Dusk is on them... but all the kids want to do is play.

Hahaha this was fun. Although it had a last minute background change. It originally had a nice bright sunny sea background... but ugh how often have I done that now? BORING! So I started blobing down random colors and got this sort of effect that looked less boring!


So we have Okura and co.. and... what looks to be a 'tag along' mwahaha. Looks like Tiare found herself a playmate in the form of a little calf!

Probably one of my favorite Okura-related pieces ever. I just love the range of muted colors. :heart:

Absolutely lovely and stunning. I love the effort you put into the picture and the colour scheme that you used as well works so well.
And the design of the calf is adorable!

Thank you again for the commission.

(Apologises for the belated comment. Finally catching up with myself on dA)

awww :aww: this is so adorable and so so cute. I LOVE how you did the water,the surface,the lighting of the surface on the orca's and the sea floor. They are one of the most hardest things to draw (so i find anyway) you got the rays perfect. This is so beautiful i really love this piece.

The surface water is stupidly easy. Just make a new layer and add black and white clouds filter to it, then add the plastic wrap filter to that with maxed settings. Then drag the bottom up and use the perspective tool to stretch the top. Then just change layer settings and blend it in with the background layer. :3 I duplacated that layer and changed it to hard light, then eraced bits with a soft brush to give the sharper contrast bits you see.
You can do the same for the sea floor, just change the color and add a light noise to make the 'sandy' look. Although thats not what I did here, and instead just lightly painted it it. ^^;

Ehh... not to good.. job hunting sucks, no one is hiring, and step dad's acting like it's may fault I have no job as there's 'no excuse' for me not having one.

Hrrm...sorry to hear that. ): I don't think job availability is improving much anywhere. Not that it's the most ideal place, but have you tried grocery stores yet?
Also your step-dad sounds like Herman Cain. -.-

He is a bastered. Just yesterday as I was gathering my laundry he asked if I cleaned out the flint trap... I said yes.. then he asked if I tossed it out or just 'left it there' uh.. you say me walk past with a large ball of link in my hand and toss it out.. so yes... I tossed it out. He then blows up at me and accusing me of arguing with him and if I didn't like it I could get my things and get out.

His main hobbles are arguing, assuming crap, and getting mad over the tinnyist of things.

Two words: Anger management. He needs it. -.-
Threatening to throw you out over whether or not lint was tossed out, that's pretty ridiculous.
