I'm honestly certain I would straight up die if I leaned over and saw this staring up at me. This has such a great air of dread to it!

I think this is actually one of your best pieces! Stunning anatomy, eerie lighting and color scheme, and it looks like you both started with a big image and spent a lot of time on little details (two things I need to work on!). A great overall mood!

This is such an interesting and amazing picture! I love how you have shown where the edge of the water is on the face. Plus the lifelessness of the eyes.. they seem to be staring into my soul. I don't think I've seen a picture quite like this on here so it's really interesting to see.

Hi, I added this to my faves as its a brilliantly done piece. I love the fact it has an eerie-ness about it while also having a calm deathly stillness. Very dark and expertly drawn.

i love this piece. its very ominous in its own right, is it a bloated corpse amidst its own decomposition? is it  some sort of 'deistic' being rising from the depths? is it both? i love it. the eyes are dead and alive, yet they hold so much 'volume' and character, if that makes sense. the colour pallet *which is amazing by the way* gestures at death and the cold, but theres something so 'alive' about it, something is alive in there, theres bustling movement somewhere. its wonderfully conflicting. i don't know... i love it, everything about it, the dimly radiant lake to the subtle way you finely use the cross hatching technique on the face's highlights, its creepy, its beautiful, its somber, i just love it. you should be immensely proud of your work, its brilliant. really, keep up the good work. looking forward to seeing more ^^
