Ori and the sunfish by Chael Ori and the sunfish by Chael
Wow I forgot to upload this a few months ago, but I thought it cute enough to put up.

Ori is the main character for my backburner manga project, which is as old as the hills by now. Throughout the stories, a huge sunfish follows him around, but despite usually being in the way, it does some useful things, like warn him for danger and clear jellyfish swarms.

Indeed - they look the be the least hydrodynamic creatures in existance. The sea sure is the best place for alien inspiration though. Things weirder than one's own imagination. :)

Weirdest thing, I've seen videos of them swinging very fast and breaching totally out of the water. Maybe they are misleading us.
