Migration by juliedillon Migration by juliedillon
I'm trying to get some newer portfolio pieces together utilizing some feedback I got from the conceptart.org portfolio review a few weeks ago. The main comments I recieved were to watch my value patterns and overall composition. Thankfully, I had recently gotten it in my head that I needed to draw a huge migrating swarm of eels, so that seemed like a good subject to practice with. Unfortunately this isn't necessarily the best solution to the compositional/value pattern problems (the values are still a little spotty), but it was a lot of fun to paint. I like having something like this to render away at during downtimes. :)

Faved a bunch of your stuff, will probably fave more. Just wanted to say it's gorgeous, visually stunning, boldly colorful, and I love how just about each one tells a piece of a story and hints at more, such as the one above. Love it.

That is an awesome piece of art. I hope that I get to that point eventually with my art work. I am still a pretty long ways off, but it is always nice to browse Deviantart for inspirational pieces of art.

Love the concept, and great sense of scale. The rays of light really help to add to the scale, the same way light travels through clouds.
