Floating Fish by Minnhagen Floating Fish by Minnhagen
This was made for CGSociety's "Strange Behaviour" Challenge. The story goes: In vertical oriental cities, gas-filled floating fish are commonly used for cargo transport. Being very docile creatures, they normally create no fuss. They glide slowly though the crowded markets, letting themselves be steered by their drivers to their docking stations deep within the city. But then once in a while a fish panics in the narrow passages and tries to get away, shaking off the little people climbing all over it and tearing down wooden bridges and market stands. Such behaviour is considered unacceptable and most strange. This painting depicts one such event.

I love everything about this. The colours, and the way they lend to the composition; the idea itself; the details on everything; the way the created world really seems like it could be plausible? Yes. All of it. Very inspiring, I applaud you!

Brilliant idea, so well-rendered, and such great use of composition and perspective. I also like the way you use warmer and brighter colors to draw the eye inward to the rampant flying fish.
