Hello land dog, I am water dog.
Maps goes for a swim, but he's not really fishing anything, so counting as exploration.
Pebble Img

Total = 8
3(fb colored shaded) + 2(complex bg) +1(non-com) +2(explore)
    EDIT: despite very heavy editing, the pebble image is still a main part of the background- Admin confirmed this is a 'simple' background

This is so lovely! I didn't know you could use photos for the backgrounds? :o or photo brushes? That is nifty! :D definitely cuts down on the time!

Thank you so!
So many pebbles in such clear water, something I wasn't confident on hand-drawing! 
I don't know about photoshop brushes (I don't really use PS). But if you're talking about rules concerning tokotas art, yes, it's allowed.
I expected this level of editing to be rated as complex, but an admin corrected me on the hp. Using photos as a large part of the image background makes it simple.

Lol, you reminded me to update the description! Thanks again

I certainly don't blame you! Rocks can be fun... until there are a million of them LOL!
Okay so like photo backgrounds are considered simple? Interesting!!! I will definitely have to give photo manipulation a try some time :D

Heh, ya! If nothing else, I'd say Tokotas encourages artists to learn to forgo details and still create beautiful artworks... ntm save a heap of time.

Apparently! But you would've seen that news update on HP- Purely photo backgrounds do not count anymore, but photo manipulation like this does. It may have changed the value of backgrounds such as this, but you'd have to look to clarify.

holi shet I only just saw your gallery ;;
I adore your backgrounds! I'd love to see what you would do using photo manipulation, but damn, they look lovely already! <3
