    Default August/September Entry: The Mermaid's Isles

    Just a rough idea I have and I don't know if it will work the way I imagine, but I'll give my best...

    The top right could be a harlequin shrimp or lobster. Cool imagination.
    If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.

    Ok, I've tried a few things and it seems that I will go in a b/w style. So far I've used Ramah's mountain brushes and hills provided by Vandy.
    Never heard of a harlequin shrimp before, but seeing pictures on the net it looks very beautiful. That will be the fourth shape in the upper right.
    This is what I have so far:
