Fish in the Sea


Author Comments

It's been awhile since I uploaded something. Been getting over a rough time through some things. As I think any true artist should do is create and express what they are feeling, and this sort of pertains to that theory, but also want to reach out to the many who are having troubled times. I hope this picture brings inspiration to those who are looking for something to distract unpleasant thoughts.

Thanks for viewing. :)


this is a good picture, except when it goes under water you can't see the island the girl is fishing on, Now this could be because the water is too murky, in which case you could still see part of the island, or an actual mistake. And yes, I I haven't uploaded any of my art yet, I am the kind of user who constructively critiques other artists since I can't upload my art. Either way, you have great potential Zigan

Zigan responds:

Thanks for the constructive critique. Although it is a boy just with long hair, I kind of drew this in visual reference to a friend back in 2011. I have gotten a few remarks about the island not being able to be seen in the water, quite the mistake on my part haha. Although at times I'd like to think the island is perhaps just a small chunk floating in the water and not stationary in one place as he drifts among the sea looking for another one to catch. Anyway, I would look forward to viewing some of your art if you can upload it someplace. Thanks again! :)


i looked at this picture as i was listening to shiki no uta, from samurai champloo. it seems to match it well, but it's very lovely anyway. you can realy see the fealing in this picture.


I wish i have the same perfect words to say how i like this draw and the concept
Just amazing!

Dark and beautiful

I love the rays of light how they're going through the holes in clouds, I have warm feelings from them. You really played with light, the person is quite well lightened and I just devour details in dark clouds, it's so overwhelming!
Dark and gloomy atmosphere breathes from this pic, absolutely brilliant work with emotions given to it.
However I have one pretty small rebuke: text in the picture is disruptive a little bit, I think you shouldn't put it directly to the pic, but maybe to your description or sth. But it's still undoubtedly beautiful...
I wish I could rate it 999/10, but I can't :( :D

Zigan responds:

Thanks for the kind words! I was also a little skpetical about the text, but if i do get more requests for prints asking for just the original piece, I have the original PSD. Thanks again for the 10 :)
