Gliding through the deep Monterey Canyon off the coast of California, Taningia Danae searches for prey in the darkness. At nearly 7 feet long and armed with claws instead of suckers on its eight arms, taningia danae is a formidable predator.
This is the first in a series of deep sea squid illustrations that I am working on. I welcome and encourage creative critiques, especially on any physicality or behavior that I may have misinterpreted.
