Lain With the Kraken by ErikShoemaker Lain With the Kraken by ErikShoemaker
Second part of my underwater series made for Depthcore: Echoes.

I: Not unlike the Waves
II: Lain with the Kraken
III: A Premonition (of the Succubus)

I wanted to scrap this several times during the process, but at the end of the day I'm satisfied with the final result after all. (:

Original model stock and first part of the series below:

Another very fantastic work :love:
Dieses Bild ist zwar von den Farben und der Situation nicht so daramatisch und spannend, dafür hat es wahnsinnig realistische und starke Momente. Wieder fasziniert mich hier ihr Blick. Sie scheint richtig gehend wütend zu sein, weil man sie beobachtet. Ihre Haare wirken in dem helleren blau nicht so gut, dafür ist er jetzt sehr viel faszinierender dadurch, dass sein Gesicht teilweise im Schatten liegt und man aber gleichzeitig einen friedlichen Ausdruck auf seinem Gesicht erkennen kann. Sein rechtes Auge ist wirklich genial belichtet..
Auch die Saugnäpfe sind ein wirklich gutes Element. Sehr realistische Spiegelungen hier!

Auch hier bedanke ich mich noch mal artig. Um ehrlich zu sein, war das Licht auf seinem Auge glaube ich sowas wie ein Glücksfall.. :D Ich war auch sehr begeistert davon wie mir dieser Effekt gelungen ist. :D Manchmal muss man einfach mal ein bisschen rumprobieren.

keine Ahnung, ich glaube ich mag den dritten Teil am meisten. Ist düsterer und ein bisschen klaustophobisch und ich bin mit dem Seegras sehr zufrieden. :D
