I painted 12 pictures of the same motive in 12 different styles of existing animations and/or comics to get an idea of how long they take to make and which could possible be fit for a bachelor film. I’m quite fond of Amelie Flechais style, but I still have to investigate a bit more.

Dalmatian Linckia (Linckia multifora)

Also known as the Mottled Linckia, Spotted Linckia, or Multi-pore Sea Star, the dalmatian linckia is a species of Ophidiasterid sea star which occurs in the Indian Ocean and Red Sea, including South Africa, Madagascar and other areas along the African coast. Dalmatian linckia are typically seen at depths of around 40 meters (130 feet) and seemingly favor coral reefs. Like other sea star speices, Linckia multifora is an omnivore feeding mainly on algae, bacteria, and the occasional small invertebrate. Several species of parasitic snails are known to make L. multifora their home, especially the Eulimid snail Stylifer linckiae which is typically associated with L. multifora

The Port of Split, Croatia da Kevin Walker
Tramite Flickr:
Split is the second-largest city of Croatia and the largest city of the region of Dalmatia. It lies on the eastern shore of the Adriatic Sea, centered on the Roman Palace of the Emperor Diocletian. Split was never part of our intended trip, but due to work being done in another Greek port of which the ship could not enter, we ended up here. And I’m glad we did, it’s a very beautiful little town.
