Sorry, guys, I'm not trying to spam the art forum!  It's just that I'm finally on winter vacation, my prime productive time...AND I got a new Wacom Intuos tablet for Christmas...

This was an experiment in perspective and a chance to once again use the new tropical plant brush which I created for the Bridge picture.

Spam away, Bard. :)

Love this pic.  Wish I hadn't of languished my moving tropical Lost island all last year, or I'd snatch this up for that.  Would be perfect.

Ah, regrets. cry

Fascinating... Could be our version of Easter Island, though the details are not yet clear. There is a tribe of giants mentioned in the Strata entry, which seems to have disappeared, so there are traces of a lost culture down there in tropical territory. Could be something entirely different though as well... Could even be an existing culture working on such statues... Questions, questions...

At any rate: Great inspirational pic, Judy, and your experiments with perspective and brushes clearly paid off!  thumbup (Aura will follow when I can add another one!)

Very impressive. Like Arti, I'm out of aura, and if you keep spamming us with pictures such as this, I shall remain so for some time to come.

Yeah, I would have thought that the Scattersand Shoals might be a promising location? But so would, maybe, Altario's swimming island. Are you planning further work on it, Alt?

Maybe 2012 is the year I can get stuff done.  I'll take lessons from Rayne on how to get a Team Project running smoothly. :)

I'm going to read it all today and see if that old excitement comes back and if I remember all my ideas.

I do have an Antislar Magic entry I'd like to get approved.  I need to finish entries as opposed to only starting them.



But, I really, really, want this pic..... :D

I should be delighted to have you use it - and to inspire a creative involvement of any sort!   I can promise you a matching pic of the island itself should that help.....

Hello all! It's been a minute since I poked my nose in here. Can't remember if I ever did anything useful.

Ah, too bad that internet is so restricted in China, Ferra. Can't be much fun surfing the web that way if Big Brother's watching you... Hope you enjoy your stay nevertheless!

Hi, dear Arti and other developers!

This year I am in China and cannot use any Google services including YouTube. For this reason I stopped uploading new Nepris videos. I can also not read any comments there.

It just crossed my mind that this information might be useful to you.

Cheers

Short note: We had a bit of downtime Friday/Saturday night due to a server change. Site went online first, message boards took a while longer - now everything should be back to normal.
