View Full Version : Her highness

( Everyone! ^^

I don't know if this piece will be suitable enough for this competition, but .. finally i decided to give it a try :]

I have combined between abstract design and digital painting and mixed them together to create and shape a fantasy world that befit for any type of fantasy creature

i have chosen the goldfish for that kind of environment .. truly , the idea came to me while i were watching some real photos for the goldfish via the internet, i was wondering if i could make it looks like the queen in here own world therefore i have built this environment and designed those type of armor as an outfit for here body.. i kind like them after all :D

It took me around 3 weeks to end this piece in a decent way ... i had to double the image dimension to get enough resolution to work with, therefore the real dimension are 5120 pixels width by 3200 pixels Height

No driven deviantart works at all ... i had to create 3 fantasy brush to get that ornamental look i aiming for.

My fantasy goldfish was digitally painted and those solid abstract shape in front were done in 3D ... the rest are 2d design

photoshop & 3dsmax

I'd appreciate any feedback on my work.

Oh man, this is such a great artwork! i'm surprised i'm the first to give a comment but i wanna tell ya this realli appeals to me. congrats you for finishing this piece of fine work man.

The colors are awesome, being rich without being too distracting against the darker, cooler background. The design and style of the goldfish reminds me of the chocobos from final fantasy 12, which is really nice. The crisp strokes of painting and details really shows your effort too. its very beautiful.

Critques wise, its actually much to my personal preference this time. i think your use of black space is intentional but mayb u still can crop abit on top. & i think mayb you can add some fonts of different variations and put top intergated into green wings part becos i think its a real nice design. If your work is not flattened, mayb u can try rearranging all of the goldfish too? cos who knows, mayb you can come out with something even more dynamic.

Good Luck man, keep on going! :)

Absolutely beautiful! I love the colours and the idea! It took me a while to understand what was going on, but that's probably just because it's 8 am here (to early to be awake :hmm:).
Anyway, I love it!!:love:
