First of all...happy holidays Oh my...I didn't post here in a while I'm so busy that I hardly find some free time... but anyway... this is cover which I did for A.E. Marling's newest novel called Dream Storm Sea (you can purchase Kindle edition here and paperback edition here). I'm honoured that I got a chance to illustrate cover for him. And I had total fun to draw it. I really wanted to draw something different and theme of his book was perfect. I never drew kraken, so that was totally interesting. And cuz I had so many layers, my Photoshop got insane...haha. I can't help myself...I need to have so many layers...(and of course red jellyfishes...again ). So when I had to draw smaller details I had to make a new PSD file and I drew over JPG file. Other info...like most of time, I drew it from beginning till the end with colors. I really want to draw more environmental pieces like this in future...but that's gonna wait a little I hope you enjoyed this

I love your art style! Do you paint or do you draw your pics cause they are amazing!!
Thank you very much...and everything is digitally painted
I love your art- It makes me think that the world isnt such a bad place after all! Also, do you use the deviantart muro or another digital paint thingy, and if so may you tell me!
I don't think I can ever be as good as you... I am 13 and I want to see results straight away- a very bad flaw in an artist. I love your pictures- Yhey make me think the world isnt that bad a place to live in after all!!
I just came across your fantastic piece of art! it is really worth the 16,5h you needed for it! It looks vivid and i love the different colours... from red to blue... i also adore the fact that the sky is the sea and at the same time just sky... Really good work!
So beautiful... I don't know what to say sometimes, your guy's artwork is always so awesome.
So gorgeous! Congrats on the daily deviation!
