Nammu, Primeval Goddess of the Sea
Favs: 1SBS: n/aHi-resRank: 2/8Score: 67.8% (33)20777 views

In Sumerian mythology, Nammu was the primeval sea that gave birth to An (heaven) and Ki (earth) and the first gods, representing the Apsu, the fresh water ocean that the Sumerians believed lay beneath the earth, the source of life-giving water and fertility. (5 years and 725 days ago)

Good idea. Mountains need shadows, the figure could use more defined shadows, if not a reflection. Edges of the figure & globe could use some subtle blurring. I'm not sure about the texture on the model, but if you like it, that's your call.
PS: Good find on the mythology theme.

author says:

Thanks for the compliments and the suggestions. I added some shadowing for the mountains and also slightly softened the edges of the sphere and model. I don't believe that you would find more defined shadows on such turbulent waters as these. It was a specific choice I made not to have them defined so they looked more natural. At least that's how I see it. The choice of texture was to make her look like she was made partly of water and also so it just wasn't a nude woman on water. Nammu was part of the sea and that's what I wanted to portray.

I still don't see shadows of the mountains on the water. The rest is better.

Hopefully they are a bit more defined now.

Really nice one (although the bottom jaw looks a bit large)

author says:

It's exactly the same as the source image(3) which you can see in Step one in the SBS.

Great scene. I like the positioning of the claw on the nose. it would be nice if you could apply some color to the bigger T-rex.

author says:

Thanks! The big guy isn't a T-rex he's a (take a deep breath) Acrocanthosaurus Atokensis, one of the largest theropods ever. Dinosaur colors are pure conjecture but I tend to go along with the camouflage scheme many experts favor and that's the coloring used on this Dinosaur Park exhibit seen in the source photo.

Good positioning of the claws both on head & jaw. Over all a great blend of sources to create a dramatic scene. GL author!

You are good for finding these nice sources to go with the source image. It shows that the fight for survival was intense. I can hear the neck bones cracking under that strong jaw. Ouch! Very good and sharp image again. Good job.
