As I enlarged this, my daughter walked behind me to get cat and dog food for the numerous animals that share our space on this planed and said, "ooh, that's very cool." When I had first started thinking
bout this topic, I had wondered how to get the ominous shark figure into an otherwise peaceful scene... and you did it! Beautiful.

Kaya said...

Ellen said...

Hey Miri...

Super pieces you make!!! May I ask what software you're working on? I'm using Alias Sketchbook Pro 2.0, but I can't seem to get great smearing the way you do.

I'm thinking of getting one of the later Painter packages. I've got Painter Classic, a freebie version that came with my Wacom tablet. And it's ALMOST there. But not quite.

Whaddaya recommend?

I like the point of the view of the fish. Also..I like the way you go beyond ...deep into the sea. The colors are so rich...vivid.

love..

stacey m said...

wow, chaotic, but very cool!

RaineWalker said...

This has the look of an oil painting about it. How do you get so much detail so quickly?

I'm impressed.

Katili said...

This is fantastic with all the colours and detail. Love that under water wave movement and curls. The perspective gives a feeling like I really were there waiting the shak to swim away. Great work.

modroom said...

The tunnel effect with the plants I like very much, and the general perspective. Am I also seeing a mouse as well as a homosapien? Really busy and I can feel it bobbing.

murphy girl said...

like the tunnel and all the colors! also, i loooooove the ladies on their picnic with sea breezes!

zordis said...

The terror is passing. Nice and draws the attention to the right place. I like the woman trying not to breath.

Nice work!

Daniel said...

Wow... so many colors and things in the sea. Good job.

carla said...

Wow! There is so much color and action here. I like the tunneled effect that draws the eye to the shark. On the way, there are many surprises...a cat? I also love the eye contact with the woman and the fish on the right. Excellent:>

Lou said...

Great use of the creatures and nice touches with the woman and water rat. You do wonderful work and this piece is no different.
