A creation inspirated by the last Hayao Miyazaki's film : Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea.

I hope it please you.

Graindolium (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 7/2/2012 00:37

Qemist (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 10/4/2011 04:29

1ucas (Level 5 Soldier) @ 4/3/2010 06:11

Amazing piece. Also, I'm going to have nightmares because of this.

Semmu (Level 1 Private) @ 8/16/2009 02:49

woow, nice lightning effect and clear!

5/5 + fav! why just 8th?!...

Manjaman (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 7/20/2009 06:07

Congraaatulations !

Ergg (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 7/17/2009 08:03

Obviously Fool is better !! ^^

MrSmiley (Level 1 Thug) @ 7/17/2009 07:08

 Wow!!! i personally like Fool's better, but this is AWESOME!!

philipptr (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 7/12/2009 09:03

I'm happy you're not angry at me for taking the freedom to do an edit on a finished piece.

Also the anatomy here seems already much better than in "the maker" for example ;)

Ergg (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 7/12/2009 03:11

I must thank you for your help because as you have seen I've got a lack in anatomy realisation ^^. And your improve is really no bad. So thanks again.

philipptr (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 7/11/2009 18:45

While the texture and light looks very good, the anatomy cant keep up. I'm not too good at anatomy myself but still I made a small edit to show a few flaws i spotted:

Still its fascinating to see you improve, seems like you take great steps forward :)

Manjaman (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 7/8/2009 17:43

I voted for you dude ^.^ Show them Froggies rock too !

slym (Level 8 Rear Admiral) @ 7/8/2009 08:24

I really don't like the shape of his face. It looks extremely flat. The lighting in the water is good, but on the boat, if that was the only light source the inside of the boat should be darker. 

d-p (Level 11 Psychopath) @ 7/7/2009 12:47

Great light work on this one.

Ergg (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 7/7/2009 08:22

Thanks (et merci pour les francophones ;) !

Errorz (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/7/2009 06:50

J'adore, un gros GG.

mikl3 (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 7/7/2009 02:01

mazagung (Level 1 Thug) @ 7/6/2009 23:19

Great concept bro...

elend (Level 3 Corporate Drone) @ 7/5/2009 10:25

Very nice one. I really like the light in this one

Perkele (Level 4 Murderer) @ 7/5/2009 07:46

Great idea, great work. One more vote for you

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 7/5/2009 04:11

Very pleasing pic. I like the way you merged the water and the hair. My only crit is the bucket on the boat - the perspective feels a little off.

Good work:)

.:Exar-kun:. (Level 1 Depressed) @ 7/5/2009 04:11

 Merci pour le WIP x)

 J'adore ton style. T'as mon vote assuré.  J'tembrasse tres fort Bisoux.

Mis-BUG (Level 9 Bio Mutant) @ 7/5/2009 02:38

This is a really well done scene... I really love the hair expression in the water and the glow around the face...

Ergg (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 7/5/2009 01:22

Thanks guys !!

The B.O.B. > I realy want to improve myself and I'm happy to see that it maybe pay off =).

The B.O.B. (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 7/4/2009 23:34

Wow, I just looked back at your previous works and I must say, you've improved tremendously. I love seeing artists like you, who keep at it. I can see some of your forms are starting to pay off. Keep it up...

DeathodaDay (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 7/4/2009 15:10

It's so beautiful. I really like the details, especially the fish jumping out of the water behind the boat. Got my vote

Froggy_00 (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/4/2009 14:10

GJ. Got my vote up to now.

Celri (Level 4 Ensign) @ 7/4/2009 13:43

That is too cool you've got my vote!

RollerKingdom (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 7/4/2009 12:34

Great Piece,, amazing execution & idea!!

littlesapphire (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 7/4/2009 11:05

Really neat piece, and a lovely idea.  I agree with the others about the lack of contrast, but that's a hard thing to get yourself to do sometimes.  Also, I feel like the water should be more glowy around the glowing face, but then that could be a personal thing.  Otherwise, I think it's really cool!

orenshtiv (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 7/4/2009 10:51

cool,but it's a little wierd...:P

Mathias (Level 6 Garbage) @ 7/4/2009 10:50

Very interesting. And I agree, the lighting here could've been so much moodier, but I think you were afraid to obscure too much in shadow. Too bad. Still looks really nice anyway.

Gas 13 (Level 9 Boss) @ 7/4/2009 10:41

Yep, the boat should be darker, also if we imagine the light source is higher, so it lights the boat inside still the character in the boat should cast a shadow. Anyway I like it for the amount of work you put into, good job.

Ergg (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 7/4/2009 09:58

Mmh I admit that the inside of the boat must be darker... But it would be so hard to change it now.

And yes the film is good. But no as good as those you have quoted because it more a tale for children.

kvetacek (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 7/4/2009 09:17

I really like the glow of the face! :)

skeddles (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 7/4/2009 09:16

Looks scary =o Very nice pixelin' though, especially on the boat. I'd like to point out that if she(?) is the only lightsource, the inside of the boat would be dark.
Was the movie good? As good as spirited away/howl's?
