I like the analogy of virgin blood on valentines day. The texture and lighting are well define. Simple, yet you displayed it professionally.

There should be an over light and water overlay that blends the sea with the object. I suppose that this is the sea, due to its color(vast blue). It can't be a lake, or a pond. The color does not match up. But if this was the sea. I prefer using a smaller fish as bait, than a worm.
Sorry, sometimes I observed too hard.
But overall, you win me over. Applause:) and thanks for the PM.

Luwano responds:

Thanks for the feedback. Yes, I wanted use a clear blue and have an empty space, so it has to be the sea. You wouldn't use this type of hook either when you go deep sea fishing. I just chose this kind of hook and a fat worm as bait because they worked for my idea.

I don't see the flood as a competitive activity. If I did, I had stopped joining after the first friday flood event. So while I thank you for the compliment, I don't think anybody wins over another. I'm glad you joined in and hope to see you around, should there be another flood.

Thanks for the review!

Poor poor worm...

Luwano responds:

Oh hai XSundowNX! The worm sacrificed itself voluntarily. Feeling better?

Ohhhhh I get it heheheheh.

Luwano responds:

I knew you would ;)

Really loving the texture of that worm!

Luwano responds:

And it loves you too! That's so Valentine's Dayish

... Weirdly well done, Luw! The textures on the worm are superb, and I'm fascinated by the detail where the hook punctures the worm.

I think my only quibble is that I'd add a touch of lighting to the shaded underside, since light gets refracted underwater. Maybe some rimlighting too. Commendable job, old bean!

Luwano responds:

Good point, I didn't consider that. I got to check out how it would look if I just try to add rimlighting as practice on a saved WIP. Thanks for the tip. I also like how the texture came out, especially since it was rather simple to draw it.

Gotta admit, I almost forgot to draw out a proper part where the hook leaves the worm, it was just an erased roundish hole around 20 minutes before the deadline. :P
