Big Fish In a Small Pool by CBSorgeArtworks Big Fish In a Small Pool by CBSorgeArtworks
I can see the sky but I do not have the means to reach it. My hands are limp and the walls are high. But I don't fit here.

providing your daily dose of giant fish-things <3

I... feel very bad for the poor fish who is too large for his cave. :( I wonder how long he's been sitting there?

I guess that means your illustration was very effective in creating a little world, since it's got me thinking more about the scene. :)

There's different ways to think about it. They'd could easily be stuck in a strange place. But if they're physically adapted to survive in that environment- shallow water and whatever other restrictions there are, hinted at by the lungfish like lobed fins - they should be happy in being in their natural habitat, and yearning to be something their not is an even more tragic scene. Or maybe that's just me BSing :B

Haha, good points. :) It still feels a little sad, though.

Bearded Jedi should drop in right about...now

The golden light is so beautiful. It feels like the summer in these parts, but colder.

This is what happens when you flush a fish down a toilet when its still alive.

This is what happens when you dump your tropical fish into the creek.

Yes, my daily dose has been filled already! I love how you used the colors to add depth, and the texture on the rocks is gorgeous!

This would be a great time for that sticker, "I fish and I vote". :) Excellent lighting induced depth.

Awesome work, and love the little snippet (quote? from what, if you don't mind my asking?). The fish in the background could be a piece all by itself, but adding another fish in the foreground really brings it all together - the hopelessness of being trapped in this little space. An easy favorite. :)

I really dig your work. It's really awesome to watch someone go from one good character at a time, to super cool scenery + multiple characters, well rendered and containing flow, good values and color themes. How old are you now? I know you were in high school the last time I talked to you, so I know your young. I can't imagine where you'll be in 10 years.

I'm embarrased by alot of my old stuff, but that's a good motivator. I'm 21 now, almost done with college.

I have this unreasonable fear of the water (large bodies like the oceans) and the giant monsters within. You have helped to feed my fear, which I find exhilarating. Awesome pic dude. I love the work, and the concept that terrifies me. Do you do giant water monsters often?

Heh, you too? I'm not terrified of sea monsters, per se, but I have a healthy respect for the unknown depths of the oceans... Its crazy to think about what's actually down there. Living, breathing monsters.

Oh man, didn't mean to freak you out! I've done a good number of giant sea serpents and whatnot, I'm simultaneously fascinated and unnerved by them :D
