Fool Moon by chriskoehler Fool Moon by chriskoehler
I thought this idea was fun and cheeky. It's a small one, 10" x 8". Let me know what you think!

Haha, that's pretty damned epic. I love it. The idea of some giant space piranha just makes me laugh. I would NOT want to be the people on that craft. You're very talented - a wonderful work I would have thought to be a photo manipulation from the thumbnail. Great, hilarious concept.

This is one of those times that I really wish someone else's idea had been mine! Its terrific! If I was to add anything to it it would be stars in the background, but if you left them out on purpose I understand why.

This one should've been given more prestige. With a larger size the detail in the moon/lure could've been much more, the blend of space into the Angler's body could've been larger, and the spaceship could've been farther away, with a much small size compared to the Angler.

But besides that, my favorite one you've made.

yeah, i agree with you. when i first started this piece, it was just a fun little throwaway piece. more of a little joke than a finished piece. i ended up liking it a bit more than that so i took it to a cleaner finish. i with it was a bit bigger with more detail though. thanks for checking it out!

The dark colours, the hugeness of the anglerfish. It makes for a very scary athmosphere.

Really clever idea and you exectuted it excellently. The perspective on the space shuttle and the texture of the angler fish's skin are particular brilliant. The only thing that isn't quite right for me is the eye of the angler fish, it doesn't look wet enough, if that makes any sense. Regardless, this is fantastic, and the title is amusing as well. :)

:iconchriskoehler:
chriskoehler Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2008
thanks! yeah, i agree about the eye. on an interesting note, this piece is covered in varnish so the whole thing looks wet in person. but yeah, it could use a little more contrast and shine
