Fishing in the City by geckokid Fishing in the City by geckokid
I have had this idea in my head for so long now, finally got motivated to start working on it, took me 2 days to paint all this, based on a photo I took in Hong Kong. I plan to paint a series of this style... they are all in my head... it's like a short story...

I am quite happy about how it has turned out, and it's also the first time ever for me to paint such detailed stuff! Painting the underwater surface is a big challenge as well.

100% photoshop with a few photo references taken by myself. Hope you like it! This resized version doesn't show the detail much, but just FULL VIEW IT thank you!

Thanks `niteangel for the suggestion of the nemos included in the painting otherwise this painting will be killing you with blue colour overdose :P

OMG i got a DD. ._. Thank you very much nighty and everyone for liking this piece! here's the 1600x1200 wallpaper version: [link] and thanks again! :D :heart: sorry if i can't reply to the comments but there are so many! lol

04/11/2006: I have done a little bit of modification to the painting, added a layer of water, tuned the colour etc, and a new frame, hope you'd like it. oh and sorry about the popping up! (if there is one?)

A stunning blue water image with a touch of orange. One of my favorite colors combinations. I hope you enjoy Fishing in the City by =geckokid as much as I do. ( Featured by nighty )

"I was once, loving the Pearl of The East, and now it sunk. May the precious memory melts with life and history."

It never get old to see such amazing art, and the literal truth which the pearl is came from the sea; once it was returned, so the Hong Kong too.
