Sunken Treasure by Blattaphile Sunken Treasure by Blattaphile
This is a commission for of their character, Neema. She is a 10 year old half cat half donkey that can manipulate water, thus the bubble over her head to help her swim to the depths of the ocean.

I was only told to draw her "examining something interesting like a treasure chest, some fish or coral... " so I put a little bit of everything in there, had a little bit TOO much fun with it. Some of my favorite things like bubble coral, clown fish, table coral, manta rays and even a little school of fish (about 100 of them @_@) in the background. I tend to go a little overboard with things I really enjoy, thus all the bubbles cos bubbles are SO fun! :D

The lighting in this makes me happily squeal like a small child and bounce around clapping my hands.

On a slightly related note, ever thought of illustrating children's books as a living?

You should make up a portfolio and start sending it... wherever you send that sort of thing. Your skill level is easily high enough.

I love your style, I forget if you've gotten a DD before, it's somewhere on my brain.
I hope I don't get a tumor.

Simply an image full of life! Awesome backgorund full of details that give,as I said before,a lot of life to the image.The sea surface look like a real ceiling,but without being solid, giving a good feeling of undersea environment.The treasure chest and the foreground corals.the sading of the character is good but I'd rather prefered to see all the image under a blue mask,it would have given a better underwater feeling.

A deserved comment for a deserved +Fav!

Hahahaha, the little white-yellow fish on the left looks like as if it ponders to eat her bracelet.

I love all those details there: whereever you look, there's something happening and yet the composition still looks fluidly. :)
