Improved the lighting and reflection on the water a bit. I know the lighting on the planet is still off but it just didn't look as good as in the old version that's why I didn't change it.
prints now available

Beautiful. If u don't mind me asking how long have you been doing photomanipulation? ...And how do you make such a good quality on all your pics? :)

good quality is very subjective probably :)
I've been doing manips since about 2006 I think.

Oh man. I start studying Film and Television Production in September and let me tell you: as soon as I make a Sci-Fi film, you're definitely going to hear from me again for some concept art or something :nod: :lol:

oh the loss i feel that my heart is gone
walked away in to the sun
returned as ashes from fighting wars
all that is left, praying to stars
lacking the vision of where to begin
i hear someone calling within
walking on water seems to pale
in the face of this screaming gale
ship leaving shore, where do you sail?
night seems to take away all the pain
only to return with tears cried in vain.


beautiful picture I :iconlove1plz: :iconlove2plz: it!

You can draw in photoshop? I never knew. How long did it take?
Reply
:iconerikshoemaker:
ErikShoemaker Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
yes it's possible to draw in PS, what other program would you use? ;) Actually this one is not a painting, but a photo-manipulation, though, and it took me around 10 hours I think.

Makes me think of the handover of Hong Kong from the UK (British Empire at the time) to the PRC... it was technically the fall of their Empire... the largest in history...
