Manatee by Wildweasel339 Manatee by Wildweasel339
*Update* : Thanks everyone for your thoughtful input.  I decided to revert back to the non-blurred foreground.  Whether fully successful or not, I think it does have a more cohesive appearance.

Inspirational! I could write a whole story based on this picture alone. It evokes much in me.

A most amazing concept! Have never seen anything quite like it before - which is a good thing. And, although your work seems to be all digital, I would have to place you in the same class with our American Brandywine school of illustrators, brought up-to-date-, of course. Will have to "watch" you!

I don't exactly know why, but this piece had something different from the rest of your gallery. Probably the point of view and even the subject. As a person who like a lot ocean and its creatures, I've got to tell you that I love this ! :D

I just have to put this into my favorites just because it's a manatee *_*
No, great painting, too :) I love the colors.

I seriously can't get over how good every one of your pieces is. I'm waiting for you to release some kind of story book that I can read to my non-existent kids. And given the quality and originality of your work, it could be a book without words, just page after page of your amazing works; each being a story itself.
