---------FULL VIEW OR ELSE!!!!!!!!!!----------

ITS DONE!!! and due to my clever alteration to the close-up i submitted a while ago this is probably a bit different from what you were expecting:P

ive had this idea in my head for months but finally decided to get it out onto the digital canvas, feels nice to finally see it all finished.
I love painting water due to the fact that i can just make it all up without having to think too much about it, theres no awkard angles and lighting is pretty straight forward once you get the hang of it all:)
Apart from the 2 hands (which were referenced from my own) the rest of the image is all painted from scratch with no refs.

on a side note i was also interviewed by spinegrinder about my work and other such things so check that out here [link] :)

Done using both Painter 9 and Photoshop 7, roughly 60+ hours

feel free to use as a desktop

hope you like it:)

I was at the Corel Support & Learning Page on FB and saw part of your artwork, I recognised it immediately. Here is a link to the page.. www.facebook.com/corelsupportl…

This is a beautiful master piece. My mom came in the room and had to stop and comment at how cool this is. You can tell the dedication and expertise just by looking at it. Really awesome!
