Tale of the Hidden Orchid by ErikShoemaker Tale of the Hidden Orchid by ErikShoemaker
SlashTHREE Exhibition 14: Le Cirque Des Couleurs

The theme was about using bright and vivid but also abnormal colors in an unusual and unexpected setting. This is the first of my four submissions for the pack and I'm proud to say that I was chosen to be the featured artist of this release. It's awesome!

This really is stunning in every way. The wonderful pearl-shine effect with the colours is so beautiful and the pattern of the flower/dress/shell is so hypnotising :love:

The daily deviation is well deserved. Congratulations. I can't find anything wrong with this picture. Maybe because there is nothing wrong with it.
