Pisces, mystical and magical, is the sign of rebirth, eternity and reincarnation. Pisceans are ruled by Neptune, the planet of mystery and this sense of the other-worldliness, can dominate their thinking. They are artistic and creative, and love to dream. They are empathic, kind and compassionate, but their need to swim in both directions at once can mean that the sometimes loose their way.

Here, Leo, the Sea Lion, keeps the girls quite safe as they travel on their adventures.

This is the sixth image in my zodiac series, the ot


hers are..


How this image was created….

I first created several layers of different colours of blues and greens, blended these togetherl and applied gradients. I then overlaid these with the underwater rocks.

The mermaids were morphed from the upper part of the girls bodies, with fish tails. Several layers were created for these, and blurred and overlaid to give the effect of movement.

The sea lioness was morphed from a lioness’ head with a sea lion’s body and watery effects subsequently painted.

The fish, the wreck and the mystical sea horses and sea dragon were added.

For the bubbles, I created a bubble brush and applied using different opacities.

The rays of sunlight light were added later and colour merged into the whole. Seaweed and grasses were painted, and finally watery light streams were painted over the whole scene

To create the impression of depth and distance, I applied several layers of textures, and I was particularly pleased with the final feeling of depth that emerged.
