A Christmas Coral by priteeboy A Christmas Coral by priteeboy
Tired of the same old, cold, snowy Christmas depictions? that's such a Northern Hemisphere tradition and so for the first time I will salute the season on behalf of my own half of the globe most of which are enjoying balmy Summer weather as always in December :sun: Combine that with the fact I've wanted to do a coral reef scene for ages and this is the result...A Christmas Coral :fish:

I scraped getting my annual Christmas deviation done on time this year, finishing only days before the day itself and was even forced to neglect some commissions along the way to get it finished on time :work: either that or I would have had to put it off for another year! :ohnoes:

Can you believe the corals in this are actually ornaments from my own fish tank? Yep, normally I'm not really into photo-manipulation but it's not like I had enough time to paint or 3D-model all that from scratch anyway, plus I thought since they were my photo's of my corals, it still makes it mine anyway :deviation: The Fish are all rendered out of Vue, most a resource from Cornucopia 3D but that's the only outside stock I used. The Jellyfish, stingray and Starfish-star were made from scratch by me though :) Put in mixed media since I used a bit of everything in terms of programs and methods of creation here :painter:

Happy Holirays! ;)

This reminds me of the show Tanked. I think Bret and Wade of ATM (Acrylic Tank Manufacturing should make a tank like this in the Christmas special.

I think I saw only one episode of that. I don't think it was popular enough to get many plays down here :(

I think something like this in a huge cylinder-shaped tank would look awesome :nod:
A Christmas coral? That's very... original. It's so bright and colourful. I like the fishies =p
