I think I weirded myself out a little bit with this one. It didn’t weird me out when I made the original sketch, but the finished piece weirds me out.

When I was little, I used to think the “Portuguese Man O’ War” (which is not actually a jellyfish, I know) was called the “Poltergeist Man O’War”, thus the title. Sounded better than my alternate title, “Jelly-Face”.

I purposely didn’t want the “face” to be too realistic. I wanted it to look more like this bizarre creature was manipulating its hood to resemble an eerie human face, perhaps to trick sailors into attempting to rescue a drowning comrade or something, only to be stung to death and slowly devoured.

Ew. Yeah. Definitely the creepiest thing with tentacles I’ve drawn.

I attempted to use my new digital camcorder to record myself drawing this. I’m not sure how much it caught, as the battery died while I was drawing because I wasn’t smart enough to plug it in while I worked. So, perhaps in the near future, I’ll have my first traditional-media drawing video uploaded to YouTube. :)
