Atlantis, 1926 by creepyfish Atlantis, 1926 by creepyfish

I wanted to do an illustration of someone riding a giant axolotl and then somehow it turned into this.
Oh, and before anyone decides to point it out, I'm well aware of the obvious Rapture influence, yeeeeeeppppp.

GOOD very good :la: I feel like it's a better balance of 1990's/30's, because before I felt your BGs were mostly 30's, and lacked the 90's style.

I'm a sucker for Big Daddies / diver suits after Bioshock. Especially when placed in Rapture-esque places :love:

Great work! I love the axolotl's bridle-thing :D

Love the concept. The colors give a murky, mysterious and almost intriguing ambience

hahah, well, mostly for the buildings!
I must add, having the possibility to ride a giant black axolotl would have made Bioshock 20% cooler than it already was in 10 seconds flat!

oh my god, wouldn't it though? *-*
I'm not much of a gamer myself but from my 3rd-party-game-appreciator position I have to say the environment design of bioshock is THE COOLEST THING EVER.

definitely D:

I'm not much of a gamer too, I mean, my relationship with videogames is kind of a monogamy with Darksiders xD but I do love watching my boyfriend play and we both like the same kind of games, So I watched him play Bioshock 1 & 2 (I helped with the machine hacking and with following the plot xD) and CHEEZUS ON A STICK that was one hell of a game D: the environment, the characters, DAT PLOT.

also, I am IN LOVE with the Little Sister-Big Daddy couple.
can you say best couple ever?

BEST COUPLE EVERRRRR!
