Darkened depths by MinnaSundberg Darkened depths by MinnaSundberg
~Non-fullviewing eats details. And souls, so beware.~

LOVED drawing this, underwater-scenes are so captivating, yet suprisingly simple to make.

Muhah, first time I've ever gotten an inspiration-spurt from some advertisement on a bus-stop. But it was a real pretty one, light blue with purple tentacles hanging from the top, so color-wise this is a total rip-off. If you dont count the shadings. :3

~30h || Photoshop CS3 || 1500 X 2000px ~

your dragons rule! so whats a dragon doing under water fighting or accompanying an octopus ? lol I love the concept though, very neat. So you draw them by pencil first then edit the details in photoshop?

great pic, loved the poses, the colors make it look almost real, you should add more effects to make the blue creature swim faster :nod:

It's a great pic :D :+fav:

As soon as I laid eyes on this all I could think was "Wow..."

It's so beautiful, and I love how the ink looks. Everything is just beautiful. Incredibly beautiful.

It's a favorite for now, but as soon as I get money, I'm definitely buying me a print.

The red tentacle creature looks quite ferocious with all that dark swirly black stuff. Is that like a squid?

Well anyways. It's awesome.
