Sea serpent by AxelMedellin Sea serpent by AxelMedellin
Mmm... just as it says.

Not so impressive as I had envisioned it, but I'll give it another shot later...

Oooh, I like the little shadowed figure you added on the rocks. Xp Kinda hard to notice him, though.

Fight on, brave knight! Let your sword cut 'twixt the waves of uncertainty!

Me recuerda una pintura de john howe sobre el encuentro de uno de los personajes del silmarillion (ese que explica la mitologia del sr de los anillos) con el dios Ulmo del oceano. la composicion es mas horizontal pero basicamente es la misma idea.

No la he visto, más bien se me ocurrió por una pintura de Frazzetta. Infinitamente superior la suya, por supuesto. Suerte.

Hmmm, if you wanted it to look more imposing/impressive I'd have drawn the serpent from a viewpoint right behind that guy's head. From that angle the creature could take up all of the picture, thus seeming more impressive (that and the waves could be minimalized. The sea serpent looks awesome though, especially with those wing-fins; they make it seem all the larger. And either that guy down there summoned the serpent, or else he's a goner.

Hmmm ... I think I'm actually gonna critique you on this one. Not the best water I've seen you do, it looks like you were rushing to finish, or maybe just unmotavated about the piece in general. The serpent looks great, but I think you had envisioned him humongous and menacing, which is why you're not happy. He does look rather small but it has nothing to do with its size on the page. I think if you added a point of reference, you would be happier with the result. Something that you can compare in size, like a human standing on the rocks or something like that.

These Nautilus-themed pictures really are your main field of expertiese! :clap:

Hm, one thing I could think of to make it more impressivee.. Perhaps redo the waves in the back, make them a little bigger, and while you're at it you could also "zoom out" a little, so we would see a bit more of the sea and waves around it, making them more mischievous. And I also don't get the things in the foreground. Is that a piece of the shore?

Hmm, hope that doesnt sound too negative now, I got a little carried away ^^; It already is an impressive pic! :thumbsup:

I really like its head, it reminds me of a whale's mixed with...I'm not sure, but I dig it! The fins on its neck are also really incredible, lots of motion in them.
