I had big plans for this one, but in the end stuck with something fairly simple - sometimes a guy in the water is just meant to be a guy in the water, after all.

All painted with Photoshop CS2, Wacom Intuos -

I love this. I could read into this like other twats with art but like you said, sometimes a guy in water is just that. I wouldn't mind getting a print of this.

Wow you really do amazing work, i like especially the colours and the way you're painting, all the details, seems just soo realistic !!!
- - - But though dont like the boys - they are just too perfect and i can't get off the feeling looking at a member of some boygroup :/ I would really like to see something more.... unperfect, more grown up, maybe less blond, less kind? argh don't know the right describtion... just a MALE, or some sort of bad boy :D because they kind of look like mommy's-dearest-sons :P Though i even don't know why ...
Ok maybe thats just my taste of boys - BUT its still awesome (!) and greater work than i ever will do !
soo FAV <3

Its simplicity made it exquisite enough. He looks like a giant to me but I think that's the catch here.
Great job. I can feel the moonlight on his back as well as the waves on his feet. :D

Everyone know you're amazing and lighting and figures, it's nice to see that yopu can paint beautiful skyies and water also. It's a gorgeous piece as usual-

just wondering though... where his left arm (viewers right) meets the body looks a little weird/ flat or something with that trident like shape. Was that an intentional trident like a hint at neptune or something? Since he is a man of the sea and all...
