Sea

sea
The sea: water. It's the nectar of all life. There will never be any more nor any less than there is at this moment. The water that we are drinking today was in the sea just a short time ago, and it will be again. Let's take care of it, and everything that lives in it. It's a matter of life and death.

Done from scratch in Photoshop for Illustration Friday.

That's a mighty big glass of water! But you are right its all too easy to take it forgranted...

I love the splashing especially.

carla said...

What can I say...once again you've created an outstanding illo that has so much to admire! Let's see...I think I'm mostly blown away by the splash of water in the glass. Really wonderful work, Rick!

Thanks, y'all. It was alot of fun to do. I have to give a tip 'o the hat to Tim O'Brien who did a remarkable painting a few years ago of dolphins leaping from a puddle of spilled water; while my piece isn't a rip-off, it was most certainly inspired by his piece.

I really enjoy watching how you are going to turn each project into a conceptual piece of art. Gives everyone more to chew on than just a pretty picture. This is nice Mr. Lovell!

Alina Chau said...

Jayme Jacobson said...

Hmmm. I think that you have captured what we all want--to leap outside of the glass! (But then what?) Very nice illustration.

Karen said...

Very striking image. I love the splash.

Did you notice that you are featured on Drawn! as a random blogspot for Wednesday, January 11? How cool is that?

Beautifully done, your Illus Friday submissions are always a treat. Thanks!

Jaimie said...

beautiful and delicious!
this makes me want to learn how to use my photoshop (besides the basics) and the new wacom tablet I got for christmas!

Don said...

LOL! Great job making the images work together! Is it true that Sea World has been making whale sized budget cuts? ;-)

Julie Oakley said...

I agree with j. e morris - I always look forward to your illustrations
