Haven't submitted anything substantial in a while so i thought i should add this:) (Smile)

its another of my strange sureal images that i seem to be doing these days.... :o (Eek)

anyway i think the feeling behind this image is one of seperation with the world above...the figure is also deteriating rapidly into a confusing mess of nothingness, well thats how i see the image atleast....not quite sure whats going on inside my head these days.

i also didnt want to go overboard with the detail...so i detailed the areas of the image that needed it for enhancement...in fact i would rather do more images using these methods than stay the slave to overly detailed pictures, afterall art is not all about detail as far as i know....to some it is though:( (Sad)

enjoy:) (Smile)

p.s. sorry i had to re-upload...DA was acting up as usual.

I've been to Limbo...no joke...It's amazing how close your picture is to what my experience in Limbo was like. I was underwater also, but I was with whales myself. Keep it up!!!

you are incredible... and i like this technique of only putting into detail what you want the people to concentrate on...

I think this is startling; I really admire your use of color to create a mysterious and sinister ambiance with a feeling of urgency with the outstretched arms that seem to reach between Heaven and Hell, life and death, or Limbo and some other portion of the Netherworld. You have an extraordinary talent for shading and realism, I especially like the girl's air in the water...don't stop drawing. :lol:

I love the title. It drew me in to look. And it was worth it. The floating underwater feel looks great. The colors are perfect. :+favlove:

It is one I really like. It speaks to me. I don't know. I just like it.

really interesting idea...the pose seems a little stiff to me, but for this pic i kinda like that. your attention to detail and your ability to..uhhh...use light correctly (i dunno lol) really amaze me, this is really good
