The strong lighting in this is what makes it seem so dynamic to me. You definitely get the sense of motion and drama from the rising bubbles.

Twenty minutes. I swear now you've convinced me to actually pick up a tutorial on photoshop and brush creation.

Wow i think the water effect are awesome, i think you should do a drawing of Aspen from the comic book Fathom you would do a stunning job.

ah, the motion in this is beautiful. I'm not sure if it's the bubbles adding to that upward flow or what, but it's really neat. I'd like to see it minus the bubbles just to understand it...

I think the bubbles play a major part of the movement. But here it is without. :) [link]

Yeah, I think without it, the image looks actually a bit unfinished. The bubbles add the motion and the polish!
Reply
:iconhakubaikou:
hakubaikou Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2008
Yeah, and if you make the underlying image too sharp and detailed, then you lose some of the movement, and the bubbles end up looking too busy.

pretty cool.... I think the oversharpness also confuses the line of the bubbles (which are pretty clean/sharp). Thanks for showing me that layer underneath. It was interesting to think about XD (and a good distraction from crazy work day).

LOL! With this new v6 message center, your comment reads as a speech bubble coming from your avatar. And your bunny's expression was perfect for your comment. It was so cute, it made me laugh. ^_^

As for 20 minutes. Really, there's barely any background. He's got no clothes on. The bubbles were a brush I created for a job a couple weeks back, so it's not like I drew each individual bubble. And I didn't have to paint any details because I was lazy and blurred the bejeezus out of him. :-P
