My Ernst Haeckel Transcription

Looking at flora and organic forms for my art project, it is natural to venture into a biological process. Ernst Haeckel is a biologist slash artist who has recorded organisms in the most spectacular way, taking biological forms he knew and transformed them into alien-like sci-fi forms.

Check out a selection of his intricate drawings below; I particularly like his small colour studies.

Here is my transcription of one of Haeckel's shells:
