Deep Sea by Khatos Deep Sea by Khatos

first time I tried to create a photoshop only artwork that is more realistic than in comic style. was a lot of fun, I love to use different light/shadows and create bioluminescent effects. :)
btw: I absolutely love deep sea creatures. this one doesn't exist in this way, there's an animal called 'gulper eel' that I remembered when I created this artwork.
hope you enjoy it.

I agree, I also want to swim with them, but I think it would be to deep to swim without a submarine or something. what a pity *lol*

the pressure would kill us, but hypothetically, it would be excellent!

This is so wonderful! I love it to pieces! Deep sea creatures are so awesome. You definitely captured their strange morphology and mystery <3 The bioluminesence is striking! So smooth and delicate. Gorgeous work, really!

D: My tablet is dead too. I had my for 7 years. ;; Sad days. But Fantastic work on the lighting! Defiantly love the extra space up top you gave it. Makes it easier to concentrate on the main image below and really does give it a very deep sea quality. The animals down there are freaky but your gulper eel/shark hybrid is amazing. <3 Good job with your realism attempt.
