Underwater :retouched: by juliedillon Underwater :retouched: by juliedillon
This was originally a painting I did back in 2001, but I retouched it and cleaned it up for use in an album by *Kenyoungmusic

I wasn't sure whether or not to post it, because I made a print for a friend from school of the old version, and now that I've touched it up I feel like I ripped her off. ;) (note me and I'll make you a new one if you want it! I'm really sorry! ;_; )

I like the retouched version, and I thought some of you might like to see it, since even the old version seemed to be kind of popular. It still has some of it's old clunkiness, but I at least managed to clean up the worst of the anatomical problems from before.

I've seen this painting AGES AGO when I was a kid!!!!!!!! And I remember I couldnt find it anywhere to show to my friends, and I was explaining how awesome and creepy the tail looks, and tried to sketch it from memory! WOW! =)

I remember the old version (I made a WinAmp skin out of it) but I really love this version as much as the other. Nice work here.

Agreed! I remember this one from her jdillon.net gallery, "DayDreamer".

Back in the days when things like "AngelFire" and "Webrings" existed.

...Did I just date myself? :XD:
