This is an amazing thing. The delicacy of the skeleton, the lushness of the sections in the jars, the way you use highlights and shadows ... I'm a bit staggered. Thanks for posting it!

Saw this piece on your tumblr first and then here, and I hadn't realised first it was from you. Seems a little different from your usual subjects while still… very characteristic, somehow.

Anyway, it looks absolutely fantastic. The concept is really neat, what's with the bones and showing the conserved animal through glasses. The choice of colors is really nice, too, and I love the little touch of blue here and there. Also it has a very beautiful, flowing composition, which is not so easy to achieve with such a… how would you say. Complicated subject.
I just. I really, really like this piece, probably one of my favorites from you. It's beautiful!

For a speedpainting idea it's genious. That's often the case with relaxed and spontaneous idea "just for fun" =D I like a lot your idea of skeletton outside and fleshy inside the formalin. That resumes perfectly two of the ways to preserve animals in study place and museums.
And I like the seems to be alive appearance of the snake in the bocal, as if his living spirit was detained in the jars. That's quite mystic. Feeling reinforced by the tags and symbols written above (like the infinity symbol). Ah ah! sorry I lack of sleep and I'm saying very strange things ^^;

Anyway I like a lot this compo! :heart:
Plus I'm fond of the colors of the whole .

A very clever idea and beautifully executed. I've said it before but can't resist saying it again. I love that rough watercolour feel you have in your paintings.

Makes me think of the Burke museum... I volunteer there and prep specimens, but only with ornithology and mammalogy. There's a pretty big backlog of reptiles in jars though, that's why it reminds me! ^ - ^

Beautiful work!

This is brilliant. I love how you put in all those bones (must've been a pain) and all the different jar positions and then there's the concept of it all. Just so much yesssss

The concept and the execution of it are equally awesome. It gets me thinking on the biology field, and the uses of preserved specimens in relation to living members of the species and such :D Like how the knowledge gained by them can eventually in some way benefit the live ones or something along those lines... I'm not very articulate tonight. |D In short this is really cool and I like it. \o/
