Deeper Down

Title is from a My Dying Bride(surprise, surprise) song from their latest album "A Line of Deathless Kings", although I have had this image in my mind before it was released.
I made an earlier version of this(the link is below), but neither matches exactly the picture I have in my head, but I prefer this version the best ;).

Influence: I am deeply fascinated by the Sublime painters/art movement, so I looked at quite a lot of Sublime genre paintings to get an idea for this picture.

A lot of these are new for me, for example I've never really paint any landscape to this scale, movement or dynamism before. So yeah, I am trying out new things.

The story behind this picture is that the figure in front is a sorceress wreaking havoc and destruction upon a ship. haha, nothing much here..or yes?

Painted in Photoshop 7
