This is my entry for the first CGTalk Matte Painting Contest.
I won the 1st place.

Wanted to create the underwater city of Atlantis in it's glory, hidden deep in the ocean.

Wow!  It looks both functional and abandoned...so mysterious yet beautiful!  It's hard to tell whether it might still be inhabited, yet it looks like it could be.  A perfect balance of beauty and unsettling anxiety.  :wow:

May I use this in a book for my college project? We are making picture books for kids with disabilities for our local hospital. My story in particular takes place in Atlantis, so I wanted to know if I can use this image, which will be credited under you.

Hello! Can I use this image as a background for an Android game, please? I will give credit in the credits section of the app, and will post a link here to Google Play when the game is published (still under development). The game content is appropriate for all audiences.
Joe (aka mekDroid)
P.S. Very, very nice work, and it looks wild on the game itself (the game action happens underwater)
