“I remember being spellbound when I saw my first seahorse as a child. It seemed as exotic and remote as the seahorses of myth and legend and equally enthralling. Ever since, these extraordinary fish, and their relatives, have fascinated me. Seahorses have captured the imagination of humans for thousands of years and have a powerful presence in myth and legend.”

Thanks to Ben Kwok at Ornation Creation on Facebook, who provided the template for the two seahorses, I had the pleasure to create my own fantasy of these creatures.
I used MIcron .01 and .005 pens to fill the template and add the additional tangles. It is colored with fine line pens, Prismacolor pencils and shaded with graphite.
Hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I enjoyed creating them
Thanks for viewing. A comment is always appreciated.
