I was gong through old short cuts and I came across this, takes me back. I remember really enjoying the composition and form of the water with the beautiful green, not to mention that it's one of the rare mer-males and a handsome one at that! I remember finding his peaceful concentration expression striking.
Still holds up to the test of time :)

Sweet! I found the artist of this! I saw this picture on photobucket when I was looking around (so of course I had to copy it to my album because it was so cool) but I had always wondered who drew it. And now I know! Yay!
