    Default Spectacular Entry - Leviathan

    Hi this is my first post on zbCentral, thought i'll share my entry for the Spectacualr challenge.

    leviathan_final.jpg

    Title: Leviathan

    My image depicts a spectacular whale hunting scene. Following the lines of “excites and scares at the same time” I thought a traditional whale hunt would be the perfect topic. It seemed impressive to me that man would risk their lives taking on massive powers of giant whales in extreme weather conditions. With my image I tried to capture a moment of great danger and the bravery of the traditional whalers.

    This image was made using zbrush, max and photoshop.

    I hope you'll like it, comments are most welcome

    Great image but i think your whale anatomy may be off, is the whale not supposed to have upper teeth? and something seems strange about the eye, too bulgy perhaps, and its fins are small triangles, i don't believe that they are like that in reality. it could use some more scratches and maybe barnicles.
    the men in the boat seem to not be integrated with the whale, maybe more water splashing down in the foreground over the top of them. lastly i'd think it might make a stronger image if the whales eye was open and looking at them.

    Muy buena. Creo que un animal tan grande desplazaría más agua y quedaría más espectacular.
