The Aquarium #13 by Julio-Lacerda The Aquarium #13 by Julio-Lacerda
Here you can see one of our marine reptiles being fed with a recently deceased Nautilus, coming from our registered "food farm".

The feeding hours are a great attraction on the Aquarium, when the visitors are able to feed some of our animals from a safe distance.

This series looks very great and I love the realism in it.
Had also an idea for a prehistoric aquarium but ordered by timeperiod.

I'm a big fan of the aquarium series, it looks so life like. I had a similar idea to it, though it was ordered by time period.

It's quite a lovely pic, as graceful as an ichthyosaur should be :) Great work, it seems to be quite playful too!

That looks amazing! I love how you showed the silhouette much lighter as though it is reflecting off the glass. :)

Nice Nautilus, although I guess that kind of food with shell it's a challenge for an ichthyosaur :)
By the way, in what group of ichthyosaurs you based the scene?

No species in particular, but it's mostly based on the later, more advanced forms such as Ichtyosaurus itself.

I'm working on a Dimetrodon, but since I have some commissions and projects to do I don't know when it'll be done. An inonstrancevia might come soon as well.

Sorry to reply to an almost year-old comment but nautilus are tough and have to be boiled to be edible. They are often served as soup.

Apparently they taste like snails, but I am unsure if the source was serious or a joke.

Please make more in this series.

Careful not to hit them on the head. That might make them a bit angry at you :D
