underwater by DaliFlores underwater by DaliFlores
The colors always look cooler when i play with the levels on photoshop, but I can't really justify uploading a picture with the colors completely altered. I feel like I'm cheating if I don't upload it with the original colors.

Just a quickish thingie.

mmm... if you mean because the colors look faded and dull.. I think it actually adds to the effect of someone being underwater. I think it looks beautiful, and the peaceful serenity with such a dramatic foreshortened pose makes it seem like she's being pulled down into the water, but is serene about it.

I like it very much :]

I've gotten more faves on this than I expected so I guess the simplicity of the drawing and the dramatic situation speaks to some emotion in the people who have seen it. Thanks for commenting, I always look forward to your insightful comments :)

Like the Octopie picture I had grander things in mind for this, so this is technically and unfinished piece. Perhaps I will finish it some day, I'm not sure, but ill leave this original one up just because its been quite successful.

That's good that you're willing to expand on it, but still leave this version for those who have connected with it. I think that's great. I would like to see where your actual vision was going with this, but I wouldn't want you to take this one down either. :D

All mediums have their tools, there are some things that paints can't do. Conversely, there are things that digital can't do (despite it's best efforts)

Yeah I know but it still feels like cheating if I use all the crazy photoshoppy things to enhance the piece

As long as you don't go overboard and keep your head about you, it's fine. ;]

This is great! I love the atmosphere for this one. And the colours just look nifty.I really can't see much for crits that weren't really intentional.
