Been sketching a lot of anglerfish lately ….. with twists. So many possibilities with this amazing creature.

" The anglerfish is an incredible example of how living organisms can find a way to survive in even the most inhospitable environment. The Angler Fish lives more than a mile deep in ocean water. There are over 200 species of anglers, which are named for their method of ‘fishing’ for their food. A spine of the dorsal fin acts as a ‘fishing rod’, tipped with a fleshy ‘bait’ which is often luminous. Other fishes are attracted to this lure and get eaten. Most anglerfishes live near the sea bottom. There are four kinds: batfish, goosefish, frogfish, and deep-sea angler."

This poor bugger is in a bit of strife.

    Great! The way the shadow at the rear gives depth is class! It does seem like it’s underwater.

  • Thanks Rustyoldtown! The head was sketched n scanned then the shadow and cord where done in Illustrator, then put together in Ps and coloured … yeah i think it came together nicely.
