with the rest by kelogsloops with the rest by kelogsloops



DANG it's been a while since I've uploaded to dA! :(

A few weeks back, I went to watch Finding Dory with one of my pals, and I distinctly remember marvelling at the scene where the rays are migrating. Dory & Nemo are just there, watching overhead as this swarming flock (fever) of rays swim by. It was something about that scene that was just magical. I remember seeing the concept art behind that scene too, and I'm pretty sure that it's that very scene which inspired this piece. An overwhelming beauty of repetition, I suppose. 

I can't put to words how excited I was to finally watch the film though. I LOVED Finding Dory, and that was yeaars back. So to finally go back to the cinemas and basically relive my childhood, it was so exciting and nostalgic at best. I've always absolute adored Finding Nemo not just because of the storyline, but mainly because of the art. Being able to see the ocean come to life on screen like how Disney/Pixar does it, it's just magical!

I love your art so much, that I've actually tried to copy the way you draw your people when you do your art. Let's just say it's not up to your standards.

Gorgeous painting! Well laid out and impactful, love the repetition of the dots interspersed with the rays. Invokes a feeling of water, flow, more rays...just a general feeling of being overwhelmed in the best way. :)

Seriously?! You can post a comment like that after putting up the work of your own that has a fraction of the effort put into this piece? I could say a lot more but will bite my tongue and am not going to get into any debate here. Other members can look at your work and perhaps may not be as polite as me.

You know that three of your pieces was on Deviant Art's Facebook page a few weeks ago?  I was not surprised that something of yours was up there but three in a row was unexpected. 
Anyway to this fine piece.  I love the ethereal like quality you were going with this and it was just about spot on.  Her nose seems to have put a hole in the fin/wing of the ray.  But I see what you were going for and it works.
Thank you so much as always for sharing such fine art.

Oh wow this is gorgeous, especially with those rays! I love how neat the edges on all of them are. And the girls pinkish lips set off the blue. I really love how she fades into the background, as do some of the rays. The feel of this whole piece is so serene, with underlying energy it seems. This may be my new favorite, especially since I love rays! c:

I never realised how powerful rays were in terms of shape and silhouetting, and the way that they can even be used and laid out to create such soothing patterns.
