Beautiful work! You must have a very skilled, confident and light touch to pull off such work.

Nice work of art!

Are You going to do ammonites as well?

Some of those would definitely make good confusing camouflage colorings and patterns.

Wonderful!

You should sign it and repost, now that you know people are going to save and print it...

Thanks for the feedback everyone!! :D:D
And as to your questions:

-yes i will be doing ammonites aswell. these are just the first 15 in my list, and not necessarily phyllogenetically grouped.

-This is a preliminary sketch, I will eventually incorporate parts of this painting and future ones, into a phylogeny showing the evolution and distribution of colour patterns, among externally shelled cephalopods... (That piece will be digitised and posted here, or on my Devientart account. (Dolevfab)

Please don't print this one! Wait a bit till Im finished! (might take a month or so...) :ammonite01:

It occurred to me it MIGHT be more realistic to show epibionts(more or less:sessile/encrusting organisms)on the shells

Might be..but because I'm trying to showcase the diversity of color patterns I don't think I'll do that. In addition I don't know whether those specific animals had them, because in modern Nautilus there are no prominent epibionts.

They were bound to be plagued by (rheophilic?)trepostome bryozoans,barring ethological and morphological adaptions,I guess.

But hey,as your intent is indeed to show the distinctive "proprietary"(so to speak) colour patterns......

When your magnum opus is complete ,it will make a tremendous coffeetable book:D

I am wondering(aloud,in this case),if there is a correlation between the shell patterns and bathymetry...

There seems to be a relationship. In one paper I read demonstrated that nautiloids living at greater depths had darker color patterns. But the evidence is limited to a few species.

As far as I understand it, most epibionts settled on the shells after the animals were already dead.

That is a work of ART on its own.  I think that that would make a great poster that any fossil nerd would love.  I too would love to print it if and when you decide its OK.
