Daily Deviation

Given 2009-10-08
Taishu by ~JoeSlucher - This painting is incredibly inventive and quirky. It carries an air of mystery and antiquity. The main figure, which can be interpreted as a submarine or a giant sea monster ready to wake up, shows the artist's ability to combine different organic and mechanic elements to achieve such this delightful, creepy effect.

The city and creature are both so unusual! My mind simply can't comprehend how big that animal must be!

So, what happens if the fish decides to dive town into the ocean for a bit? What happens to everyone in the city on top of the fish?

The race on its back are amphibious and they also have drivers that are telepathically linked.

Oh good, lol. I guess that prevents a whole lot of deaths when the fish dives underwater.

I've seen this picture before, but I can't think where. Like actually this picture, on a poster? Front of a magazine? Anyway, great, love the idea, and very well painted. And as everyone is saying what it reminds them of, it kinda reminds me of a book called Mortal Engines, only like gone completely the other way (anyone who's read it will understand).

It was created for Baeg Tobar but they don't have any printed material yet. It was in an online magazine called 2D Artists and it was featured once in Advanced Photoshop magazine. If you realize you have seen it on a poster or cover of a mag let me know because it was done without permission then.
