Hi Nick, like the colour of the figure and action of the figure! Are very very great!..Keep it up! Cheers!


I really like how the blue mermaid twisted her torso, great sense of action there!


Great colours, character design, lighting, composition and marine atmosphere! The mermaids look wonderful!! I also really like your bubbles! Keep up the good work!!


Hi Nick,

It is great to see some new work from you.
It is wonderful. I love the flow of the mermaids.




Beautiful work as always, Nick, I love the mermaids


This is SO dynamic - I love the great big sploosh of water running diagonally across the image, the hard edges on the figures and the soft rendering of the skin; makes me want to dive in and get wet!

Absolutely brilliant work, mate,


And a little naughty I think… Fun colors! I also really like the water effect. I’d like to see less line in the figures, but just my opinion

Nice work!


good job!it’s so cool,i really like it ,the colors is very beautiful!


As always you make complex forms and light look effortless Nick - this is beautiful work. The plunge you’ve captured, that moment of action, is perfectly realised. Brilliant!



Stunning piece. I love the way the figures are composed and the sea effects/bed are superb. Nice to see new stuff from you. :slight_smile:
