Kraken Attack by BenWootten Kraken Attack by BenWootten
I wanted a different view of the classic Kraken attacking a viking ship so I took the camera below the water surface, thankfully we had great visibility that day and got back on the dive boat with most of the shooting crew.

This in an interior for the New Mythical Monsters Revisited released by Paizo Publishing.

Big thanks to Sarah and Andrew for their great art direction.

Interesting colors on the Kraken, the blue shades seem like camouflage, so it blends in with the dark water when someone's trying to spot it from above the water.
