So I've learned some new photoshop tricks, and I am enjoying them! I've decided to create something that isn't seen too much, and that is an Angel and mermaid encounter. The, "Merman" in this case, wishes he could fly and be more free like the angel. The angel expresses her solicitude for the mermaid, while thinking to herself "I was once there." This is mainly a representation of spiritual evolution, in a sense. One ascending or evolving from the waters to the skies. All criticisms are welcomed, good and bad.

:D (Big Grin) Thank you, I am glad you like it! I absolutely love your jelly fish stock. I thank you for providing them, and I enjoyed making them glow. I think your jelly fish are really, realistic looking. They do not even look 3D rendered. I appreciate you, :iconmysticmorning:Love

Fantastic work! Thank you for using my stock.

No problem at all, SqueeZe.... I have always been fascinated by your stock. However, as I always say to all the great stock providers - before I use a really good piece, I really have to sit back and think on what I am going to do with the piece. I just like to do good stock some justice, and not just put a stock in a scenario that just doesn't fit, you know. Furthermore, you're one of my favorite "stockers" :nod: among a few others. And you'll probably be seeing a lot of me, my friend!:nod:hehe. Again, thank you for your stock, hard work, and dedication.

Thanks, Roy I am pleased that you like it. I spend hours and hours trying to improve my style, just so that I could take good stock and do it justice with the right composition, and right techniques. I have always been a fan of your stock works and art works since day one here on D.A. As I've stated before "it is like being a kid in a candy store!" Thanks for providing such good stock, Roy and I really appreciate it!:nod:

Thank you very much, Amanda. Lately i've been stepping outside of my box of creating scary and action art. I'm aiming to create more awe inspiring and softer art. :nod:
