Smile Hello,everyone

Hello,everyone. Thank you for your encouragement and comment. Following is the answer to some friends' question.

As I look at the little guy (The dark set of blobs in the bottom... in the sea.. that s a human right? If not two?) has done serious amount of swimming considering the ships distance and the weather.
But I can understand your reasons of such a placement. It will add so much to the story telling.

My only comment is more like a question actually.
In the areas where the waters darken on the left bottom corner seem to suggest that there is a shore, or that the water is shallow there...
Is it such?

If not... I guess you particularly didn't want to create both a reason for a shade and/or consider a retracting arc-wave on it some where in order for it to be able to be a part of such a wavy night or not... right?
(Because from someone who has such a successful depiction of a monstrous wave, I wouldn't expect a lack of observation)

So that just brings me to ask if you are intending on making the whole sea shake from the battle, Or just that particular mound. (Such as to emphasize the magnificence this supernatural activity? And not to kind of simbolise a storm into a sailors myth)

I am simply enjoying keeping the image open in another window and watching over it.
It's just amazing... and very, very beautiful.

Will definitely want to follow up on this one.

BEST of luck
and PLEASE finish it.


TO:BlackDidThis Till now everything is still uncertain to what you have seen. I'll change most of the things now you've seen for the final image.
The darken areas on the left bottom corner I want to design two extremely fatigued people whose lifeboat has sinked. They've used up their strength on a floating wood and kept screaming towards the little ship which was hard to protect itself distance.

TO:walrus , anticz and QUILLS You are quite right that the focal points of the image are too dispersed now. I'll change it in the future. I think I'll focalize the point on two powers, cloud and sea, facing each other. No one knows why they fight again and again. Actually they are proceeding an epic great war. (Here I humanize them to avoid the single theme that only describes just sinking ships and fleeing people under a storm)

So my feeling is, a war between cloud and sea is arising! Black clouds get lower and lower to cover the sea, and the waves raise higher and higher against the sky. They'll duel in death. Well the Journey happens to meet them. Journey is just beginning and so is the misfortune. Could you agree with me?
The emphasis of the image is the third power metaphorize in it. That is the strong conviction of human beings to surive from the war between two powerful forces. Though the beings look so small and weak, almost have no chance to win. But I believe they'll be the last winner. Or they'll disappear in the sea for ever.... That depends on each watcher's imaging. Hope everyone who see the image may give it a beautiful end.

I have not only gotten my answer by your posted message above...
But now I can definately SEE what you mean.

As "Eye Candy" as it may apear, as "Busy" as it may apear; I have to confess that I loved this image and I am definately enjoying following up on it.

For a big change in my usual nature... I have nothing to criticise
the adition of the boat saved everything... Well no not everything.. unfortunately it saved no one... I meant the image. An adition could have worked only so well.

(And FINISH this!)

Apparently I am dead: LINK
03/03/2008 May I rest in peace
Wait, CG-Talk Shut the link down; try this: WTF?! Weren't you dead?!
