Thanks very much, kharmazero and dgauz!

I'm very happy about how this one turned out!
I did try adding scales on the leviathan and wood texture on the boat, but the extra details took out a lot of the movement in the design. I'm working on making more fancy, detailed drawings that still have a lot of energy. Anyone have any pointers on how to do that?

Wonderful. I'm glad you decided against scales; focus on the outline makes it look ephemeral and thus like the ghost of a monster. The person standing up to the monster even though he/she is most certainly going to die ties the imagery together and points to the inner battle. Standing toe-to-toe with one's inner monsters usually shows the monster to be but a ghost, as well.

Besides that, it is eepppiiiicc!! Possibly a scene from "The Iliad," in the wine dark sea....

This NEEDS to be a shirt.

Woah! That's exactly what this design is about, you're very perceptive and also awesome. A lot of my personal art is about different kinds of inner battles and other introspective relationships that people can have. Thank you for the kind words!
