Hi!
I hope you like my new entry! :D
I always wanted to do something with a sea monster, in this case a sea tortoise but hey, they sure do look like sea monsters..

Well ALLOT of layers, cutting out using the pen tool, lighting and shading, masking sure came in handy :) and at the end some nice tweaks..

Please leave a comment saying what you think :) And I do appreciate critique so keep them coming! :)

Cheers. (5 years and 2448 days ago)

Nice imagination and colors....not sure about the light source as its coming from behind them in the background between the clouds.

Nice image...agree with MnMCarta and freejay about great use of color over entire image. Perhaps you could bring the front end of reflection of boat to meet the boat edge. In fact, the reflection probably would butt up against the edge of the boat and not have any space of water without reflection. Does that make sense? Also, maybe have the fishing pole cast a shadow on the sea creature's head. I'm not nitpicking here...it's a great image. Just thought these things might help. Great job, author!

I'm not interested in an argument...but I will say if the light source is from the back, then the boy's chest and viewer's side of the turtle's head wouldn't be so bright. What's creating such brightness on those parts? I think what you're going for is to be able to see everything. The way the light source is now...truthfully they would be more like silhouettes.

author says:

Thank yo very much for the advice pixelkid! I'll see what i can do with it One thing you said about the shadow of the rod on the turtles head, since the light source is coming from the back as you can see? I'm not sure about the shadow of the rod being formed on the turtle, but hey give me some argument as to why your statement is true Thanks again

Lovely concept, great mood image!

Lighting is a tricky; I think it is possible to have 2 light sources and one of them can be out of the picture and therefore casting light on the boy, boat and turtle head (in that case there would be a slight shadow on the turtle head from the rod and the lighting could be a bit more consistent for the turtle and the boy). Just a thought as I know it is too late to change anything.

You have done a lovely job on the whole and as I said at the beginning, truly lovely concept and mood!
