This is a great piece! It took me a while to realize that this was not a picture!
The bubbles are done nicely, and the shadows on them are wonderfully shown!
Also, the seahorse is absolutely beautiful! The colors are perfect, and the shading is breathtaking. Not a single line is out of place, and the proportions are fantastic.

However, I do feel like the background colors are too regular. The black somewhat dominates the little green in the corner, and I think the green should be spread a bit more throughout the piece, just to set off the color of the seahorse. Perhaps a spot of green on the lower left corner?

Either way, this is a fantastic piece! The colors and shading are so realistic, it's stunning!
What do you think?

I like the piece and I know my skills aren't like yours, but this doesn't follow much of the composition rules. I know most of my Gallery doesn't either, so I don't have much room to talk, but your composition here could be better if you followed them. The things I finds wrong are:
A. you don't repeat the shape of the seahorse
B. You draw attention to the corner
C. your main focal point(the seahorse) is in the center of the image.
I would like to see some repetition in the green color and the seahorse's shape. I would also enjoy seeing the seahorse more off to the side, but not drawing attention to the corners. Overall I like your style and I think it's great, but it could be better if you followed the rules. I know my art could be better if I followed the rules.

Wow, this looks really good in the big version, but up close it's unbelievable!! So much detail in such a small animal. It almost looks like it's glowing. This just made the piece that much better :D

Thank you so much! As you can guess, I was looking at the bigger version of the painting and I thought that the sea horse just didn't come through as it should, and decided to do a closeup of it. And it's been my most popular closeup yet :D
