Jelly fish fascinate me. Shortly after a family trip to the Monterey Bay Aquarium, I started working on this piece. There are a few things going on in it. It's all drawn programatically, including the gradient fill. Some of my favorite jellies are bioluminescent...they light up! If you watch closely, you may notice that mine light up too.
The part I'm most pleased wtih, is how it fires a sporadic bioluminescent moment. Every so often, an individual jelly will light up it's nodes. I was inspired to do this by real jellies which can put on some spectacular and subtle light shows.
