Peerou knew that it is much easier to hunt in a team but there was nobody of his group arround at the moment and he was hungry. That was the time for a new and interesting friendship...


:) Played around with PS again.
The water did not turn out completely like I would have wished or immagined it but it is still nice.
CoLoRfUlzzz

Just a lil info for the species there:

Saillfish
Not to be mistaken for the standard marlin (they don't have that big pretty fin on the back). The Sailfish is the fastest fish of all, they reach 109 km/h.

Dark Blue Ocean Dragon
They can swim pretty fast and also fly with their wings. Most of the other carnivores of the sea attack their prey from underneath while this Dragon prefers to hunt fish more like a bird from above. They jump out of the water fly a few meters and launch into a shoal then.
The females look like the male ones just without the white and orange face markings and the females are a little bit bigger also.

I have no clue how many weeks this thing is laying around in my hard drive already and how long it did take me to finish it.
... yeah, just lots of layers. :XD:

wow, ein klasse Werk. Schöne Idee, wie sich beide doch irgendwie recht ähnlich sehen ;) Und dann der verdutzte ängstliche Blick des Fisches. Ein schönes Werk!

*huh* I have no clue really, must have been something over hundred. I had to merge a few to be able to keep working on it at the end because my computer was not able to handle it with all the single layers.

I really like how this came out Suzi! I don't think I've seen an ichthyosaur dragon before. The colors are so vibrant and the action is well conveyed. Your work keeps getting better all the time!

I love how they have such similar color schemes/patterns! At first glance [as a thumbnail] it almost seemed like tow fish at first XD


The dragon's design is great too, it reminds me of a pterodactyl! ^^

I thought it would be cool to make him that way, that happens in nature too, there are animals on different continents which look similar although they have nothing to do with each other and just live in the same environment. That's evolution. :D

Vorne hätte man eine harte Wasserkante, wie in einem Aquarium sichtbar, machen können. Auf das bin ich zu spät erst draufgekommen, habs dann gelassen. :blush:
