A detail of the gyarados from one of my deviations.

This needs more "LOVE"! Your Gyarados is amazing, OMG the detail!! First of all, your colouring; it's magic on a stick, dipped in chocolate. I am really into the amount of shading here, how you've used several blue tones to accomplish a nice, realistic contrast, and the highlights are really effective. The fins are just... *dawws* gorgeous! Semi-translucent is VERY hard to do! I can see a bit of pearlescence in there too, as an effect of the aforementioned layering. As an added plus, you've stayed true to the original animation style and enhanced it tenfold. I am becoming a real big fan of your creations. Keep up the fabulous work!
