Pazamal by Karbo Pazamal by Karbo
A peaceful, cute, and serene scene to lighten a bit the mood of these last days.
It's a view of Pazamal, an heaven aquatic realm and its inhabitants the Revadas, literally sea angels :)

This strange realm is contained in an immense bubble of water. The water is pure as crystal and possesses the remarkable property to convey sounds very well and to be perfectly "breathable". After a few hours of adaptation, one can easily go virtually everywhere, as if flying. What passes for land are masses of a solid rock-like matter drifting slowly and majestically in the liquid immensity, never colliding however as they repulse each others. Delicate structures are carved directly onto their surface. A newcomer to Pazamal can't help but be awed by the strange, exotic beauty of this world and its legendary song. The song of Pazamal is the name of an unique phenomenon occurring from the streaming and collision of conflicting currents. It creates a constant crystalline noise, strikingly delicate and so beautiful it can induce tears to those who hear it. The song of Pazamal become louder the closer one comes to the boundaries of the world, while it's reduced to only a whisper at its center. Pazamal also possesses a very varied fauna, from various species of singing fishes, to more dangerous beasts. The most famous inhabitants are the revadas however, an unique specie of giant aquatic angels with large and majestic fin-like wings.

Wow, this is really good in my opinion, I like how you stuck to one color scheme, and the design of the characters is something i've never seen before. I also especially like your use of depth, some people have trouble capturing that, when I still drew things I couldn't draw depth at all.

The texture of the wings is another thing viewers should take note of, actually not just the wings but all of the textures, another hard thing to capture in my personal opinion but you've done quite well to do so.

Don't feel like this is me being like a movie critic or something, because I can't draw at all anymore, I write. But if my opinions help you out then i'll happily critique more of your stuff.

I really really really like the use of colours for this painting not to mention the fact that they are not mermaids with a fish tail so the originaility of this art would be more than five stars to me.

The different shades of blues are fantastic and I really like your style of drawing not to mention in your creativity in drawing the fishes.The swim suits cool aswell plus the tattoos. For some strange reason this painting reminds me of avatar a bit because of the floating land lol plus the shading of hair is good not too complicated

It's a very beautiful and emotional anime you must see it for yourself, the story is written by Mari Okada, a Japanese anime screenwriter. She is one of the most prolific writers currently working in the anime industry.

I notice mention of dangerous beasts here. What happens when you die in heaven, is your soul just destroyed, and are you erased from existence, which seems harsh, or do yo go to super heaven?!: www.youtube.com/watch?v=ItPDoH…

This is awesome! The story behind this work is perfect and I feel it really enhances the piece. It reminds me of Fishman Island from One Piece and I mean that in a good way.

I wonder what would cause the land masses to repel each other, and how they managed to become large masses in the first place. Wouldn't the repulsion cause them to break apart into smaller and smaller pieces? Or is the repulsion something not within the rock itself, but on the surface of it like some plant or algae?
