Something that started as something more humble but decided to grow a bit in scale C:. This is my half of a trade with the very patient and lovely hawaiianstile who made me a beautiful and extremely dangerous sharktooth pendant (and there's really no safe way of storing it, I discovered =D!). Since Keone loves to dive, I knew I wanted to depict his character under water from the start but I just never knew what I wanted to do. As always this started with a bunch of waffling about in photoshop..I got a bit carried away with this piece, but I hope you enjoy it ^_^. I am habitually slow with art trades and hence why I usually don't take them, or if I do, request that the other party finish their half after I finish mine ;D!. The fish are Teardrop Butterflyfish which can be found in the waters around Hawaii.

Dive by *balaa. It is one of the most moving and flowing pieces of artwork. Not only that it inspires, it makes you literally dive in to the world of colors and flow. ( Suggested by AlectorFencer and Featured by KovoWolf )

absolutely gorgeous color and detail, I am beyond impressed. Just curious about the anatomy of the leg/ arm...is it supposed to be part human because a tigers leg doesn't look like that... but either way its still awesome!!!
