I got to break out the watercolors for this one. I hand painted the background old school style. Hope you enjoy it.

Love love love on white. The clouds are so awesome, haha.

Also, I wonder where the person/people occupying the balloon went? Hmm...those murderous clouds..

Indeed. I LOVE the clouds and the colors. You pulled off a complicated scene without looking busy or muddy

I like that some of the better artists on here (Edgar, Loopy, etc.) are experimenting with this water color style.

Very nice, your work is always wonderful to view. Props for using real media too. It is easy to forget how a real brush feels. Beautiful watercolor effect, and nice halftones.

I still don't know what the hell this has to do with the theme. Higher? I guess. Seems like a stretch.

Just read the name of the design and you will see the connection.
Your multi level clouds are really nice.

Re: Extreme Water Balloon


Since submissions are over, it´s time for me to take some time to cast some votes amd make some comments on my favourite entries, and decided to start with this one. Quite a clever and fun concept, and the execution on this design it´s great. It was also quite enjoyable to read about the process behind this on your blog. Shame this isn´t doing better...
