Okay, so I made a cloud brush....
...and went overboard :D

I also made a complementary hue brush and ended up with the monster...

This could be from some fantasy tale...

anyone want to write one?

:D

:D Thanks SCP, Coops, Evart..
The story's not been written yet but I think he's bargaining with the monster for a sword with that gold chain he has..

Wow. Could really inspire tales. No kidding.

Feels like a Jumanji, Chris Van Allsberg, spawned by the modern psyche kind of tale. Feels culturally right in there with people who have been long exposed to fantasy and action adventure movies and books etc.

Keep going! You're on to something.

Dude!!! This is way to cool! The monster is fantastic as well as the man on the flying raft (awesome concept)!!! What really blows me away is the perspective you have on it. Not an easy thing to paint from a view looking down and have everything look as right as you have done. Totally awesome!!!:eek::D:D:D

Awesome, love the design of the 'sky raft' with the hobbled together logs. The cloud brush has wonderful depth and creates great texture and the leviathan looks rather intimidating. :):)

@Byron, thanks :) I guess I'll have to figure out the story first :D (**goes to consult his kids :D)
@Juz, Thanks so much, I am going to try and improve the 'cloud' brush' so it come out even more 'authentic', I'm still struggling with understanding some behavior settings in the matrix.
@Sketchism,

ANd once I saw a flying raft in my head there was no going back was there.. ? :D also, the perspective was intended for that, if you imagine water below the raft, it would appear to be quite normal, but since I ended up dropping away the floor, suddenly the perception changed quite a bit. I guess this became a realization for me about how strongly limited by conditioning my thinking was :o Thanks again for the happy vibes :)
@Alexandra, Thanks so much :)
@Rose, Thanks, glad you enjoyed it:)

Thanks so much Professor, I guess I have to thank my father for that, he was the one who incessantly fed me & my imagination with books full of fantasy :) I hope someday I can make my mark in there somewhere :)

Have you heard of The Edge Chronicles (http://www.randomhouse.com/kids/edgechronicles/)? Fly, this would fit right in to any one of those stories. These little novels are one of my absolute favourite things happening in the world of fantasy/fairytale fiction right now....your image has the same over-the-top, almost decadent sense of adventure found in the series.

...in desperation, Ermir did the only thing he could think of in the moment before the windserpent struck. He pulled the gold medallion that was given to him by the Sky Goddess and held it aloft for the monster to see. The morning sun glinted off the bright gold and sparkled in its cat-like eyes, mesmerizing it as the medallion twisted and turned in his hand. Soon Ermir would be riding the hypnotized creature and be speeding through the clouds towards the mountain of daggers, leaving behind the cloudraften to dance aimlessly on the lofty breeze...

Dear Flyashy, this overgrown eel would be fantastic at next Christmas Eve supper. We may have one hundred guests around the table fed with it!:D

Very imaginative and tasty!
