~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Please don't ignore, just because it's not Sonic related art work..

I'm very proud at how this came out! I didn't think I could pull it off. :la:
The bubbles could be more realistic but I have no clue who to do that..x.x There was only one decent tutorial but they didn't look like real bubbles to me.. oh well.^^;
The things I like the most, is the coral, the ruin and the sun shining in from the top of the water.^-^

I hope you all like it.

Sorry for the watermark.. my bgs have been used as stock pics, without my permission, to make other pictures, twice now(that I know of)..So I have no choice..

Wow! I was looking for references of how to draw some underwater scenes, and I came across this one. It's no wonder people would love to use it as a stock pic! It's so beautifully done. ^_^ I particularly love the way you did the sunlight, and the rays coming through the water...

Do you do any sort of tutorials for your backgrounds, or certain elements? (Like the algae/moss hanging from those rocks? Absolutely incredible!)

thanks you^-^

no I have no tutorials, sorry. But everything I do I've learned from either tutorials or by just looking at references and trying to copy it. And I've also used special brushes.

^_^ You're welcome!

Ah, the beauty of digital art: we can use brushes. XD In any case, it looks amazing, and I believe that tutorials are only as useful as the artist takes them to be. I can tell you must have practiced, and it's definitely paid off! Keep up the amazing work!

The key is practice. And also knowledge obtained by observation.

isora683 Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2012
So true... I'm always amazed at what practice can do, even for arists who are already so talented. ^_^ And of course, in addition to the observations (which is so valuable in and of itself; most beauty and truth can be found in the world around), the PASSION to keep going! :D

:iconcoraleana:
Coraleana Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2012
yes that is definately true!
I for one cannot draw (or draw well) without passion.^-^
It seems that if I am really passionate about a picture it looks way better than some I did that I didn't have such a connection with.^^; And it seems that I can accomplish a lot more as well that way.

:iconisora683:
isora683 Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2012
So true... That's why I'm not planning to pursue art as much more than a hobby... ^^; I just don't have the same passion for it!

You are so right! And oftentimes, my work is not only better, but I actually complete the thing, not to mention I feel that it takes so much less time... XD

Even I can tell when I put my heart into it... No matter how simple it may seem.

So yes, that's very true... Perhaps one of the reasons I'm more apt at writing... :D But the problem comes when I can SEE the idea in my head, which only makes me want to draw it out... XD

I understand what you mean.^^
I know! I might not be a writer but when I listen to music for example, this whole sort of movie pops into my head! It's hard to pic a still frame from it and draw that, I'd rather just make an animated movie out of it. XD; but sadly I lack the skill and technology for that. Gets frustrating when it doens't want to leave you alone.^^;
