"Weiter, ins Verderben.."
4' x 3' oil on canvas

After 1.5 years of painting, and over six years of preparing myself to transform a small sketchbook page into a full-sized oil painting, I am finally glad to call this complete.

The colors are really nice and I like the way the waves are lit up by the sun. The more rough looking style fits the monsters. I like how much the water is drooping from them. I like the design of the monster on the left, its colors are really appealing and the head just looks awesome, and the third eye is cool too. The other monster, though, is a bit simpler and something feels kinda off about the way the water in the spaces between its scales looks. Maybe it's too light. The clouds in the sky are a nice touch. The way their shadows aren't just voids and there's still some light is nice too. Their shadows should be bigger, conidering they're pretty massive and the sun is behind them, although it would probably ruing the aesthetic. The design of the little guy on the boat is pretty cool, and there's actually detail on the inside of said boat. That's awesome! Great job overall, with some flaws, but a great aesthetic and detail.

Thank you sir! This piece definitely taught me a lot. I definitely agree on the shadow and the expected contrast when put against a blazing sun, that was something I had a bit of an inner conflict about- whether to saturate the colors and add more darkness, or to kinda break the rules about how the eyes see and adjust to color in different lighting and have a uniform level of light. I'll definitely be playing around with more nautical and sea-monster themes in the future, so we shall see how that turns out!
