The Deep by LuxDani The Deep by LuxDani
This is a concept that I've had in my head for years, and just finally I am painting it. Inspired by a photo of an iceberg, and the way it was formed reminded me of a building. And thus, this idea was born. Mermaid and all.

One thing I've learned. NEVER AGAIN will I paint on matte board. Not only does it sort of curl, the paper itself rubs when its wet and its just bad. But I'm out of canvas so I shall have to buy some more.

Icebergs freak the shit out of me. And fascinate me. Funny how that goes so well together.

Any feedback would be hugely appreciated!! :heart:

Ooo I love your concept! I'm glad you decided to paint it and show your wonderful idea! Icebergs are definitely freaky and cool at the same time. I think many things are like that though, especially things in nature that we don't often see or understand much of!

Icebergs kinda give me that creeped out, giddy feeling. So hard to explain! But at the same time they are incredibly fascinating, and photographs of them have such  a haunting effect.

Icebergs are freaky because one sank a certain unsinkable ship, and nobody ever saw it coming. ;D

This is such an incredible picture. There's... really no critique I could ever find for it! The colors, the lighting, the careful attention to composition and flow, it all turned out just beautiful. Your handling of the underwater feeling is aaawesome. Underwater/abovewater pictures are always so hard to capture (especially in tropical settings), but you nailed it. I'm also loving the general design of the iceberg itself... it looks perfectly halfway between "iceberg" and "Mermaidville. Love it!

(what I'M wondering is this: is it a city shaped to look like an iceberg, or an iceberg shaped like a city? :eyes:)

My favorite part of the picture is the mermaid, and how she, despite being so tiny compared to the HULKING iceberg, is the focus of the picture. Our eyes are always drawn to her. A very very beautiful picture, Ko, you did excellent on it!
