I really like this artwork, hooray for dinosaur...type...things. lawl. I don't know anything about these creatures, but I do know that you've made them look cool :XD:

I like the colours you used in the picture above, the calming blue goes so well with the pinks. Also, the under-sea and watery effects are gorgeous.
However, I think I like the second picture better. I like it's composition; the way the top half is above water and the second half is below, that effect works really nicely. I like the green colours, and the rays of sunshine streaming in through the trees; lovely! :)
My only criticism would be that both the sea and swamp look a tad crowded with all those animals. But I suppose that was part of the assignment?

btw, did you really paint this digitally? Truly stunning painting skills you've got...anyway, excellent work! :+fav:

ada referensinya sih ini, researchnya mulai dari buku, ke museumnya, coba gabungin info dari internet, sampe ngunjungin petshop buat research tekstur kulit ikan, kadal, dan amphibia....
thanks banget!btw, aneh nih, udah diwatch, tapi koq gak ada notifikasi karya baru-mu ya? dan ini terjadi sama beberapa temen yang gue watch juga.... DA makin ngebingungin....:(
