I don't really understand the message here. what is the point of the ship? of everything being underwater? or the elongated feet?

Sorry, it seem to not be very clear... :rolleyes:

...."The sun began to beat down on the wings of Icarus, and slowly they began to melt. Icarus noticed the wings coming apart, but in his joy kept on beating the wings faster and faster bringing him ever further towards the sun. Soon all the feathers had fallen from the wings of Icarus and the boy plunged down into the Aegean Sea.

Deadalus looked for his son but could see him nowhere. He then looked down at the sea and his heart broke as he saw the feathers of his son's wings floating on the sea. Deadalus dove towards the sea snatching his son's body out of the water but alas it was to late. Deadalus carried the body of his son as both their feet dragged on the sea below, as a result of the great weight now placed on his wings by the two bodies they now supported. Deadalus took the body of his son and buried it on an island called Icaria in his son's memory." ...

That's the legend of Icarus i tryed to illustrate :(

Awesome work, but I agree that the foot does looks a bit awkward.

I really like it, but I wouldn't have kown it was an Icarus reference, unless you told me. I thought you were making the "king of the world" scene from Titanic with a truly artistic slant. I really do like it though, lovely style.
