The Fish-Lizard UPDATED by philippeL The Fish-Lizard UPDATED by philippeL
I decided to improve this drawing made a couple weeks ago:

CONTEXT:
Sketch of an Ichtyosaurus, or "fish-lizard", roaming oceans during Jurassic period.

The eyes of this creature was big as diner plates, such that it could chase squids in dark waters.

Note the diffraction effect on the fin, as if a camera would film it part on the water and part out of it.

It was a marine reptile of the ancient seas.

It's odd and grateful at the same time, it scares me. It could illustrate Buffon or Lautreamont's work ;p
