It's never good to have a dead girl floating face-up in your koi pond.

I'm pretty sure the blood is dripping from the sword of whoever killed her, who is standing on a little bridge or something.

Y'know, Corel Photo-Paint has a really neat water drop brush that makes them shiny, gradiated, 3D, and transparent all at once. I planned to use it. Unfortunatly, Corel did not want to maintain the quality I wanted. Blurry=bad. Grrr.

I made the water myself. Water may look easy but it was tricky. Maybe I'm a tard, but it took me a lot of work to make this water look like actual water. I've spent about 7 hours on this wall.

I did have to find a pic of koi online for the project and filter them. I'm not sure I could make koi from scratch.

Whacha think?

    I love the water, looks fantastic!
    I think the blood that's on the water should has more blur on the outline
    Gorgeous wall!

    It is indeed a bad thing to find a dead girl in your pool >_<
    This is very cool. The water looks great and I love the idea. Some of the blood looks a bit too blobby though.
    Other than that, nicely done!

    mmm, i dunno about how the blood splots fade into the water (blurry = bad there too) but other than that, eerie and very cool.

    Nice work, the idea is really good and the scan is very nice, also the bg is cool, you made the water really well and I love the chara, she's so gothic...

    ooh, neat! nice extraction, and good water effects. I like those kois swimming underneath too. I also like how the paid attention to the details like how the blood is dissolving into the water :)

    the time you spent was well worth it! this is gorgeous!

    Very good job on the water. I know it's very tricky, since it's transparent. I tried colouring glass in the window this one time and totally just ended up with some opaque blue stuff in the end XD Ended up looking more like a mirror than anything. I think you have great skill in the background and I really love the floating hair ^^

  17. octovrios Oct 29, 2009

    i think it's very good and i also like the water...
