Gimeor, The Legged One and the Parrot Fish

Gimeor sits on top of a high rocky cliff and contemplates on his lonely life. The birds look yummy though.

Story: The Giant Parrot fish seeks some advice from the Legged One. In this art, I wanted to capture a dreamy fantasy mood, with a hint of mystery by having the Legged One in dark silhouette. Some underwater caustics effect were added to bring in a bit of life and magic. This was my second attempt.

My first attempt below did not look right; I think I overdid the highlights on the Legged One, so much so that it is even brighter than the water's bright areas. The results almost reminds me of those glow-in-the-dark puzzle arts.
