Auto-distortion - all at sea by 

The spiney, bearded moon fish dolefully frolics in the waters as the octopus looks on disdainfully and the humans sail to war.
Created in Photoshop a mixture of Photoshop-generated shapes, and textures with added photographic elements.
Moon created in Bryce 6 and the seascape and buildings created in Artmatic Voyager.

Not an artist just an outsider trying to get somewhere in the artworld. Got a long way to go yet. Appreciate all the help I can get so criticism is most welcome.

    I like your moonfish – rather scary! I’m not sure if the octopus is looking on disdainfully – I think he may just be curious, as you would be.

  • Thank you very much Gen1977. Very much appreciated. Yes the octopus was curious wondering why the moon fish was getting all the attention. lol
