Simple and effective. I can feel the cold wind blowing. This is very nicely done. The haze, the shadows, it all works together. 2x :thumbsup:

Wow, another amazing piece!

I love everything. Looks like you were using the path tool instead of brushes, I like it. (Were you using brushes?)

Excellent work, you never cease to amaze us with your speedpaint skills! I most certainly would love to see coral reef as I'm owner of coral farm business!

Thanks dude :) Yeah it's not real coral unfortunately, it's an illustration for a big window display, i don't think i'll be able to post it here but if your in London any time soon it'll be in one of Harrods windows.

What's it like farming coral??

I have never been to England, that'll be a trip I'm going to take in 5 years or so ;) I'm sure your post in gallery will be breathtaking as well.

Very interesting animal to farm, real moneymaker but a lot of parameters and careful handling are involved with those delicate creatures. They propagate mostly by dividing, which is much better than flowers and tree, heh. Beautiful and rewarding experience at same time.

Hope so, i've tried to be accurate with the types of fish and coral i've been implementing but it's getting to the stage where i can't even look at it anymore lol. Too many hours.

Sounds really interesting, what sort of size do you let them grow to?

:iconnegoxe357:

Don't overwork on coral and fish, just let it flow naturally ;)

We usually have 4-5 size selection- frag (1-2 inches), small (2-3 inches), medium (3-5 inches), and large (5-7 inches), and showpiece (7-12 inches). All depends on speed of growth- soft vs hard corals plus their ability to survive the transportation. Frag is pretty popular, easy to propagate and grow to that size. Usually favorite among frag traders.
