v.good work i like this work
  09 September 2006
Hello, as everyone has said it is a great image, I do have some crits though.

In particular water has a depth index such that the deeper you go into it the less visible the creature would be... basically stuff like the tail which is deeper would be murky and less visible while stuff towards the surface would be clearer. I'm too lazy to go to the front page and check what you rendered with but a simple tweak on the water shader you used might give you the effect you need to make it much more realistic.

Also I saw you posts with the textures and zbrush screens, consider editing your main post and putting those there on the first page so more people see them.

Good job, well deserved front page. Congrats!

this is awesome work man keep it up!
It’s no longer “What’s your major?" that you’ll get asked everyday, but “What do you do for a living?” That is the true question!

Not only are the technical aspects amazing, I just love your taste and the idea. I can't really find anything to critique! The birds are just such an awesome touch. -triple thumbs up-
