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.

First, I'd like to say that I found your work on cracktwo.com. It's a good thing you put your name on the bottom of your work!
Second, this piece specifically made me so happy. I love the Ecco games so much, I own them all.
You do great work!

This was the first real game I played...
...And to this day it still is. So naturally I would have alot of memories with it. :) This picture brings them all to mind. It is simply beautiful. Thank you for creating this. It has brought joy before my eyes, I hope it does the same for many others. :)

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 :)

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.

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 (:

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

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?

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.

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... :)

Is it photoshop or corel painter?

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.
