Jewel by adlovett Jewel by adlovett
Did this within the past couple days. It was an exercise to get lighting and other painting techniques down... and I wanted to use my favorite color scheme ^_^

Painted in Photoshop, no references used (except for the little fish eggs you can barely see)
thanks for viewing!

Don't be ashamed of references! I know people will rag on those who use references, but honestly, no great artist has ever gone completely without them! Your work is definitely still improving, even though it already impressed me before!

Keep up your amazing work! (AND KEEP USING REFERENCES! NO MATTER HOW MANY NUBLETS SAY IT MEANS YOU DON'T HAVE SKILL! Art is a perpetual learning process, and you can't learn without outside help!)

I love the softly glowing colours, and the gently playful mood of this picture. Looks to me as an equvalent of sunny, happy day deep underwater :)
