Looking more into the sea theme I thought of a sea urchin resembling a similar form to that of a virus. Also looking at weirder other creatures from the bottom of the ocean could bring together a luminescent display of colour.
For the idea of desatureation looking at dead coral when its all dryed out and drained of colour almost like it has been fossilised or turned to stone. As pointed out by Phil on this topic, as i will have no narration or text in this concept it will be vital for me to make it clear who are the 'good guys' and the 'bad guys'. Suggesting that I look at the masters of distguishing good and evil, Disney. I think this will be very useful when it comes to designing the viris and the cells.
