They remind me of the Barrow Wights from Lord of the Rings. And putting them underwater is a very interesting choice.

Ooooh, very cool, at first glance I thought these were the Dementors from Harry Potter, or the ghost king from Lord of the Rings. I love the creepiness element, and the greeny effect which gives you the impression that they are underwater. And they are. It is very effective, well done :D I love it.

You have really great use of gesture and light in your work, and they are all so full of movement! Love the limited color palette. The use of grays, greens and soft warms are quite unique. You also have a way of using computer programs look like traditional painting tools. Way dig, keep up the good work!

If professional in the sense of making my living with my illustrations then yes. Whereas I work as a freelancing graphic designer and programmer as well:)

The atmospheric effects really add some depth to your piece.
The loose brush strokes, the heavy contrast and the angled horizon help sell
the soul and the dynamism in your piece. Nice job! :highfive:

Oh... what a lovely image. I could just imagine these spirits wandering in the muck of the ocean bed or a lake bottom, looking up and wondering who they can drag down with them. Wonderfully done.

A little too much symmetry but it's great 9/10
It gives the feeling that they are sand ghosts not sea ones.

At first I thought they were on an icy mountaintop. Then I noticed the fish. I now love the piece that much more.
