Swear I had this in my favourites years ago, seems like a lot of my old favs/ratings went away. Well, that means I can favourite and rate this top stars all over again!

I love the colours!!!

dyluck (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 5/30/2014 04:56

Wow... it would be interesting to try to add the waving effect from beeing underwater.

I really love this style! It's sorta cartoony, but still doesn't look too much cartoony ^^ 5 small blobs for you ^^;

Hdan (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 11/25/2007 05:28
Very nice colors, the sun in the water in very realist

Kaz21 (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 10/18/2007 20:22

Thats uber cool! Nice colours too...

Alecal (Level 1 Rookie) @ 9/8/2007 12:56
oh my... that is truly amazing!

ScarredShadow (Level 4 Deputy) @ 8/24/2007 21:01
superb i can't believe that I haven't already fav'd this.  It's fav'd now.

Llama (Level 3 Hatchikyu) @ 8/4/2007 13:27
Beautiful work! Atlantida, excellent theme.

Gas 13 (Level 9 Boss) @ 8/3/2007 12:26
I'm honoured, thanks a lot.

nvision (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 8/3/2007 08:18
Man...your ever increasing skills always inspire me!  Excellent composition, colour, and persective in this

Kingy (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 7/31/2007 07:23
Amazing work, love the fish and the lighting.

[Hydra] (Level 1 Gangster) @ 7/30/2007 22:33
I love the colors and lighting..excellent work, and you got my vote.

Gas 13 (Level 9 Boss) @ 7/30/2007 02:26
Never heard of it. Just checked wiki regarding it and really there are some points to call it like that :)

- disturbing hieroglyphs;
- geometry of R’lyeh is abnormal.

Psiweapon (Level 4 Gas Giant) @ 7/29/2007 19:59
Real cool, although it makes me think more of R'Lyeh than of Atlantis.

NekoGirlEli (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/29/2007 11:13
Whoah that is exactly how I imagined Atlantis too. Nice colour and contrast. The design overall makes me wonder if Atlantis really did exist at one time.

silent sniper (Level 1 Depressed) @ 7/28/2007 23:29

beautiful. 5/5

hunted rogue (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 7/28/2007 14:18
wow! I love the detail and the shading in this piece! The contrast between the light blue and the dark color is really awesome!

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 7/27/2007 11:18
Gorgeous Gas! This pic is so clean and has a very refreshing feel. I like the blurry effect on the last fish to the left.

Gas 13 (Level 9 Boss) @ 7/27/2007 06:34
Well, my english is not my native language either and sadly I didn't get your idea even though I was reading it several times. Thanks for trying anyway :)

Btw, it's not an obelisk, at least I supposed it to look like some other hidden civilization with own language (the sign is to show that) and so on... :)

Waphex (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/27/2007 05:30
ok first i thought there was some kind of obelsik ( the engraved stone on the right ) i thought that because of the pointy triangle at the left of the stone. what bothers me is that this engraved stone  is placed right on the horizon ( if i follow the perspectiv lines ) and i think you would improve the dynamism of the composition i these edges would follow the general composition direction wich seems to point the center top of the image. i don't know if i made myself clear (i'm french and my english is far from perfect so be indulgent =p )

Gas 13 (Level 9 Boss) @ 7/27/2007 04:24
Thanks for the comments, guys!

Waphex, please let me know what part do you find symmetrical as I'm really confused. The rays over the stones are senseless, that's true. I just felt it look better this way :) On other hand it could be some reflected lights, right? :)

CoreyStuckey (Level 1 Depressed) @ 7/26/2007 10:31
This peice is very inspiring to me.

Kung-Gi-OH! (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/25/2007 10:54
its such a beautiful representation of Atlantis--only done by pixel! ^__^ very cool!

BlingShyne2 (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/25/2007 08:07
Wow dude, thats wicked looking, great job.

Starchild (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/25/2007 05:44

woah! That's amazing! Congrats! The palette is the best.

dich (Level 4 Murderer) @ 7/25/2007 05:43
Great work! Respect!

rajkosk8 (Level 5 Detective) @ 7/25/2007 04:49
very cool and inspiring gas. i like the light and overall feel.

BlackEye (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 7/25/2007 04:48
hehe yes, gotchi fighters was fun. i guess nowadays, having such a big community of pixelartists, it would be easier to get gotchies drawn and animated

but nobody really knows what a mess the sourcecode was =)

Waphex (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/25/2007 03:54
very nice job ! too bad that the obelisk is too symetrical. it would gain to point the light to improve the composition. a little detail also bothers me, the rays of light over the stones, they seems not coming from the source of light. anyway, great work, the color, the design and the texture are cool !

Gas 13 (Level 9 Boss) @ 7/25/2007 03:38
Thanks for the nice comments :)

ilkke, updated description with steps. As you see, choosing colors was a real problem during the process and I was changing palette like 5 or 6 times. If you have any tips or ideas, please share, would be interesting.

BlackEye, just a day ago miascugh were commenting Osmi recalling sweet Gotchi Fighters times :) Really glad to hear it's inspiring for you.

AdamPlays, agreed, it's always easier to get a good-looking underwater landscape than... than... anything :|

crusader333 (Level 3 Stalker) @ 7/25/2007 03:20
wow that's beautiful... I love the layout of the whole thing

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 7/25/2007 01:56
Maybe you could work on the colors a bit more?

jamon (Level 10 Operative) @ 7/25/2007 00:45
Fantastic work!

BlackEye (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 7/24/2007 23:04
gas, gas, gas... you improved so incredibely fast over the last years since i know you (while i still stand at the beginning and didn't move in any direction >_<).
i absolutely dig the stones - the way you first draw a sketch colored and put layer after layer over it for choosing the colors is cleary the right way.
The image makes me "Yeah! I want to pixel something... blasting... amazing"

Absolute fav'd and whatnot :)

Deltakatachre (Level 1 Depressed) @ 7/24/2007 21:47
that's absolute

Framin (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 7/24/2007 21:16
Very nice :)

David Stoner (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/24/2007 20:34
I foresee two in a row.

AdamPlays (Level 6 SWAT) @ 7/24/2007 20:07
You should stay underwater more often.  You have that type of environment down to a tee. 

BadMrBox (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 7/24/2007 17:55
It's very lovely :)

soda (Level 10 President) @ 7/24/2007 17:17
Another amazing entry by GAS, great job on the whole thing. 

skeddles (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 7/24/2007 17:14
Guh, amazing! Love the lighting.
