Poor fishies!

I do love this though. The dark colors followed up with a green after glow is just captivating. :D

Aside from my irrational fear of Jellyfish,

I simply love how they're the light sources for the piece <3

Amazing idea to give light effects to the picture with jellyfishes! Could use some stronger light at the jellyfishes though but it looks unique and awesome :)

Tak! I wasn't sure about making them too bright because they have 'eyes' matching her tattoos, and the bright light wouldn't let you see them!

Great job! you might want to work on blending your colors a bit more smoothly and making your highlites pop more.

Thanks! I was tried some more opaque highlights, but I wasn't happy with the way it looked. I can see what you mean about the colours, especially in the lower half :/ (I submitted it on the last day of the contest so I tried to wrap it up as fast and best as I could)

Thanks for the feedback :)

Holy shit, this looks amazing! I absolutely love what you did with the light and the contrasts. (also I've a bit of a weakness for fictional jellyfish haha) Also I think the jellies carrying the fish is quite a neat concept. Overall this is a stunner.
