My entry to the Flood the Portal Friday #3; theme: water.
Flood the Portal Friday (or The Friday Flood) is an art forum initiative thats held every first friday of the month, where different artists make a drawing based on that floods theme. Each piece of art should include the same thumbnail so that the art portal is actually "flooded". Theres a more important aspect of the flood, which is that every artist is supposed to review as much of the other flood submission as possible.
Keep an eye on the forum for the next flood (presumably new years eve)

hmmm...

For some reason, I really hate this piece! lol (sorry). It seems almost ...traced, and the coloring technique reminds me of paint by numbers. Maybe it's just the cropping, 'cuz I saw a different version you posted where the bird was offset (to the right) and that was much more visually interesting. It was more balanced in it's unbalanced-ness and made the coloring effects less bothersome somehow.

You're still cool though! ;)

Thanks heaps for you honest review. I deliberately kept this thing square so as to keep the focus on the details/style of the piec piece rather than the overall composition. That other version was my desktop background (and my screen (sadly) isnt square). Not a whole lot I can do with the rest of your review; to each his own I guess.

Almost

It almost looks still motion, right before the explosion of the impact. Good job.

Great work!

I really love the water effect. You did a great job at keeping it simplistic. The only thing that bugs me is that it doesn't seem to have much motion to it. It almost feels like he just ducked his head underwater instead of divebombed into it. Those bubbles are great though.
