Artist Comments:

This project took me over a week. I easily put 10+ hours into this and I am thrilled with the result. Getting the color reflection on the bubble was a real challenge for me. But I think it made the bubble more realistic. I hope you guys enjoy this as much as I do.

The full view isn't bad, but the composition seems different to me. There is so much open space that isn't engaged. I think it either needs to be cropped somehow or you need to engage the space around the figure.

it looks a lot better. My eyes aren't racing around that open space anymore. I'm more focused on the central image.

What do you think?

THis is so great, awesome concept and execution. The colors are great, the background is great, the whole damn thing is just GREAT!! But since I'm supposed to offer some constructive criticism, here goes: I think maybe carrying some of the brown and green of the tree-girl-thing (thats a technical term ^_^) as tints and lighter shades into the reflection off the bubble and the shading in the cloud (I can't fullview this on my compy though, so I could be missing quite a lot) This is just so cool, I wish I had ideas like this T_T Keep up the good work!!

I like how all these various pieces seem to integrate so seamless, well done :)

Really like the human seemingly reaching for the sky and the arrow at the bottom of the tree, as if it is directing you on a journey :clap:

This is great! I like the use of a large field. It lends the details in the center a certain delicacy.

the bubble looks great:) I like the sparklies and the glow around it. The rainbow patterns are a nifty effect. You did a nice job maintaining the light source.

I think the edges of the tree are a bit too harsh, however, compared to the soft edges of the cloud. I keep wanting to see the tree as separate from the cloud because of this. Blurring the edges of the tree would help. That's really all I can come up with for suggestions; you did a great job on this.

I really like all of the color and detail in this. It is a very nice and different concept.

The one thing that bothers me it the flow of the rainbow spirals to the womans body. That is minor though, and it comes together nicely!
Great work!

AARRRHHH!! I can't do anything about it :( but this is really what I love about the digitalizing of art :( This is what I love about photomanipulation :( i mean it :P really, really love it xD

I love how you used those lovely shapes around the woman (maybe what i love most actually :O because i can't understand how to do it myself :P)

I love how you melted together the pictures and made one really cool new one :S

And the colors :( The contrasts :( :love: adorable :)

Truly a +fav: :D Good luck on further works :)
