Made for a challenge, this PA count 8 colors respecting the chalenge rules. But I think I must have use only 7 colors, one is superfluous.


Edit : added 2 brightest colors

Really impressive, even if I already know your all work.

This is a wonderful piece. I love shipwrecks and the ocean in general though it scares me to death. Images like this are so wonderful to see.

varuks (Level 1 Rookie) @ 2/12/2010 02:43

dosent look deep.

Such a lovely magic about this scene:) Excellent use of colours.

Blackson (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/17/2009 14:11

looks nice. it's not very 'deep' though, as your title put it :p

blueleds (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/17/2009 06:32

 yea, I thought it Fool at first :)

One crit I will say though, is the rays of light are all from different origins, but somehow I would've expected them to come from the same vanishing point (the sun).

TheInquisitor (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 8/16/2009 10:46

I actually do believe it's quite "Foolish" as some guys put it. The palette selection is very similar I think. It's a fabulous piece of work by its own right though!

AdamF (Level 11 CEO) @ 8/15/2009 18:44

Agreed, Dr. D, I see more of a great original style here rather than one similar to fool's. Obviously nice work, Ergg. Good luck in the contest.

Dr D (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 8/15/2009 18:04

I don't think it's as 'Foolish' as you guys make it out to be, but it's great, nonetheless!

@Manupix: exactly what I thought; it looks very Foolish.  Great color selections and rendering.

Jooble (Level 2 Peon) @ 8/15/2009 14:21

Haha pj is the one place in the woooorld where foolish is a compliment. (all hail his majesty, ahem)


Really like the palette and the streams of light :) The boat looks a teensy bit odd towards the front but other than that, pretty good :)

Ergg (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 8/15/2009 13:10

I have made some edits thanks ;).

About the brihgtness I would have had a lighter color in fact but the palette was ever fixed... But you're right i'm not in the challenge now... ^^

Manupix (Level 11 Godzilla) @ 8/15/2009 12:38

Yikes!!! This looks... foolish! ;-D Fav'd!

I think the cliffs in the bg might fade away, water is not as transparent as air. Besides, as it looks closed on all sides, it's more of a lake than an ocean.

Incredible colors... Maybe it could stand one more lighter tone in the highlights?
