Blue martini by Chael Blue martini by Chael
An unusual blue martini on the beach. Someone knows how to live it up in the surf, just hope he doesn't tip over.

Inspired by the beautiful pink sand of Bermuda's beaches, and the fun summer weather. Also nudibranchs, because they rock.

Protip: (sea)slugs love alcohol. :p

Glaucer the glaucus nudibranch mer (c) me.

I'm sure he wouldn't want to be caught in someone else's martini though. Great job!

This is beyond gorgeous, Chael! I love the vibrant colors and the subtle pink of the sand. I've never been to Bermuda so I can't say I know how you feel about it ^^; but this is beautiful none the less. The thing that caught my eye the most was the glass ball hanging off the glass (which looks freaking fantastic by the way). My Opa used to collect them and I always found them very beautiful ~^^~ This is a great taste of the islands!

Nudibranch to the lower left: Chromodoris annae? :B

I knew Glaucer liked stealing poisons and such... but never knew he had a taste for alcohol. XD; Beautiful picture, though! I wish the South Jersey Shore (where I live) were as beautiful as Bermuda. We just have an obscene number of laughing gulls. And tourists. And my town's beach is way too big (no fun making a quarter mile walk just to get to the water).

Yeah... some species are sort of hard to identify because there are just so many nudibranchs out there. XD; But they're all very gorgeous little critters!

That...
That's just... so damn hot.
It's nice to see a male figure in the martini glass for a change XD

Also, beautiful painting style. I like how some of the strokes are still visible, but they all still blend so well. :D

I figured XD That's why I said male figure instead of just male. The torso is masculine to me.
Also: I love how you bring your interests to your art. I learn so much about different life forms from your artwork!

Significantly more male than female yes, but not either. The form is androgynous as there are curves and a very subtle bust. Yay for learning, it's fun.
