The beams of sun shooting through the water are so pretty
Nice! I like the reflections on top of the water.
That was the trickiest part of all.
I bet! That's one of the reasons I don't draw pics that take place underwater. I have no idea how to do that.
It's best when done on a separate layer, so you can do what you need to do without it affecting the rest of the picture. I drew some basic lines in a bright blue color, then I used the Gaussian blur and the "liquify" effect. Easier said than done.
Thanks! The top of the water was a little tricky but I think I pulled it off nicely.
This turned out really good! I love the light filtering down through the water. Right now I'm waiting for either Nemo or Ariel to start swimming up from the bottom of the page! Lol!
