Day at the Beach by SlimyYetSatisfying Day at the Beach by SlimyYetSatisfying
Just another surreal piece. I was inspired by an artist named Jim Warren. I had never heard of him until my mom bought me a book with his art down at ybor a couple years ago. Very cool stuff he's made.

I guess you could call this fanart.

Refrences

Background - Radiant Return by :iconxentap:

Fish - Goldfish by :iconsenor-polvo:

Girl - :iconchibimizuthing:

Guy - me

Medium - Prismacolor Pencils
Size - 18x24 inches

I love a good critique.

Pieces like these with such fantastic criativity are what brought me over to the DA community in the first place. Jim Warrem is an awesome inspiration to have. The only critique I could give right now is to perhaps paint the nails with a lighter shade than the set skin tone. You also did something that I found great, you actually drew the tip of the nails as realistically possible.

Oh, fanart it may be but not with any kind of derrogative implication that the term is classically known for. Thanks to communities like DA and Concept.Org, Fanart today is on equal terms and acessability with published artwork. In fact, the publication factor may be the only difference between them.
