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.

This one of my favorite pieces to this day. I like the layers of the city, the concept of the floating fish. It really is brilliant. It's given me a lot of inspiration and I value it to this day.
From an artistic point of view, I really do like the style. The movement is great and the colors here and there make the place look exotic but believable. I strive to make pieces like this.
