Strange New Waters by Enaxn Strange New Waters by Enaxn
This is going to look blurry I just know it THERE YES IT IS HAH

SUDDENLY CAVES THOSE AREN'T MOUNTAINS WAT. Mmmmm yes this is an art trade with my lovely =Policide! :heart: It's of her lovely happy-go-lucky water dragon beastie, Ballie. I sort of played it like she was exploring some coastal rocky areas and found some sort of underwater cave mouth and found herself there. Spelunking is probably a lot less terrifying if you respire water and can't drown <___<

I took Photoshop CS6 for a test run for most of this! My brushes behave differently on it, and the brush opacity is kind of annoying because I can't scroll anywhere like I used to. However, it's *delightfully* stable and doesn't scream and shriek and crash when I drag layers around like CS4 does, so that's a HUGE plus.

OOOOH I love days off. Yes yes I do!

I love the blur on this, so shush, it makes it look so soft and gentle, which really contrasts with the boldness of the colours. I also love the way you drew those splashes. ;-;

We need a super gorgeous turquiosey water cave pool like this in SM. it's freaking BEAUTIFUL!
I love all the cool colours in this, and again, your backlighting really is delicious
Also all the effort that must have gone into making that foliage! Aaaaaah, just wonderful!

Omg yes I agree. They go spelunking in a blue pool of joy. I LIKE IT. The foliage is actually a giant trick. Using a textured brush set to scatter makes it look like you spent a lot of time doing something, when in reality you spent 30 seconds going LALALALA and then it's perfect! :dummy:

Eeeee love thank you love! :heart:
