A Christmas Coral by Chromattix A Christmas Coral by Chromattix
Tired of the same old, cold, snowy Christmas depictions? that's such a Northern Hemisphere tradition and so for the first time I will salute the season on behalf of my own half of the globe most of which are enjoying balmy Summer weather as always in December :sun: Combine that with the fact I've wanted to do a coral reef scene for ages and this is the result...A Christmas Coral :fish:

I scraped getting my annual Christmas deviation done on time this year, finishing only days before the day itself and was even forced to neglect some commissions along the way to get it finished on time :work: either that or I would have had to put it off for another year! :ohnoes:

Can you believe the corals in this are actually ornaments from my own fish tank? Yep, normally I'm not really into photo-manipulation but it's not like I had enough time to paint or 3D-model all that from scratch anyway, plus I thought since they were my photo's of my corals, it still makes it mine anyway :deviation: The Fish are all rendered out of Vue, most a resource from Cornucopia 3D but that's the only outside stock I used. The Jellyfish, stingray and Starfish-star were made from scratch by me though :) Put in mixed media since I used a bit of everything in terms of programs and methods of creation here :painter:

Happy Holirays! ;)

Sorry for the delay, I need only one big to print. Nothing more. We want to decorate our travel-agency with a nice xmas tree on the window.
Best regards, Janine

Depends on how many have to be printed. I think someone else has a temporary license on this (don't have the time to check for it now)Z that may forbid mass printing or selling.

Can I buy this print?

Chromattix Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah, just click "buy this print" and it'll come up with options for what size you want, what border, what printing surface (paper, canvas, etc) and so-on for you to choose whichever one suits you and your budget best. Once your'e happy then just check out (I can't guarantee it will get there before Christmas though since deviantART does the packaging and shipping, not me)

I would like to use your underwater Christmas print to make Christmas cards. How can I buy this image?

Chromattix Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I already let someone else use this for a greeting card for royalty-based payments... And all I got was a measly ten bucks :X

So I'm afraid it's not for sale, and if it was I wouldn't be charging any less than $300 for it, since I'm tired of getting ripped off :no:

I hope to buy it before Christmas. It's great (especially as I spent lots of Christmases in the Middle East - lots of sand, sea and Sun but no snow!)  Are they sold in packs?

Hmm, I've never bought any cards from dA before, so I'm not sure about the packs. Your best bet is, when you go to the buy this print/card page, is to see if that's an option, otherwise just buy as many as you think you'll need at once. But since I don't distribute them myself, there's not much I can do about the format they sell them in ^^;

I think jellyfish can look pretty, but they gross me out too much to ever want to touch them - stinging or not :fear:

haha I think they look like aliens of the deep, with having no eyes or ears, do they even have a mouth? And they like floating up and down, turning their bodies inside and out, all googy, lol. You have guts to draw them, I can't look at them without going into shock.

This reminds me of the show Tanked. I think Bret and Wade of ATM (Acrylic Tank Manufacturing should make a tank like this in the Christmas special.

I think I saw only one episode of that. I don't think it was popular enough to get many plays down here :(

I think something like this in a huge cylinder-shaped tank would look awesome :nod:
