Beneath the Waves

My entry for the "Beneath the Waves" artstation contest - I entered the keyframe concept art category.

This is the story of a young guy living in Neo-Venice; the city, once on the surface of the planet, is now on the bottom of the Adriatico sea and, even if the centuries passed, it remains with its original aspect. But the tourists who visits the city live now in a complete different world, projected in the future and interconnected with alien life forms; the main character of the story wants to leave his underneath world and discover how it is the life in a place full of air, sun, colours and charming new technologies. So he joined the Guild of Explorer to be trained and receive a pass to go on the surface.

The keyframe starts when he look one last time at his marvelous birth place talking with his closest friend then he starts his journey to the surface.
