Otter Kingdom by Cacodaemonia Otter Kingdom by Cacodaemonia
EDIT: I'm resubmitting this with some changes that were suggested by William B. Hand on CenceptArt. org. :) I like it better now.

I know, you're expecting "WIP" to be on the end of the title, right? ;) But I think it's done! I don't even know how many hours I've put into this image. Not just painting it, but searching for dozens of reference photos and other people's artwork for inspiration.

With this image, I tried to capture the feel of a recurring dream I used to have. I was floating along in a deep, slow river while otters made their way to an underwater kingdom. I remember feeling like I was a part of the river, or at least a welcome guest.

To those of you who have been following the development of Otter Kingdom and leaving comments and suggestions, THANK YOU!! :heart: In particular, I'd like to thank the lovely gents and ladies at Monkeyslunch Forums, Dacademy, and ConceptArt.org. You guys rock! :hug:

The size you're viewing now is less than 50% of the original image. I may upload that as a print. I will also upload some detail shots, but see if you can find all the little critters hidden in the roots. ;)

Available as a print.

Corel Painter X, Photoshop CS3, 2008-2009.

I like how the otters look like the roots sometimes...and it makes you do a double take.
I hope someday I can draw as well as you!

Oh wow. You've captured that eerie underwater feel perfectly with the green lighting, and the movement of the otters is so beautiful, too. I love all the details, and the algae on the roots.
