floating carp by netghost floating carp by netghost
Had a rather hideous day, but before it turned sour I saw an amazing chinese ink drawing of carp. That and i just finished reading a story about a carp pond.

Just take my word that these are either carp, carplike, carp derived, or just crap ;) One way or another I made it so you have to look at it now :)

Enjoy it, ignore it, whatever. I've included the entire image, and a completely unflattened version of the photoshop file so you can steal all my secrets ;)

1oo% Photoshop + Tablet + Carpy (Crappy?) Day

Edit:
(I love it, someone categorized this as traditional art when everything go recategorized on DevArt. My mission is complete, if people beleive my digital are is traditional art ;) )

I saw a wall hanging very similar not a week ago, but I prefer your version to the original. I like the subtle orange flowers in the background.

Pretty cool. If I had a house for it, I'd put a large print of this on my wall. That's some good crap. Errr... carp.

I figure the most useful thing about it is to see how the different layer effects (Multiply, Screen, etc) can be used for paint effects.
