Hi everyone, perhaps some of you remember that I´ve drawn an illustration of Mesonychoteuthis in 2011 for "The Encyclopaedia of New and Rediscovered Animals" by my good friend Karl Shuker. Some time ago I started digital painting, mainly of marine life. I wanted to make a remastered version similar to my original Mesonychoteuthis in dorsal view, but without some of the minor inaccuracies which I made at that time. It´s still not fully finished, the suckers adn hooks need still some more detailing in particular, and I am still not fully sure about the eyes. I decided to make also another version in a more lateral view, which I share here too. It has at the moment just a very simple background without any additional shading, and I can make easily versions with or without extended tentacles or with a white background. I really tried to make it as anatomically accurate as possible (except for the number of the suckers and hooks in the lateral view, but that´s something I can still fix). I also didn´t add any shading which I usually use in such depictions within dark water, to make the anatomy easier to see. If you see any other inaccuracies please let me know. I tried to use really all available photos and videos of fresh dead or the one living specimen to make it as naturalistic as possible. I was also thinking about a paler version as well, without the stereotypical red shock coloration. If anyone of you should be interested to use one of the illustrations for any projects please let me know. This are just screenshots from my graphic program in low resolution, but the originals are quite big and detailed.
