Oxygen by mitengu Oxygen by mitengu
Here we have Camus, condemned to drown forever in the frozen waters of Limbo. Everytime he reaches the surface he is forcefully dragged down by the tentacles of the Kraken. Despite the futility of this endless routine, he never loses hope.

Camus is (c) of Toei/Masaami Kurumada, Hope and Struggle are not.

This one is a great illustration. I would just try to add more of a water feel to it, such as bubbles, etc.

Hi!
Long time!
How is everything?
The surface of the water is beautifully done.
I personally capture more "hope" than any negativity from the picture. Maybe the colour, maybe the light.....

Was Camus from "Saint Seiya"? I really liked the manga when I was about 11. Now I do not remember any of the charactors.
"Growing up" is a scary thing.......

Thank you very much! nice to hear from you! I guess there is a sense of hope in this drawing...I am an optimist in the end!

Saint seiya is really old, but anyways, you will find my drawing has nothing to do with the original manga!! I know growing up is scary, I`m not liking it so far. Greetings to Claudio!
