Color Shifts in my creatures

Meet my little dragons! or Sea Horses! Birds?! or whatever they look like to you..
These are another result of my Simultaneous Contrast explorations.. I used the same green/blue for both, then used orange or red (the complement of the neighbor of green-blue) for my ply-splitting experiment..
I like the way the colors interact - and the way the creatures seem to be commiserating about something.
I may have created them but I not sure I speak their dialect since they haven't told me what they are!

The next photo is of their older cousin who started out as an initial "S" for me - but took on a life of its own.
In ply-splitting, you can pull on the threads - or not - as you pull them through, to shape what you're making into something quite unique.
