Colors reduced to 32, fixed head and started working of more smooth gradient on body under water.
haven't visited this post long time)
Very well made!
Lol I was talking to a buddy last night about the ocean. Probably my worst fear, getting grabbed by something huge and plunged into 'space'....good work!
Hall of came, here you come. You gotta feel sorry for that boat.
nice scene and well executed
Thanks all for positive!
@CELLS: Yes, i had to sacrifice that to get rid of noise. But this result suits me more than the previous version
@Gecimen: I think, I need more study of course:) This picture I made per pixel, non from processing of antialiasing version. Maybe so.
In any case this is not finished.
Brilliant underwater effect!
Looks much better with the recent changes. Except I think the body looked better before, with higher contrast and more murky waters. Higher contrast between the parts that were close and dark or distant and bright gave a much better sense of scale. Right now, the creature looks smaller than before, and it's harder to appreciate the shape of its body, in my opinion.
Amazing creature design and composition.
My only criticism is that you've used no anti-aliasing in the piece which resulted with the whole scene looking rough even in 1x.
Anyways really good overall.
holy shit this is freaking awesome
This looks absolutely gorgeous. Instantly faved.
@guskooyman: just recently did it :)
@nedink: oh yeah - this one is pretty nice
This is so great. I don't really have much constructive criticism, as it seems pretty much perfect the way it is. The body looks a tad lumpy in the middle though. I think it could be streamlined a bit.
I love this. And it reminds me of one of my favorite monsters on PJ
Just started to change some details. That means the work is still in progress
It's ok CELS, I was thinking the same thing with the head.
@ADrawingMan: I don't think the body is pllowshaded at all. I guess you're seeing that it's brighter in the sides and dark in the middle, but that's an effect from the water. Whatever is close (e.g. the center of the body) is dark, whatever is further away blends in with the water.
@andylittle: I like this piece a lot. I have three things I would change. 1) Make a very clear border between the top of the water's surface and everything that is below water. 2) Tidy up the shading, get rid of all the noise. 3) Change the Leviathan's head. The whole creature is terrifying, except the head. The head just looks weird to me, particularly the way it bulges like... well, a phallus. There, I said it.
I think you could prob'ly reduce the colors; 53 is a lot. The sky in particular could prob'ly be simplified.
Still this is good and I'm voting it in.
The body looks a tad bit pillowshaded.
The perspective of the monster is great and the comparison between the size of the boat and it makes this piece pretty awesome.
