Jellyfish by Qinni Jellyfish by Qinni
I love jellyfish. I wish they were everywhere.....if they didn't sting me, hahaha. My dad said he caught a rainbow looking jellyfish while at sea once, but it disappeared in the bottle he put it in....i wish i could have seen what it looked like. he said it was beautiful.

"why is there blood?" you may ask. Well....why do you think? :D

The background was something i did last year, but i spent a very long time touching it up and fixing everything, plus adding the jellyfish =)

programs: photoshop and painttool SAI

This was the old version:

Holy shit, this is beautiful! Seriously, the colouring and detailing here are top notch, and the background is amazingly drawn. This might just be, a true work of art right here.

Amazing. It makes me feel like someone commited a murder and the jellyfish are like the rainbow after the storm. If I drew something like this, my mom would ask the same question, why is there that blood? I always dont know how to describe people why I did this like that. Really awesome work.

i hate jellyfish i have panic of them
anneeileen Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2017
you can't hate these though
The jellyfish described by your father sounds like a man-o-war. So far I've only seen a tiny one once, but they grow rather large. They're not remotely as dangerous as box jellyfish but they're still very dangerous if you happen to get tangled in their long tentacles.

Beautiful painting and palette btw :)

This is beautiful!
Maybe it was a Comb Jelly your dad found. They are colorful in the sunlight (and at night) and they don't really sting.
I see them sometimes where I live and I pick them up :)

I just wanted to say, thank you for the inspiration with your jellies. I had been farting around with photoshop for the last couple of days and just couldn't get my idea into the computer. DA was down for me for those days. and when it came on, I saw yours. I hope you don't mind if I referenced them for my own. -snugs-

Would you mind if I used this as a background for my tumblr blog? 
mezzalune Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2014  Professional Filmographer
I've always liked finding these jellyfish on google because their colors were so vibrant and they were always on that solid blue background that made them pop even more. I find this picture so much more gentle and so pleasing to the eye. The jellyfish are a perfect addition to your previous picture and the colors are simply amazing. :heart:

I have always been drawn to jellyfish! So I really like when they are used in paintings, but especially like this because its so interesting, and strangely haunting.

Nearly 4 years later seeing this for the first time and it's still amazing.

nice...I am generally repulsed by jelly fish, so the fact that I like this is a tribute to your talents! seriously, I once jumped off a bridge to try to cure my phobias about heights and jelly fish ( the water I jumped into was full of them). I still get freaked when one is near me in the water. But I could stare at this all night!
