There IS a story here. Maybe someday I'll even write it. However, I think it's just as approprete to let YOU see it for yourself. Isn't that what exploration's all about?
--------------------------------------------------------------

I NEVER thought I'd get this one done. Spent four days working on it, on and off. I wanted to get back into practice working with real colors, and I'd say I did. Defenately PROUD of this one.

Done entirly in Photoshop. The moon and planet were done using a few photoshop tricks, the ocean was cut and paste (reshaped, tooled with the smudge tool to look like water, and highlights added) Everything else is either painted in (including the stars) or touched up with a gradient. At a guess, twelve hours to do.

Yeah, that was fun to do. I still don't know why I did it (every painting has some germ of inspiration at the beginning, but for the life of me, I can't remember what inspired this one.) but it was a blast.

Wow, she looks realy good, and the background, too.
I like the contrast between the blue and red parts of her body!

Thank you!

I MAY (emphasis on MAY) wind up doing that story as my NaNo Novel this year. It's a choice between this and another idea. It depends on which one I like more by November.
