This marine drama was done as a commission in late 2007. I tried to create a bit of tension in the scene as most marine themes tend to be peaceful and tranquil.I used commpressed charcoal and soft pastel.

Glad you like it.
Wonderful shading and modeling of the creatures…very nice!
Thanks Cindy, I reworked the modeling of most of the creatures several times over until I finally got something close to what I wanted.
I love your profile pic, is it a penguin? Has a very human looking mood and posture, whatever it is!
Yes it’s a penguin from a poster someone sent me via Skype and I chose to use it as my avatar for the very reasons that you stated. The posture says something like "Stuff it, I’ve had enough and I’m going home! " Which is how I feel when I dont have enough time to produce any art for any extended period due to work, which is something that alot of artist’s have to deal with at some time in thier lives.
Amazing composition and use of color, really soft cool tones, I love it.
Thank’s Abraham! I have to say though that the color’s and tone’s are alot more subtle and soft in the origional. What you see on your monitor is a scan of a glossy taken with a 15 year old camera which I then adjusted slightly in Photoshop to increase the contrast levels. At the time that I drew this I had no computer, no digital camera and no printer/scanner just that 15 year old analogue camera which could be very idosyncratic at time’s.
The original must be something really, really special then!
What a great image to view! Such incredible thrilling detail! Thanks so much for the favourite too, Rekha!
