Obscure sea creature

Edit: For some reason this image got sized-down quite a bit. You can see a larger version of it here in my blog.

I don't know... it's a creature so I'm posting. It's meant to be an aquatic scene... I obviously didn't reference said environment so the thing is a bit heavy in it's level adjustments and such (I feel it's much too dark), but I put enough time into it that I didn't want this to go entirely unseen. Feedback definitely welcome. Thanks!

My monitor's so screwed up that I don't really know what this is supposed to look like, but I pulled it into PS and at least adjusted the levels so that I can see it. I dunno what I'm looking at, but it's seeming pretty fucking cool to me. It's evoking BeksiƱski to my eyes, and that -- of course -- can only be goodness. I'm not quite getting the underwater feeling, myself, but I'm definitely digging the atmosphere. I will say this (and realize that my monitor cripples my ability to really see a lot of stuff properly, so... you know... grain of salt): It seems like the left and right halves are two separate paintings, and they are battling each other for attention, instead of existing as a harmonious single image. So... for whatever that's worth. :D Cheers!

It looks fantastic on my monitor (mac)
I really love this... so artistic... like fine art rather than concept art. The composition has a great flow.
I think it's perfectly "dark" but that might just be my display. who knows what other users are seeing.
it's always a battle when doing something dark since every display is different.

Don't know what resolution you made this, but a large framed Giclee print would be epic.
I'd buy!

feedback----> I'd just tell you it looks fantastic! the composition is well balanced both in terms of detals, colour and lighting... also well rendered. the focal point is great!.

Well done.

(ps. when you said you put enough time into it... like how many hours?)

I really like your image. I think the darkness actually works really well. My eye is drawn to the creature because of the contrast between its lightness and the darkness of the background. Then my eye gently wanders to the 'vortex' or opening to my right and back again. The creature is great too, I'm seeing some kind of deep sea entity but could quite easily be a cosmic creature of open space too!

Holy COW what an awesome response! Huge thanks to everyone! I'd say that made my day, but it's 2am so we'll go with made my night. Zounds!

William, huge thanks as usual. I agree I need to tie in the entire piece before I call it final. I also need to flesh out some details and make some more sense of the right portion... or something.

robb, bobbykro ...really, really got me grinnin' now. Res I can't really remember. I'll check when I get some time tomorrow. It's not really huge, but it's probably 2K tall or thereabouts.

Luca, I'd say somewhere around 5 or 6 hours. It went pretty fast. Thank you. :)

Colin, thanks so much for pointing out the strengths. That's excellent when the rare happens: the viewer views as I'd hoped. :)

Since the image scaled way down here for some odd reason, you can go to my blog if you like to see a much larger version. http://thefeeb.blogspot.com/2009/11/here-are-2-new-pieces.html

Thanks again all. :)
