These are a series of 3-D resin paintings by DeviantARTist Kenglye. He creates the 3-D effect by pouring a thin layer of resin, painting that layer, pouring another thin layer, painting that one, and repeating until he's built up a real looking fish or octopus or turtle. Most impressive. The costumes in the costume contest last night? Not so much. It looked like everybody just made their costumes in the car on the drive over. Like actually while driving.
Keep going for a bunch more. Oh, and the octopus heads that poke out of the water are pebbles.
Thanks to my frenemy Terry, who just bought ten $20 lotto scratchers in a row and they were all losers. Now, everybody laugh at him with me -- AHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. God that felt good.
