this is a lovely picture, one critic, the pectoral fins of the two adult dolphins and the dorsal fin of the dolphin in the background are to large compared to their body size. however the movement, energy and color of the image is stunning. i also love the bodies of the dolphins, usually people make them too thick and bulky, but yours are perfect!

I played Ecco a little when I was a kid. Fun game, though when I first saw this I immediately thought of Lisa Frank, lol

When I saw this on the DD I just had to fave it because it really captures the game perfectly and it is so amazingly done, it just looks like a master piece and something that belongs on the front cover of the game also, wonderful work here.

This was one of my favourite games growing up, when I was a little girl and had a megadrive. This is an amazing fan art and does the game justice! If they did a separate re-release this would make a great cover art :aww:

Knew the second I saw this it was to be ecco themed. Coming to look at your gallery it really takes a hammer to my heart.
Ow. Nostalgia.
Same goes for all the people down there, most likely! Or not? The attention and DD is well deserved no doubt, at least!
That aside this work is flawless! Stunning! There is a very familiar nature, the way you have put ecco to this medium, here. He couldn't look more accurate. I've seen a lot of cartoon-y ecco the dolphins and I feel like you've portrayed him with such dignity here. The surroundings and colors are sublime. The creamy twilit sky for example, and blue-green waves. You must have a good and well experience with the coast land because it's spot-on!

Congrats once again. Goodness, that whimsical EtD feel.
