As awesome as the crab is, I can't help but agree with everyone else. That water is simply jaw-dropping. I love how you captured the volume of the waves, as it really looks almost 3-dimensional. Great job! :3

Taste the wrath of his overpriced Krabby Patties!

(I love the celestial bodies inside the Emissaries. Very cool)

This is totally excellent, Sam- one of my absolute favorites from you- just something about the feel of it is just right! :)
