Dream Storm Sea

First of all...happy holidays :santa: :la: Oh my...I didn't post here in a while :omg: I'm so busy that I hardly find some free time... but anyway... this is cover which I did for A.E. Marling's newest novel called Dream Storm Sea (you can purchase Kindle edition here and paperback edition here). I'm honoured that I got a chance to illustrate cover for him. And I had total fun to draw it. I really wanted to draw something different and theme of his book was perfect. I never drew kraken, so that was totally interesting. And cuz I had so many layers, my Photoshop got insane...haha. I can't help myself...I need to have so many layers...(and of course red jellyfishes...again :giggle:). So when I had to draw smaller details I had to make a new PSD file and I drew over JPG file. Other most of time, I drew it from beginning till the end with colors. I really want to draw more environmental pieces like this in future...but that's gonna wait a little ;P I hope you enjoyed this :heart:
