I really can't think of what I can say that hasn't been already said in the several hundred comments, but I strongly believe in leaving a comment instead of just faving and running :giggle:

I think what really caught my eye on this piece was its stylized nature - the solidity of the water and the light patterns on the mermaid creature. The sharp details of the glass, skin and fish are a great contrast to the softness of the water and hair. The starfish on the shoulder made me smile and the small details of the goldfish in the bottle made looking at it a pleasure.

Finally, the concept; It's raining gold-fish. I absolutely loved that. I wish I could give some critique on this piece as requested, but the only thing that comes close to snagging me is the blurred waterline at the top. It looks to thick and misty for me to be real. The border between air and water tends to be sharp, I recall from snorkeling.

Nonetheless, I enjoyed looking at this picture. Lots. :)

Does the Intous3 let you draw with a pen on the surface, or is that only on a Cintiq?
