Into the Depths by PReilly Into the Depths by PReilly
Again with the steampunk thing. A bit of the old "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea".

Our explorer investigates the depths of the sea in search of a sunken vessel rumored to hold a fortune in treasure.
Legend has it that the vessel is guarded by an unkown beast.....But who believes in legends anyway, right?


EDIT -

Been getting a lot of feedback in terms of similarities to the video game "Bioshock"

Just to point out that this character is based on the old diving suits worn during the turn of the century.
Thes vintage diving suits were around long before Bioshock.

Take a look -

Obviously Bioshock was inspired by these dive suits.

Awesome, I always loved 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, I so wanted to visit the undersea world in a fantastic Victorian submarine led by a crazy, enigmatic Captain with a mysterious past. :D But I could happily skip the "being dragged off by killer octopi" moment, though, lol!! I love those old diving suits, too. They sure knew how to dive in style in Victorian times.

WOW, I like the old style. I collect BIG JIM action-figures from the seventies and this man looks like a Big Jim Deep Sea Diver.

Awesome and powerful :D

This is fantastic, especially since the elder diving equipment already had a steampunk feel to it. Great job!

if you look at it quickly you say "he that's a big daddy" but with a closer look you see the antenna on the helmed and there is no drill (or any other weaponry they carry) or little sister there.

great drawing

WOW. Pat, that is fantastic. Not only do you have the great visuals of the light pouring out of the helmet but it's also got such a great sense of this guy lumbering along the ocean floor. I love it.

This picture is responsible for the creation of a howl new gnome (D&D) race :D

Hope the artist is pleased with himself...

It's an awesome piece and I never get tired of looking at it.

The colours of the deep see are very well chosen and the effect with the lights of the diver is something else that I really like
