life can be the sunshine by alimarije life can be the sunshine by alimarije

Life can be the sunshine, on peaceful days with bright blue skies
Or life can be the raindrops that fall like tears squeezed from your eyes
Life can be the heaven that you'll only reach through hell,
since you won't know that you're happy if you've not been sad as well



Finally finished my summer manip, just in time for autumn haha! Enjoy a playful (mermaid) Booth in tropical paradise.
Booth definitely doesn't have that long hair but I had too much fun drawing it and got distracted

thank you so much! it's my favourite piece from my gallery I think, I've definitely put a lot of heart into it haha.
I've been laying low for a while, some of the community drama got to me and DeviantArt hasn't been my favourite place to hang out lately.
I'm also busy with work which doesn't leave much room for art sadly enough, also my lack of inspiration isn't helping, almost all my ships and plots fell through so now I'm just overall pretty "ugh" every time I log on. I just need to get over myself and dive back into it I think haha.
Thanks for checking up on me, it's appreciated, I've missed you too! :heart:

I'll nudge you on discord one of these days, I could use a good plot or maybe get a different character into SA or something, idk. *shrugs*
Hopefully, your work slows down a little bit too, it sucks when you don't get to relax and have fun for yourself. Also, I am super excited about sibling shenanigans, because Booth can use some love. I've been playing with an alternative timeline for him at the moment because Lauren left and retired Odile and I'm not really ready to retire him.

I will hit you up tomorrow, work today and then a meeting for something else at night, so I'm swamped today.
(Unless you still have skype active, I always have that open at work) I would love to think of something, I still want a ship or something with you! And anything with E'vesdar or Booth makes me happy haha :heart:

This is so incredibly well blended, it's seamless. I adore how you've adjusted the hair movement under water, such thought and detail. You always do booth best I think! :love:

I approve the 'mermaid' look on him! 
He's so handsome and I love how well he fits in this scene.

haha, just imagine brushing all that hair at the end of the day and the look of sadness when he finds all the animals that he tangled up there lmao
Thank you so much! I really love his colour scheme with the tropical mood, especially since it's such a stark contrast against E'vesdar haha.

REPOSTING IN THE RIGHT PLACE OOPS. xD

Omg you finally finished it! This has been gorgeous from the moment you first showed me the stock blending and now that everything is done it's just...wow. Super imaginative, very Booth, very you, and Odile is secretly staring at mermaid Booth rn wondering if she should grow her hair out. XD

Thank you so much!! This was a really great piece to fall back in love with photomanipulations, I've been out of it for so long now. I hope to add Odile at some point (that's why there's so much open space) but I really just wanted to finish it for now. So who knows! Also yes I think long hair would look great on her, but I love her current style as well, a bit more badass. Maybe when they settle down somewhere they can become mermaids together hehe. :heart:

pssh, Odile is in enough of Booth's pics, it's good for him to get to be the solo star every now and then. <3<3
but I do like the idea of Odile growing her hair out in retirement haha.
