Artist's Description

A creature made of a eye ball and squid sort of body. They spiral downward going deeper and deeper down a endless pit or whole that never ends as more and more are sucked up. The creatures may be composed of human eyes with the lower body of a squid or they could also represent human souls spiraling downward to hell that also have squid bodies for motion. Or they could simply be some sort of odd large eyed creature. They communicate with electrical energy that they fire from there eye.This could also be used in defense but in this picture it is primarily to talk to the other eyeball.

I have done vortexes before and found I started this work long ago but never finished this. I decided to bring back the demons of my past and continue with the vortexes and squid/eyeball creatures as I never felt I had done them justices(sometimes I get a idea and start working to it but perhaps it never becomes what it could of became.) I decided to give the squid/eyes another chance. I finished the drawing and added much more color. I used a combination of pencil,watercolor pencil, and a bit of charcoal and oil pastel. I added water to the watercolor pencil marks and used a paintbrush to paint the watercolor marks. I used oil pastel to make the energy/electrical communication type things the eyeballs are firing at one another. I now plan to do more of this sort of thing as this drawing was not vary big and would like to do a large scale painting although so far this is closer to my original intention.

I should say I tried to make them look and behave as creatures would. I figure they are sentient brings and wish for them to be preserved as a organic lifeforms that moves with its squid legs and is quick and agile.

Other theories to there existence is that they perhaps are some sort of space creature. Alternatively I have this back story with my hand creatures about a world after humans. Super smart germs have carved machines out of the human left overs. I figure that the super smart germs/microorganisms may of created these as machines. (organic living machines) that they control. They may be living inside them. I should also say in a lot of my works I add the squid/eyeball creatures to my hand creatures. The eye is like the brain and the squid body is the neck. The hand is the spaceship.
