I'm torn on the lightning, but the mood is just wonderfully composed with crisp details! Def a theme vote.

great idea. I wanted seagulls in mine, but they would have been too small to recognize.

Great mood and illustration! I think the lightning should touch dowm much closer to the horizon.

canon's a bit too contrasty. Bizarre how you kept in that strange dark line on the horizon from the external (thats surely a dodgy chop?) Nice idea and composition and superb weather effects. The theme is a bit daft.

When your work/job becomes obsolete, the world can be a very lonely depressing place.
TheShaman TheShaman
It's all a play on words Seel & Tofu. I wanted the cannon to be sad for loosing its job, kinda moody and feeling left all alone in a big bad world. The Lightning is part of also being discharged. I wanted it in your face always a dangerous threat.
TheShaman TheShaman
I hope that's what I've conveyed here... I was hoping not to have to explain this. I'm sure I could work on this one for hours more.. Cheers for the good reception though. Much love.
TheShaman TheShaman
LOL @ badcop!!! BWHAHAHAH Classic!

OK this didn't always look like this, in fact it started as a day scene. But I thought it rather boring: [img]
TheShaman TheShaman
So I made what you see above. Now some people are uncertain about the lighting, thats fine, but IMPO it needs to be there for mood and impact.
TheShaman TheShaman
no lighting: [img]
TheShaman TheShaman
personally it looses all its mood and impact w/o the lighting. So there you have it. Cheers to everyone. Much love & respect.
TheShaman TheShaman
*lightning LOL

I like the day scene just as much...all all of the waves and ripples photoshopped in the storm scene or did u use a different water source?
TheShaman TheShaman
waves and water drops are photoshop and brushes. My only outside source is listed in notes.
captainSMITTY11 captainSMITTY11
ohh gotcha...very cool
TheShaman TheShaman
If it were a chop from before me I wouldn't know Andy. I can just tell ya what I've done, and what I haven't.
TheShaman TheShaman
I'm guessing that's landmass off in the distance, but it could be a chop. I really don't know brother.
TofuTheGreat TofuTheGreat
I got the theme Sean. I was just thinking if the poor cannon had some viagra he'd be happier about discharging his balls. ;)
TofuTheGreat TofuTheGreat
p.s. I like this version over the day version.
TheShaman TheShaman
That was part of the joke Chris. There are multiple meanings here ;)

It's up there with the best of them
