A Town with a View

Painting done as a gift for my bf. Have been studying the organisms of the deep ocean at uni atm and they have some amazing evolutionary adaptations. :love:
Inspired by a flight to Switzerland before christmas at night and the fog was lit up over the mountains by the lights of the cities below. :)

I'm REALLY afraid of those kind of creatures, like things that are huge like that, especially fish, but I feel like if I saw this in the sky I would love it <3 (also idk if you've seen the game Night in the Woods but this reminds me of the dream sequence fish)

Luckily, most creepy deep sea fish are disappointingly small! :)
I haven't played that game, i'l give it a go one day! :heart:

Wow, I simply cannot stop looking at this masterpiece. I feel like endlessly drawned towards it. Excellent ! I adore how you are able to lay things out at the very beginning, I'm really bad at this. And the lighting, I wish you could teach me how to make such breathtaking atmoshpere with light alone. :D
Really great, cant wait for more !

Omg I'd love to take a class about deep ocean organisms. Nice glow on the moon and the creature, and the sky and landscape are painted very well, beautiful colors!

Is he by any chance Filipino?
Because that looks like a local monster called the bakunawa (it's a giant-ass serpent that swallows the moon, hence lunar eclipses).

Maybe that's what he really is and i just didn't know it haha

Nice art Digital,you can paint in physical paper like this?
kalambo's avatar
I can, but i can only do proper colour with backgrounds in oil paints haha. I really love using traditional media when i have the space/time but my style adapts to different media so it is always slightly different in real paint! :)

Oh my! Wonderful!


Year, it sounds like a very short comment, but that's because it astonishes me !

The concept is well imagined, and you realized it perfectly ! That lighting from the town is awesome and making it a [damn I don't know the technical word for that?] background thing that lights up the foreground making that foreground shadow-like gives a very great sense of field depth ! And all these little light dots and details achieve to make it a perfect painting ! :dummy:
