Peach: thank you for reference but i think i won't chage a thing now because if i start i would chage half of pic :D ...

nice piece pain, as usual, I like your style. And you even improved it a lot since you submitted it.
the only thing I can complain is the expression of the mermaid (she looks like one of those death metal's singers) and her arm/hand. Take a look at these reference if you haven't already: pic 1, pic 2, pic 3

Such an atmospheric piece, very nice pixeling! All the saturated blue's hurts the eyes, though :/

warhie (Level 1 Depressed) @ 6/30/2008 02:08
This definately gets my vote..

I hope I'll find the time to enter it, I really like the theme.

jamon (Level 10 Operative) @ 6/27/2008 04:11

pain (Level 9 Nidan) @ 6/27/2008 00:43

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 6/26/2008 23:46
You will have to pick only one version for the compo.
Nice work on the corals, btw

CaKsTeR (Level 3 Stalker) @ 6/26/2008 21:20
Looks great! I can almost tell that this will be a winner :)

RoboBOT (Level 7 Captain) @ 6/26/2008 18:38
Much better,  thanks!

pain (Level 9 Nidan) @ 6/26/2008 15:51
fixed colors on creature ... i hope its better :D

RoboBOT (Level 7 Captain) @ 6/26/2008 14:33
pain, I love your work. Excellent job. It really feels underwater. I won't repeat comments about the colors of the creature (I think you got the point ).

pain (Level 9 Nidan) @ 6/26/2008 12:37
i wanted creature to dominate but maby i oversaturated it :D ...

KGladiator (Level 1 Private) @ 6/26/2008 12:15
Wow... detail is stunning! Love how you did the rays of light. The creature does kinda seem to stick out like a sore thumb but maybe you meant to do that. Anyway, 6/5 =)

Opacus (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 6/26/2008 09:45
It looks like a painting, with a squid reaching through the paper.
A nice one also, but probably not as you had intended it :)

CaKsTeR (Level 3 Stalker) @ 6/26/2008 08:56
I love everything, except for the creature. It doesn't look like it's underwater. Maybe make it more faint and give it a blueish tinge like the rest of the picture.

Lovec Upírov (Level 5 Detective) @ 6/26/2008 08:54
5/5 is god work and good picture!

alkaline (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 6/26/2008 08:35
I wish i could spend 5 - 6 hours and come up with something like this. you are good.

zAk (Level 3 Stalker) @ 6/26/2008 08:02
Really great and original - but as Mirre: i would add some sort of AA or just adjust down the brightness of the creature. 5/5

Mirre (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 6/26/2008 07:36
Wow, this is really awsome! I love how you have rendered the underwaterscape. The red arms of that seamonster are a nice touch against the blue, but to mee it's a tad bit too bright a red that you have used. Really liking this though. There are so many interesting details to look at. Great job!

PixEd (Level 1 Depressed) @ 6/26/2008 07:30
ah lovely - I thought all the entries for this week would be green until I saw this

pain (Level 9 Nidan) @ 6/26/2008 05:15
