Dark depths of the Sea by psiipilehto Dark depths of the Sea by psiipilehto
Made a sketch about this like a month ago and I hadn't touched it for a while. It was very unpolished few days ago when I started working on it again. It took me awhile to finish it but I'm very pleased with the result. I'm really glad I finished it now.

Enjoy!

Critique comment as requested ~ 

I agree with AmmoBot-HB about this piece. The particles floating around and the 
contrast on the angler fish is quite interesting.

However, when viewed as a thumbnail, the small fish doesn't read very well. The light
drops off too suddenly from the source, and it doesn't illuminate the smaller purple/pink
fish well. I would also recommend increasing the saturation on the smaller fish as well as 
extending the radius of the light to encompass most if not all of the smaller fish. 

Also, this is a smaller detail, but the way the arc of the angler fish's lightrod thing
is touching the edge of the canvas is distracting to me. I would try to move the angler
fish down just a bit, or change the arc of the lightrod to not touch the edge of the canvas.

Overall, intriguing piece with a nice feeling of tension - just changing a few bits
here and there could make this piece even stronger : )

The atmosphere and lighting on this one is quite beautiful! The feeling of being down in the depths is there and the subtle inclusion of the particles floating in the water which are illuminated by the light adds that realistic feel to it. I think it's a good contrast on the angler fish and the other one that is about to be feasted on being so differently colored. In nature when it gets that deep all fish tend to lose their color as there's no evolutionary need for it and the lack of light plays a role in that as well. The smaller purple fish that's being baited in is inherently an interesting choice because it seems like a fish that got lost from up above and ended up down there. it seems so innocent in its appearance which doesn't match the type of creature that is naturally born down so deep. What I think could improve this and make it all that more compelling is to get a bit more saturation on the purple fish. Even if in this lighting condition it would barely be noticeable I feel it would help add to that feeling of being out of place and the tension between the two. As well the framing of the picture could be played with to better emphasize the points of interest but that can come down to personal taste really

I love the contrast between the massive, cold coloured Angler fish compared to the cute, pink, tiny fish. The contrast between the two creates a wonderful tension and concern for the little fish. Just simple amazing, words fail me :omg:
