Into the Deep by thedude255 Into the Deep by thedude255
This is an image I made as part of an art trade with an artist called Anattor. It is not often I get one of my own characters requested in trades, but Anattor wished to see Eclipse wearing her old attire in some kind of peril. The options were against a snake or a giant squid. As you can see I went with the latter option.

This image turned out to be a challenge, but a very enjoyable one as I experimented quite a good deal making this image, as well as correcting details I normally leave out thanks to Anattor's observations. Whilst it is a fantasy image, Anattor was hoping to get a sense of realism and helped me a great deal sending me references to try and get that feel.

I'm very happy with the end result, and I believe Anattor is also pleased with this side of the request which is a joy to know. It's probably one of the best peril images I've made since a very long time, and I hope my first followers who still watch me for the peril works like this one.

Don't worry about Eclipse everyone, she makes it out of this one alive... and actually discovers later that night that Ocotpus is pretty tasty after catching and cooking a big one. ;)

That's what happens when you go exploring without proper gear.

I think you made a good creature choice: nice and fresh, compared to the slightly (if not enitrely) overused constrictor snake.

That's a great image! From Eclipse's pose and expression, to the colour choice and slight distortion effect caused by the water. Good stuff!

Not so good for Eppy!

But yeah, despite her situation this is probably one of the best images I've made just for the lighting and effects. I'll doubt I'll be able to do it again, as with every single image I ever make, (be it a stand alone image like this or a comic panel,) I'm just winging it every time 0_0

I did discover one effect that enhances images a little bit at least, so I'll probably be using that on a regular basis from now on. Don't worry about Eppy, as I said she'll be discovering a new dish on this night and find a new taste for squid.

lol - the benefit of single images - you never really have to explain - just leave it to the viewer's imagination how and why and what happens next! Winging it is the way forward of course! As long as we're trying new stuff we're always making progress - which is the point I guess! Anyway, a great image :)

Indeed. That is what I like to think :)

I take it her dark side came out to get her out of this mess?

I would imagine she can probably handle herself against this creature. She just needs to keep her cool and remember she has super powers ;)
