to keep, cept they had a death wish apparently. if it hadnt been for the filter, the rock, the anemone etc i am sure they would still be alive.
In a moment of pure impulsiveness, I will probably get some. XX
you wont be disappointed the only word i could describe them as is MAJESTIC.
They are certainly captivating to watch and have a grace about them that is quite unique. XX
Beautiful work !I love seahorses !
amazing stuff Owen!
