Sea Monster

Ye be off the map, matey. Here there be monsters

After the EVA-03 shoot, I had an itch to shoot some more water scenes and McFarlane's Water Dragon was just the figure I needed. I tried to create a more dream-like image, sort of how I imagine seeing the Loch Ness Monster must be like. Strangely blurred (Bigfoot is blurry!), but with surprising sharpness that burns into your memory and leaves you with a lifetime of questions. Or maybe I'm talking out my behind.

Setup for the shot is the same as the EVA-03, but with the fog machine going and the lip of the bowl standing in for a water ripple.

Thar EXIF blows!
