Hey Crew

Heres a demo piece from a new projet i'm working on.

Utlimately I want to push my photoshop skills to the max and incoporate a full underwater sinking ship scene - think barrels, nets, ropes, wood and sailors all heading down to Davy Jones Locker

Something different!

Cheers

It certainly is different. I just wouldn't put it on a site where there are naval memorials and what not ;)

All you need now is a few oceanics in the frame having a little nibble. Great idea Cal, even if it is a little "dark".

Nice idea. Would be complemented better by more moody lighting (i.e. beams of light) which would also give the image depth.

Thanks guys!

Stew - I played around with a few sharks but couldnt find anything that fits , But yeah, that could be awesome.

Alex- I'm working on that now, just rendering the lighting using lens flares and radial blurs in overlay / screen blending modes. getting some cool results but nothing realistic yet.

What this image really needs - above anything else mentioned so far - is something to identify the copyright owner/creator. Once separated from this thread (and I have a copy on my PC to check if metadata existed but has now been deleted) the image becomes an Orphan Work that anyone who finds it could use it for whatever purpose they see fit, including misrepresentation or promoting a cause you do not share or agree with. And the subject is, in my view, absolutely ripe for misrepresentation.

It's not law to use an Orphan here in the UK yet, but our parliament will vote on it soon. If you want to know why this is such a bad thing in detail read the Orphan Works thread that is on Wetpixel.

Very cool Cal - and I agree that the photo could be augmented quite well. It's a bit spooky and a sensitive subject - but what isn't these days.

This is very cool Cal.
I always like art that makes a viewer feel something. A lot of people have the fear of drowning, so this piece is certainly going to make a lot of people feel something!

It also reminds me of the video Ric Frazier did for Diesel jeans, the jean pool.

I think it is great! On the same line as Abigail, I think controversial art ideas are positive for the artist (just remember things like Doubilet´s nudi shoot). I would make sure that with the add ons (barrels etc...) it doesn´t get a hint of humour, as it would ruin the shoot´s dark impact IMHO
