You know, this very much reminds me of the last scene in "Crank" :) Where Jason Stetham drops from the skies, bounces off a car and lands face down on the hard, unwelcoming concrete!

PS: Love the water! Great work!

Fluids are such a hard thing to make look natural regardless of if you're using traditional or digital media... And here you've done it perfectly. Overall the piece is stunning, but that water just hooks me!

I thought this was a photo. The water is so realistic! How did you do that? And trhe expression on the guy's face... It makes me think he is about to wake up and find out everything was a weird dream.

WOW, I love this.
The colering is really good, like the orange/green contrast.
And I really love that you used water as subject to paint and you can see the water marks on the painting.
Aldo its oil...
Looks realy 3D like :D
Great job

Like a person below said - this also reminds me of Radiohead's art. The atmosphere, and the fact that this man here looks a bit like Thom Yorke. Also, their video for "No Surprises", which featured a lot of water.

About the piece itself - I am speechless. When I saw it at first, I thought it was a photo, but then I noticed it's a painting. It's really amazing, so realistic, yet a bit abstract. Truly wonderful, your skill is just amazing. Everything on this picture works so well together - the mood, feelings, colors. And the expression of that man. Truly moving.

This reminds me of the musical work of "Radiohead" somehow.

Thrilling work, really; Realism used dramatically is always more powerful than stylization.
