Illustration Friday: SEA

My Illustration Friday project for 1/6/06. The fish are a sculpture that has graced our bookshelf for several years and the shells are from various trips to the Gulf Of Mexico, the Atlantic coast of Florida, and the Pacific Ocean near Monterrey, California. The finished project is a combination of several layers, all edited with PhotoShop. I've just started to learn a little about it and I found the greatest site if you want to learn more about PhotoShop than the books tell you. It's called Planetphotoshop.com and the site is great. They have tons of tutorials and shortcuts as well as video demonstrations. I highly recommend this site to anyone who wants to get more from PhotoShop. I've included a few hidden images in this picture for anyone interested in looking for them.

Nice photo collage! I do see a tiny reflection of you (?) in a bubble on a shell and some reeflections of the hands and camera. Cool!

Very nice illustration. I found a reflection in the bubbles and a baby in the pearl.
Thank you for the kind comment on my 'Picasso'.
