This is a commission for a friend of mine. I am pretty happy with how it came out. Waay too many hours, but finally got the greyscale -> color thing down. It was a lot easier that way. I had a lot of fun with this, except for the scales-- they wanted to fry my brain.
Should I upload the version without the shells? Maybe, if people ask for it.
I would love critiques on this, other than the fact that there is a different light source for the wave than the rest of the picture. (It's intentional, and I know, it bugs me too.)
