Started this several weeks ago as an entry to Goblins vs Gnomes challenge. I wasn't attentive enough to read the rules carefully and notice there should be at least one Goblin or Gnome :) On the other hand I could ignore the deadline and use some extra time.

The shadow on the sand impresses me the most.

Excellent work.

The colors, the texture, the idea... I love it all! :D

Awesome! I like the background colors a lot.

Thanks for the comments and crits, guys! Always nice to hear from you again.

@DawnBringer yep, that's how I would interpret it. This is 4th version of background and the one I decided to stick with. Originally I planned to put it underwater but the results looked boring and typical, couldn't do without dithering while I wanted to avoid using it at all. I was looking for something fresh and accidentally found an option.

The sand where it meets the water could be and often is flat. And I don't really see why it's odd, white sand is pretty common. Even on Earth not to mention this could be some random planet, right? :) Anyway I tried texturing it and adding waves but flat one seems to work better. 


@jalonso Osmi 9000+ :)

@Mr.Fahrenheit I don't see this problems so if you could make an edit or something, that would be helpful.

Brilliant! Congratulations, good work :) I love the perspective, this looking-down camera, with the sea behind... Love it! :)

DawnBringer (Level 10 Maniac) @ 12/21/2014 21:41


Yeah, the perspective is a bit odd...but the creature could be tilting its head back, looking up.

The gray sand and brown water is a bit flat and odd. Testing a bit of color...

ohw, awesome

Hey its gas13! Looks good, though i have to say the perspective is weird, we should either see more of the top of its head or see the horizon, I'd say. Some of the tentacles seem out of perspective with the creature as well . Sorry to nit pick, but glad to see you post here again.
