Very nice! Reminds me of several of H. C. Escher's works. Is Escher actually inspirational to you?

There's irony for you - fish learning to fly, birds learning to swim. :)

I've always thought about this kind of thing. Have you ever noticed that if you're under water, and you look at the surface with your eyes still submerged, you find yourself reflected in it, just like above the water?

Why? :)

kopakapaul Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2010
Well, the animals that live in the air are in the water (birds) and the animals that usually go underwater are in the air (fish). The jellyfish seemed to remain underwater.

However I shouldn't be telling you should do your art. You did a great job nevertheless.

Oh, okay. I was just using the jellyfish to mimic the shapes of the clouds in a way. :)
