Whole New World by Skailla Whole New World by Skailla

I spent my whole saturday making this... I started at 3:00 pm and finished at 2:00 am!:la: that makes... 11 HOURS of work non-stop!!!!!!!111!!!1!!

the whole bloody background was 100% MADE BY ME with photoshop brushes, using only these pictures as references:
[link] (as a main reference)
and [link]

it's my first time doing underwater scenes so please, please don't go too hard on me... I'm not feeling very good at the moment, (having problems with self-estime and all) and I'm not in the mood for taking hard critics on my head...-_-
I know it doesn't look that good, but I'm somehow a bit happy about the way this pic turned out... though it looked way cooler in my head...

now to the PIC!!!! :la:
you know... I've had this scene in my head for soooo long... I was only waiting for the Big BOOM to happen. I mean, the great inspiration to come. and it came in the form of a song...
since that, I got unstoppable until I could finish the whole picture, with this strange, but deep feeling that filled my heart in that moment. I can't explain what that song makes me feel, but I tried my best to represent it here.
Foal's songs in general have a very strange feeling. but it feels so, so good to me. I sort of found myself in their melody, and specially in this song, "Blue Blood" by Foals.

Wolpy and Dawnsoul are having a great time under the sea... like a good memory to remember during the rainy days. Isn't it just nice when you have someone to share your best moments?

The characters and background are (c) to *Skailla (if you don't believe me, then download the image and see the horrible brush marks of my work there).

Wow! This is so beautiful, awesome! You did a really good job in this drawing! I like the expressions of the two wolves and also the way you did the background! I wish I could be good in background like you! I'm still learning to draw background since this year and it's kind of difficult some times but I will try everyday!

It's not a fox. It's the character Wolpy from the comic OMFA that *Skailla has made. Just thought I should let you know. (:

I can show you the world
Shining, shimmering, splendid
Tell me, princess, now when did
You last let your heart decide?

I can open your eyes
Take you wonder by wonder
Over, sideways and under
On a magic carpet ride

A whole new world
A new fantastic point of view
No one to tell us no
Or where to go
Or say we're only dreaming

A whole new world
A dazzling place I never knew
But when I'm way up here
It's crystal clear
That now I'm in a whole new world with you
Now I'm in a whole new world with you
[ Lyrics from: [link] ]
Unbelievable sights
Indescribable feeling
Soaring, tumbling, freewheeling
Through an endless diamond sky

A whole new world
Don't you dare close your eyes
A hundred thousand things to see
Hold your breath - it gets better
I'm like a shooting star
I've come so far
I can't go back to where I used to be

A whole new world
Every turn a surprise
With new horizons to pursue
Every moment red-letter
I'll chase them anywhere
There's time to spare
Let me share this whole new world with you

A whole new world
That's where we'll be
A thrilling chase
A wondrous place
For you and me
