Most of this seahorse is pale, like a creature evolved in a place where there’s little to no light, but his fin is decorated with a rather morbid splash of red. His eye swirls with yellow and white, making him look blind. He lurks in the swirling waters next to a barnacle-bedecked skull.
Despite all these rather ghoulish details, there’s an adorable sort of whimsy to him. Go figure.

Above, you can see some of the subtle detail in the seahorse, his creepy yellow-tinged eye and the blue shadows on his pale body. Below, you can see him in a frame, hanging out with a squid.

There’s no tentacles, but these cute little seahorses will have to fulfill your quota of sea creatures for today. They’re sort of making an awkward heart, and sort of having an epic staring contest while they hang out on their bit of coral together. I think the green one’s gonna blink first, though.

Above, you can see them up close and personal and get a better sense of their body colors, though the eyes really are a nice vivid yellow as seen in the temporary frame below.
