Poseidon's Steeds by snakeart Poseidon's Steeds by snakeart
Reaching the pinnacle,
the cusp of its life.
Foaming forward,
crashing with might.
A collision of fury,
a fusion of hues.
The swirling greens,
and the explosion of blues.
Carrying minnows, ripping the weeds,
charging the depths are Poseidonís steeds.


--------------------------------

This is an artwork where i broke some of my own boundaries, and damn it's good to have it finished! I'm not new to Illustrator or anything but this is actually my first piece where i've involved the program, which made it a whole new adventure. This image is an abstract resemblence to the poem, it's what i see. What do you see?

Statistics
Orginal size - 18x24
Layer Amount - 260

beautiful piece, I love the flow, and the vector shapes/colors are very eye appealing. The under water effect is very well achieved and the light source is nicely done, nice piece bro!
