Sea of Monsters by hibbary Sea of Monsters by hibbary
Ahh, this is dry enough to scan. 8D My second experimental paint doodle. 9" by 6" I took a little longer on this one (maybe 3 hour) and painted it in two or three layers.

I wanted to paint an ocean in which the mist of the wave crests took the shape of monsters.

My brother and I were talking about it (he said it looked like a comic cover) and we eventually determined that at night, after the ships had passed, the monsters come up out of the ocean waves and discuss philosophical truths with one another. He said it would be the only web comic he'd ever read. :D

this is stunning... great use of movement in the ocean and a sense of longing in the skeletal monster. Very well done!

With your permission, I'd like to write a scene describing what you and your brother talked about... Lately I've been trying random experiments to de-rust my descriptive writing abilities, and this scenario really sounds like a lot of fun. Whaddaya say? :)
