Lovely concept. A monstrous fish emerging from the ocean at night to clearly stalk you, yet the story and colors compliment the fear/shock with a touch of playfulness. Composition reminds me of a classic movie poster, such as from the 1960's.

I love the composition-The maroon and dark blue/violet with the white is a real neat idea
and the hatching/texture on the fish critter is amazing!

Viperfish :iconiloveitplz:

The textures in this piece are really nice- they add a lot to the overall mood.

If I had to give any critique, it would be that the piece feels a tiny little bit too heavy. The white / magenta section is really empty, and weights the piece towards the upper half. It definitely does a marvelous job in drawing attention to the viperfish, but it's a little bit too simplified compared to everything else. Maybe you could add some subtle texturing?

I love this to itty bitty pieces, though! :heart:

Very impressive. Very good composition. Would you mind revealing what media this is done in? It's labelled traditional media, but I can't tell what was used here.

dietrock Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2013
Yeah sorry, it's kind of a mix.
It's inked in Mangastudio over a pencil sketch, then photoshop for the colors. :)
