That is not my orthocone in #27. The artist's name on Deviantart is "Mallimaakari". Probably an alias like my "Modelnut". He lives in Hellsinki. I am in Georgia, USA.
Today I am going to brainstorm and make sketches of my base. I figure I need to get the cone "water-borne" and secure before I start sculpting tentacles.
Sorde! Good to hear from you again! I will take your suggestions to heart probably this week. What do you suggest for the eyes? Something like the modern nautilus? Or maybe like those seen in that Discovery Channel program with Nigel Marven, fleshy bulbs with pits?
I will look up the Spirula to see if it strikes any sparks.
Thank you everyone!
