Underpass

A piece focusing on perspective and how water reacts to light. Character was from a comic focusing on small business thwarting big business.

Nice!

Nice...I like your use of space.

it looks great i think its a little depressing

I love the image because it is universal. You mentioned lighting and water's reactions and the perspective, and all of these things are not only technically good but they lend real emotion to the character in the foreground. You want to empathize with her, and the rest of the image makes that easy, right down to the color choices. The best part is that it could be anything: the girl could be sad or desperate, introspective, grieving, peaceful, tormented, reflective, at the end of a journey or at the beginning of one; it could be the present, or an alternate present, a steampunk past, a dystopian future, a utopian future, in any city in the world, real or imagined, and the image doesn't even exclude the possibility of a sci-fi otherworld.

This is what I mean by universal. Your art really speaks to our emotions using all of our visual senses, with a setting and a character, upon which we may imprint any of our own ideas, feelings, and insecurities. It was a successful experiment and you've made a great piece.
