this is the first time ever i actually worked on a background!! yay :D :D im liking the turquoise colour very much--and credit for that gradation effect goes purely to photoshop ^^;

this drawing is supposed to represent my manga/script project "atlantis clique". the main characters are cammy (the girl in front, daughter of the famous dr harold spencer), nik (the diver behind her, an underwater archaeologist), and rick (the billionaire bishounen in the background). don't mind his pretty-boy look though, he's really REALLY arrogant and he has many secrets! :XD:

if you have any suggestions please tell me as i don't really know how to fill the right side of the composition. at the moment it's very left-heavy and looks a little off balance -_- thanks for viewing!

Hey! you spelled it right! yey! I hate having to corect everyone a bizzilion times, but I'm much too stuborn not to. lol,

Yeah, Britney Spears and I are polar opposits so I hate it when people write my name acording to her spelling. Brittany is old english so is my last name (by accident). I'm a history girl so old english is one of my favorite subjects. My name suits me quite well, and so I dont want people to simply distinguish me and my name by the same name of that slutty pop singer.

This is going to turn out awesome I can tell!

The glowing thing around Rick`s neck also is on the left side of the picture. I guess it`s to late to change it but I think that if it had been on the right side, just behind Cammy, left would be less heavy. :) Maybe you can do something with that. Don`t get rid of the rock though...I love the rock! :heart:
You could paint something in the right lower corner (that implies that the divers are almost at the bottom though. Maybe they aren`t) ... Myst, some dark ground etc.
I don`t know how you want the picture to look, mysterious? Then you could add some strange fish or plants. I also agree with the reef idea that Ultema brought up, but reefs are often brightly coloured and could kill the mysterious atmosphere (you could use dark coloured reefs though. Also if they`re in the deep sea reefs won`t grow there.
If they`re not very far under the surface you could add some water-reflections in the right upper corner that implies that the surface is there. Also that would imply that the characters are diving straight downwards, Which maybe wasn`t your idea. :)

I hope my muddled comment made sense. Good luck with your project, this is great allready!

thank you for your suggestions!! sorry for the late reply, i've been so ill lately :dead: :) hmm, you're right about the glowing thing around rick's neck--it's too much work to change! ^^; the rock? oh, you mean THAT rock :D i think i'll just add another rock on the other side, what do you think? it might work hehhe

i'll try implementing all the suggestions you've given---thanks so much henrike! :hug:

hmm, a little rock could work indeed, not too much.

Sick? You poor girl! *hands Andie some nice warm tea*

Glad to be of service. :D

HenrikeDijkstra's avatar
I`m well, thanks! I hope the flood-thing at your place will be solved soon (and that your feet will stay dry!). Do you live nearby a river or has there been much rain lately?

Arrgh. I'm bloody hammered on Bell's. Let me dwell on it whilst sleeping. Perhaps I can provide some trouble shooters when I resurface in the morning. Take care :heart:

perhaps some implied depth? Reefy stuff... ship armature, animals... tough, because it's really clear and you can see the figures too, don't wanna get rid of that. xD Gosh I hate tough decisions like that... but well done on their poses; very fluid like.. suspended in water 8D!

thank you very much ultema! yes, reefs should do it! i'll be looking into your gallery for more inspiration ;)
