Big Blue by Orioto Big Blue by Orioto
PRINT : [link]

For the wallpapers, [link] or find it on the internet ;)

This is inspired by Genesis (and dreamcast) game Ecco the Dolphin ! I was looking at screens from the game and i found the idea of a side view of the ocean interesting to do !

And you know what, for once, as people usually want prints from my game series but there are copiright issues, well i submit this as a print. After all, there isn't really copyrighted character, as it's just a dolphin :)

Nicely done! I did like the visuals seen in Ecco 2: The Tides of Time, even if the game was a total nightmare to beat.

This was the first real game I played...

so poetic, it reminds me my childhood, when i played ecco on my sega genesis, (i never done this game)
ViroVeteruscy Featured By Owner May 26, 2009   General Artist
Oh dear god... That game made me hate all water levels for any game since I was like 3 and level 2 for Sonic the Hedgehog 2 for the Genesis didn't help either.

Looks perfect in my book, excellent artwork.

It would be really nice to have a new Ecco game. Awesome graphics for Ps360 or awesome controls for Wii :)

dude don't jump high in the air it's scary
DragonEyedSwan Featured By Owner May 16, 2009
I was so little, and ecco was sooo hard, but I loved it! I actually bought the one they made for the PS2... terrible. Don't buy it. Haha. The controls are too wonky and you can't customize them...

I love it. Very... relaxing.
mapelode Featured By Owner May 16, 2009
Ah, ecco the dolphin was such a hard game :ohnoes: (sega megadrive version). Love the pic :heart:
Kinbarii-chan Featured By Owner May 16, 2009
I love this game! it's so hard; I can never get past that giant shark thing that you have to swim through a long, dark cave to get to, especially since it scares the crap out of me. but i still feel like such a loser playing it haha (:

OMFG I LOVE THAT GAME! I still own it! And a dreamcast! And they work!
chameleonkirsty Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
Lol your gaming images are so nostalgic, you should make a "Tomy Tronic Shark Attack" one if you've ever had one of them years back xD
abnormaltoonage Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2009
So freaking pretty!

I'll just take a nice leap in the air here and AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH WHAT THE HELL.
gmcube Featured By Owner Mar 25, 2009
Aww, I was hoping it was going to be from F-Zero based on the name. Not that this isn't good too.

Ever think about doing something from F-zero?
AoiKita Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2009  Student General Artist

toshema Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2009  Student Digital Artist

Bailando Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2009
OMIGOSH THAT GAME WAS AMAZING!!!!!!!!!! One of my favs as a little lad. Awesome artwork as usual!!
Cerealz Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2009
good work!! =) even if "Mario World" and "Zelda" are my fav ^_^

u should do a poll asking something like "what game art work you want to see next?" ;)
daimwn Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2009
I really liked the original Echo, the sequels were not so good.
On the other hand you did a good job on this one. Tricky though, no way of telling it was inspired by a game considering the content.
Loomedai Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
NIIICE! I totally wanna go to the beach now X3
NovaStarX Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2009
O.M.G.! I used to love-

...O.M.G? Wow.... I never use that...

Anyways, I used to love playing Echo the Dolphin (although it was a hard game for a little seven year old like me...) ...good times....

They certainly don't make them like THAT anymore. :)

Well, I wouldn't say that... There is Braid and Castle Crushers on the XBox. They're pretty fun... :)

Looks absolutely incredibly real!
Is it photoshop or corel painter?
loyalrex Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2009
It's a beautiful picture, but I think it would be more interesting if Ecco were doing something more exciting like a somersault, like I bet many of us kept doing whilst playing the game.

It's still a very tranquil piece and the amount of detail on Ecco, the coral and other fish is incredible.

thx for the criticism !

C4dGuy Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2009
ooowww i tought it was f-zero related, there was this funny circuit, big blue....
