I apologize ahead of time for the blurry picture and the glare from the flash.
I've run into a bit of a snag in that composition in my preliminary sketches looked a lot busier than it is looking in the actual painting. I'm still in the blocking out phase of this piece, and I'd like to make any major fixes that need to be done before I start getting more into the details, so any help would be very much appreciated.
I've also attached a hastily Photoshopped pic as well to show what sorts of things I'm thinking about putting in. The original plan was to have the skeletons reaching out of the water towards the angel, but I'm starting to think it won't be enough.
I'm not entirely sure about doing the water, so if anyone has any more interesting ideas please share.
Thanks in advance for any advice.
