This reminds me of the lake I work at. Its so dark deep down you can't see your own hands! But your character doesn't look scared. :)

I love the composition and line of this one! The body of the sea creature really moves the eye across the page and I like that the surface of the water is very close to the top of the page.

sorry to bother you, but how do you get your water colors to come out so clearly on the computer?

Sorry for the delayed reply.
I scan the watercolour under high resolution and try to adjust the colour in photoshop for best on screen results. (Usually levels, or if colours are lost than toggle Saturation.)

Haha, I suppose I have to apologize for the late response as well (I've been off of DA for quite a while). Thanks so much for the response, it really does help. Though i doubt that I could ever be as good as you to begin with. My art definitely pales by comparison.

The paper gives this picture such a beautiful texture to it. The colors you used are beautiful and fit very nicely togethor. I like the small dark red fish you added and the cresent moon shaped scales of the water dragon. I also love how simple in design and posture the boy is.

I love the simplicity of the figure in this image, and the dark serpent wrapping around him :heart: It's really beautiful. The splatter of the background is brilliant.

it's very nicely done :> it caught my eye the first thing i looked in my messages box. probably what i like about this the most is the contrast between the top and the bottom- how it looks so full, and so dense, and then it gradually diminishes at the bottom. has to be one of my favourites from you so far.
