Etching from the imagination by pikajane Etching from the imagination by pikajane
I started etch a sketching a few days ago and this is what happened. I've always been interested in fantasy-oriented environments, and decided to invent a quasi-aquatic prehistoric kind of scenery. I estimate this took about 3 hours.

No references were used, and no sketching or conceptualizing was done beforehand. I started with one thing and kept building upon it until I felt it was complete.

EDIT (7-28-12): I'm so thankful for being awarded a daily deviation for this piece. It was a labor of love, and my favorite thing I've done all summer.

OMGZ NO NEED TO GET SNARKY.
i did click the link before i commented. but the point is that they made the art so any fame they get is of their own accord. you're just part of the audience that shared it.
