Twin Hippocampus 2 by Reptangle Twin Hippocampus 2 by Reptangle
WIP
I am still fooling around trying to get a hippocampus sculpture to work. It's that stupid tail. Doesn't make sense and it is difficult to put a base under. Sometimes I mess with a sculpture like this for yearsCURSE YOU! .
 This image is heavily photo shopped. The mirror image helps me to look at it in both ways, plus makes a cool design.
 The original sculpture is pink sculpy. I removed the color . Hippocampusses aren't pink...or  are they?

I think these look gorgeous.  I can appreciate the dedication you have to making it look just right!

Did you know that a dolphin has a pink-ness to it up close and personal?  I got to swim with a few dolphins a few years back, and up close you could see their pink muscle through their gray and white skin.  It was quite a pretty shade.  ;-)

I love your work!  You are so very talented!  I wish I had the ability to create things like these!

It's great. Why not just regard it as a stylised sea horse?

I may. I don't have a clue what I'm doing.

Very cool design paired like that. If you could weight them enough they'd make awesome bookends.

Well, if they're pale maybe they can get sunburns like beluga whales and turn pinkish :D And fish come in such an amazing range of colors.

Sorry, it's not often I get so taken by a sculpture, but I've always had a thing for hippocampi (?). Very few are done well.

The problem I have with hippocampi is that there aren't very many positions you can put them in! Almost every one I have ever seen is leaping like this.

Perhaps on the belly, with the tail arched behind him?  That might be do-able . . . :-)  Or you could have it basking in the sun, as mermaids are sometimes depicted sitting on a rock, basking.  It might be fun to sketch him in many different poses and positions like that!  :-)
