Title: Undersea Romance (nudity)
Name: Jason Chan
Country: United States
Software: Painter, Photoshop

I actually had this in sketch form in my sketchbook for a while. I've been wanting to paint it for some time now, but i had gotten sidetracked by the Grand Space Opera and school. Now that I'm finally done with the GSO and school hasn't quite started up yet, I had some time to finish it up.

I was playing with some Beauty and the Beast ideas in my sketchbook and it lead me to this image, which is like Beaty and the Beast meets The Little Mermaid.

I hope you guys like it.

Simply stunning. The underwater effect is really, really well done (and kind of discourage me of my own underwater piece i've been working on for a while.. :p). The details are magnificent...

The tail of the mermaid seems a bit short though, but i guess it doesn't really matter, or it's an illusion with the way her fin is spread.. The right arm of the.. "were-octopus" seems also off, where the elbow is positionned etc...

I have seen some of your posts on Concept Artist.org and have been impressed by your talent: especially your treatment of composition. This piece is no different; the movement in the piece is just great. The tentacles of the "man" and the lower body of the women flow into her hair, then the bubbles, and then the school of fish- with the light pulling your eye back to the two figures. The colors are very nice, but more importantly appropiate for the subject matter. Yes, most assurdly deserves 5 stars...:) Very nice!!

Beautiful piece, especially like the depth and depiction of the fish and surface.

Coincidentally, snowed in here in CT and just finished watching Siderman2 with Dr Octipus.

Fine job.

After watching your image for a while I started to gasp for a breath. Really nice underwater feeling you catched here. The only thing I would suggest, and of course its only my humble opinion... the light rays breaking through the water surface are a little bit weak. Maybe you could even enhance the impact of your image if there would be some strong light rays with a fallof so they start to vanish at the middle of the pic.

Good painting, even better idea.


I've seen many monsters but for some reason I've never seen half-man, half-squid. Brilliant idea to move common fantasy theme to underwater. Instant freshness.

superb.
the composition, and character poses are done really well.
i also like very much the color and atmosphere.

the only thing that disturbs me, and i think someone already wrote that,
is the right arm of the squid-man. some how its seems that the length and angle
of the right arm are a bit unaccurate.

but all in all- great job.

Reminds me very much of Boris Vallejo's piece involving a mermaid and merman, pic here. http://fantasy.bratsk.net/cgi/show.cgi?Id=147

But otherwise nice stuff, disregarding arm weirdness.

My only crits would be, The mantupus guy's hair seems placed, rather than floating. Maybe he has some tough styling gel? Plus the right arm, as mentioned.

As said before the mermaid's scales need some work? Looks too much like polka dots rather than scales. Was this intentional, going for something other than scales?

The direction and flow of the painting are fantastic. I'm looking exactly were the focus is.

I love to see fantastical paintings, keep up the Great work.

The colors are breathaking - I am sorry for the fanboy post - but I can't think of anything to critique.

I browsed through your website and I am totally in awe - it's always good to find new inspirations. The idea to have rollovers show the sketch on some of your pieces is awesome.

I am usually very strict with crits, but this is f**king great, man!

only one thing that I can see: the left hand of the octupus man should
maybe fold her skin a bit more since it looks like he's grabbing her real
tight.. Now it's kinda floating in front of her.. :)

Love this piece! :p

Awoogamuffin?
01-25-2005, 11:52 AM
I guess the scene becomes considerably less romantic when she deposits her eggs on a rock somewhere so that he can fertilize them... but maybe they could do that in a loving and romantic way?

Absolutely beautiful. The only thing i can criticize is the hair of the octopus (or octoman :) ) is his hair. I think it is too straight for underwater. It could be as "fluently" as the girl's hair, but truely this is the most outstanding work I've ever seen in 2D. Kepp on Creating man :applause:

mehdianim
01-26-2005, 08:12 PM
Cool painting, On the drawing side though I don't know if anyone mentioned it before but the man's Right Elbow seems awkward. I don't think it's proportionally wrong, maybe just the pose you picked is awckward his arms are symetrical he is like a clamp. Have at least one arm wrapped around her waist would make it a lot more sensuous without crossing the line. Otherwise the flow fo the whole thing is great...good stuff.

Jason Chan, you inspire me to do Fantasy paintings, but at the same time discourage me that I might not get to your level. You should be very busy, demanding top dollar and winning awards all the time! That is is all your other work is to this level.

Enter this in Spectrum, Epilogue.net and anything else that's related!

Have you seen the work of Josephine wall? http://www.courtyardofromance.com
I designed the site. And I really dig most of her work. Some elements of this peice remid me of some of the themes she explores. Love, Sex, Ocean and Fantasy.

Fantastic!

Imriela
02-08-2005, 04:40 PM
Wow. Just...wow. Their complex poses make for a very dynamic, flowing composition (though his right elbow looks a little low, but that might just be the effect of her hair) that keeps the eye moving through the flow of limbs and hair coral, yet always brings the focus back on the lovers. I really like the fact that your little mermaid is the largest splash of warm tones in the whole piece, focusing the eye in on her and giving us a starting place for our mad cycle of drooling over details.
