Myth of the 'Floating Islands', Khalid A. Al-Muharraqi (3D)

Title: Myth of the 'Floating Islands'
Name: Khalid A. Al-Muharraqi
Country: Bahrain
Software: Lightwave 3D, Modo, ZBrush

Hi there,
Again a little time to practice and have some fun..
I would like to share with all of you a concept from the old books with old magical stories that always amazes me (the Whale and the island on it's back) it is simply interesting to question things like.. are the trees trees or are they a form of growth that helps it camouflage!! The whale is old, it lives for hundreds of years these creatures have always been mistaken to be land, this voyager ship makes a discovery...
I have created the models textures and environment in about 8 to 10 days, I hope to here your comments, please feel free to tell me what you think...
Really hope that you enjoy the work

hello khalid,,
when I saw this still, I directly recognize the story, whitch is
when two men stopped at an island to have some rest during their journey,
and after they made some fire to grill fishes,,the sleeping big whale felt the fire and got angry
and start to dive and swim in the ocean,,,
very nice story and very good still keep it up,
5 start from me
