Underwater Encounter by creepyfish Underwater Encounter by creepyfish

So here's the notorious piece that I pulled my first school all-nighter for. I made it until junior year, so that was impressive, but it had to catch up with me sometime!

This is another thing for a children's book story, about a girl who comes across a ghost in a sunken ship while looking for odds and ends to use in her jewelry.

I really liked trying this art nouveau/ Mucha inspired framing, and I definitely want to do more of it!

watercolor and gouache and some digital editing

It's crazy to see how much you've improved since I first started watching you Q___Q I really love this piece, the colors work so well together and composition is gorgeous combined with the art nouveau style + the eel and the nautical elements, means I think this is super cool. Your watercolor skills make me jealous.

But this really is a lovely piece, hopefully worth the all-nighter it took :P
