How do you simulate an underwater environment so well....you even got the mud turned up by the amphibian's feet! That's pretty cool.

I don't know. Just draw it.

Truly astounding. Is it not overwhelming the life that once existed on this pebble floating in space we call Earth? The mere thought that such unique, complex creatures once walked on the very ground we walk upon now is breathtaking. Imagine if we could see them with our own eyes, to have them literally standing and breathing within our presence, no longer fossilized bones but actual in-the-flesh creatures who can see and hear us just as well as we can see and hear them...

Very well done. It really looks like an old b&w photograph.

This is wonderful. The values seem to make this thing pop out of the screen in 3D! It's like a monochromatic photograph from the ancient past.

I like the composition in this image. The white on that fish attracts the eye immediately.

Gorgeous work, Andrey!

It looks like I'm there diving in a wetsuit back in the Carboniferous and can actually touch it! :D

Thanks! :)

It's Early Triassic. ;)

Oops! Thanks, my knowledge of early amphibians is not that great but I've seen enough skeletons of them to know how lifelike this is. Looks a lot like Eryops. The fish looks really primitive, which is why I assumed Carboniferous (and also because amphibians were the "top vertebrates" back then).
