Finally done, after much procrastinating and other nonsense. One of my most ambitious vexel projects, over 10 layers, original size is around 3600 pixels at its widest and I lost count on how many paths I used to create each colour block. It came out pretty satisfactory, and I learned quite a few new things along the way making this. But now, I'm just glad I could finally finish it. :)

As usual, done with the GIMP, over 30+ hours.

Oh wow! What a magical image =)
It has depth, nice lighting effects in the water, and the anatomy of the orcas are spot on. I also like how you added bubbles to imply some movement.
The color and shading is also good.

Incredible detail...such a stunning piece. :heart:

I love all the different poses of the animals, how you've taken into account their distance from the glass by the blur and their size...wow. <3

Truly a piece for you to be proud of! Well worth all your time and effort. :)

This is incredible -- the essence really gives off the magical feeling a child experiences when they go to SeaWorld for the first time, seeing the magnificence of such wonderful animals.
Truly wonderful. :happycry:

I am not too much of a fan for vexel projects, but this one here is exceptional - those orcas are alive:) Great work, so keep it up and convince other "non-believers":)

Masterpiece =D I won't talk about your skills, just focusing your time and effort in 30 hours of concentrated effort is already an achievement. (I always fail on ambitious projects that take up more than 4 hours >_> )

One question though... Why vexel and not vector...?
