IF - Tales and Legends



Melvin Fishguy had always been content. He had a successful shuttle-fish company, a condo in the exclusive Octo-Pod tower, but love had eluded him. His mother tried to reassure him that he was quite a catch, but parents always say that about their own spawn. The truth was that no matter how successful Melvin was, he was a boring cold fish. That was until today...

I totally loved this weeks topic, tales and legends. I wanted to take on a classic so the obvious choice was the lost city of Atlantis. I envisioned an organic looking city surrounded by the ruins of the ancient Atlantis.

Love this, all the detail and color is astounding. Especially love the Atlantis Morrissette on the side of the ship. But uh, where are the underwater zombies?

Oh, I just love tales of Atlantis, and I love your style, so looks like this is my lucky day!

It amazes me how your color palettes are always so bright, so much fun and yet very sophisticated. Particularly true in this piece. Clever and fun!
