Long time since my last piece, hope you like it non the less.


Medusozoa Cucurbitaceae  (commonly known as Pumpkin Jellyfish) is a rare specie that lives in dark caves and wrecks. They only come out in the night of the 31th october to scare fish and reproduce.

Scaring fish increases their hormones and semen production.

Its a pleasure to see again your pixelart ^^

Touch a jellyfish and you'll see it's ssslimy

Thanks for the nice words =)

I hesitate to vote for this only because it doesn't seem very "slimy," not because I don't love it! Your rendering is amazing. The creatures are ethereal and spooky, just as jellyfish should be - and yet adorable.

Fingerfoods (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 8/23/2010 06:06

Oh man, the colors are so smooth.

I'm almost certain you have one of my votes. I mean, come on - jellyfish! Who can resist a jellyfish??

 Nice colours.  I especially like the small one in the distance, with it's goofy 'I'm going to scare' expression

bonehead11 (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 8/21/2010 04:04

So simple yet so beautifull. Well done!! 

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 8/20/2010 10:01

Really good design. The transparency along with the pumpkin glow facial reatures are really effective.

Ergg (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 8/20/2010 08:54

 Génial rosen ;)

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 8/20/2010 03:38

Niss (Level 4 Deputy) @ 8/20/2010 02:56

 Wait, I just noticed that this was for the challenge. Great piece. I will likely not stand a chance with all these great pieces this week. :P

cure (Level 11 Pixellite) @ 8/19/2010 11:39

great work on the translucency, as has been said. very cool design too, and the backstory adds interest as well.

EdJr (Level 9 Nidan) @ 8/19/2010 11:36

big brother (Level 11 Admiral) @ 8/18/2010 22:50

Very eerie and Halloween. Love the translucence and texture.

avo (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 8/18/2010 22:18

Sweetest creature! 

ui_ (Level 4 Deputy) @ 8/18/2010 22:06

DawnBringer (Level 10 Pixel artist) @ 8/18/2010 18:39

Oh, very moody...great choice of contrasting colors. :)

Delicious (Level 10 Capo) @ 8/18/2010 17:54

 Really nice. I agree with Skamocore, you can definitely see a jellyfish and it's amazing how you did the transparency. 

Christoballs (Level 7 Neanderthal) @ 8/18/2010 17:14

il y a des parties où ça frôle le banding, tant tu veux lisser le tout.
cool idea and good execution!

FrostPumpkin (Level 6 Aquamarine) @ 8/18/2010 16:41

Reworked background a bit.

Thanks everyone :D

Buddy90 (Level 6 Manager) @ 8/18/2010 16:36

Man, this piece is awesome.

Aelyrin (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/18/2010 16:32

 Ahahahah. I think the best part of this is actually the description.

onek (Level 6 Hitman) @ 8/18/2010 16:29

excellent...!! tho i agree with ska that the bg could use some work,  the light/ gradient could be more obvois imo

Satsume (Level 10 Capo) @ 8/18/2010 16:27

great piece FrostP.  

skamocore (Level 11 Dolphin) @ 8/18/2010 16:22

Welcome back. You definitely nailed the jellyfishiness.

Maybe some AA in the background - you still have three colours left. The light in the top left corner is really quite jaggy.
