"To the MAX!" 

Here we see that Mitchel opted to use a primary palette to compliment and also highlight these figures in action. Pulling in some creative inspiration from artist Steve Purcell and Boss Fight Studios in this final capture of the Sam & Max comics action figures, he added various splash effect techniques and we really feel like we're there watching this fight in real time! The movement of the water gives the effect of a turbulent sea and low angle perspective Mitchel was able to achieve (with the help from his Platypod Max) is refreshing and really helps amp up the "Realness" factor of this shot.
