Specially created for the "Sunken Mysteries" Contest.
Hosted by :iconmalleni-stock:
Sunken mysteries - new contest ! great prizes ! Hey guys!
Occie Dance I think it's time for a new contest ! Occie Dance
The theme is:
 Gem Sapphire SUNKEN MYSTERIES Gem Sapphire 
To date, we have explored less than five percent of the ocean.
95% have never been seen by a human being.
So, what is down there, in the deep ocean? What mysteries could we find?
Mermaid cities, shipwrecks full of treasures, ruins of ancient kingdoms, unknown creatures ?
Dark secrets that may never be revealed ?
Let your imagination run wild !


The rules
Blue Square Bullet your entry must be a photomanipulation
Blue Square Bullet your entry must be created exclusively for this contest
Blue Square Bullet all used stocks must be from legitimate resources

Artists Note:
This is the longest time to date,  I have ever spent on any artwork, plus lots of sleepless nights doing this! :faint: If you never entered a contest, you should definitely give it a go. It really does not matter if you win or not because having a theme picked for you and a deadline really pushes you to the limits. It inspires you to use your imagination and work harder than you would normally do. Entering an art contest is great practice for future commissions,  it will help you be more disciplined, keep you motivated & encourage you to get your work finished on time. So give it a go! :happybounce:
