What lies beyond the border

By Sythgara
Ancient gods perhaps? A new world, or knowledge long lost? Are they worth the leap?

This marks the first step for me off the land of Nysera as far as worldbuilding goes. Something got into me that I had to draw something on a large scale, mysterious and intimidating, and ocean seemed to fit the bill.

Critters belong to me

I like how the two smaller creatures gave it a better sense of scale.

I kind of hope that little dude doesn't swim to close.

He should be smart enough not to. Let's hope

I love how the blurriness of the giant creature in the background adds to the sense of depth.

Underwater stuff spooks me, but I love a good spook. This is amazing. I love the scale of everything.

I hate dark underwater especially when there's giant sea creatures D: terrifies me to death ;~;

We're gonna need to build a huge wall for this, and the sea monsters are going to pay for it.

DaHAAAAAANG this is cool! I love the perspective and how BIG the creature ahead seems. Plus distance blur. That's a really cool thing that I have yet to figure out.
Oh and under water.
Anyway! XD
This is super cool!

Very intimidating! Love the vibe this gives off and the sheer size of your creature. Definitely don't want to run into it while swimming xD
