Hmmm maybe an ocean scene like the Caribbean with a big ol' boat comin on the right with the beach on the bottom left corner wrapping around...

... or something... lol
(awesome clouds by the way Icats :)
laurael (May 22, 2004)
This is so fantastic! about something in the area of this or
I love native american would do such an awesome job, in any of your cool styles...
strangeoid (edited May 23, 2004)
Or an ancient city... they aren't done much justice these days
(like Rome - link (this one should work- different picture, but still pretty) or Samut Prakan )
laurael (May 22, 2004)
Ooh...that second link is nice, strange, but the first one didn't work for me...did it work for you?
Zack (May 22, 2004)
Roma est semperque erit pulchrissima urbium mihi.
longway (May 22, 2004)

OOOhhh like the clouds and the tree so far... how about Admiral Boxfish's fleet setting sail to raid the evil Pizza Pirate's Island? I think whatever you put in there now will look great framed by that tree and that wonderful sky.

Ooooooh... bellissima... I see water in your future.
staci (May 23, 2004)
oh cool marcello, thank you for fixing the links...
Fin_beast (May 23, 2004)
This is going to be one cool drawing if you keep the quality up Icats.
I really can't wait for this to be finished! ^_^
strangeoid (edited May 23, 2004)
Muchas gracias, Marcello. I need to learn how to use the text boxes properly... ^^;;
From now on, I must refer to this

This coming along wonderfully! It's just gorgeous so far.
staci (edited May 23, 2004)
danke...i liked the second link but it intimidated the hell out of me!
the reference im using now is similarly themed : ) thanks for the ideas
laurael (edited May 23, 2004)
Geezus Icats...That's gorgeous so far!
Shit...I have absolutely no art background...and it's taking me forever to learn all what you can do in the applets...I NEED HELP...get those frikken tutorials up...I need them.
davincipoppalag (May 23, 2004)
Crikey ,not even done and its already a Showcaser! Love what you did on the left..its all great..

That roof must be giving you fits! Still looking great..better every time!
Zack (edited May 24, 2004)
aw! covering up that cool sky! oh well. that was a finished work in its own right.
edit: oh, and the roof looks cool so far. keep at it. :)
emmamommalag (May 24, 2004)
Wow.. this is a lot of work.. looking wonderful so far.
staci (edited May 24, 2004)
thank you thank you and thank you...i know my precious sky is kaput, but i kinda like the fact that i spent a little time on it, not knowing i was going to cover it so's a kickass background now, instead of just an after-thought (which is normally how ze backgrounds go) and blah blah blah here i am rambling again *goes to torture myself with the roof*
marcello (May 24, 2004)
It's ok, at least its memory will never be forgotten!
Aubrey (May 24, 2004)
The sky is still beautiful Icats :) No harm done. Now it compliments the absolutely gorgeous plants you put in and the fantastic grass roof you're installing. I'd say the sky's even more beautiful right now.
bumpinthenight (May 24, 2004)
Very nice greenery... I like the roof of the hut as well.... I dunno.... Japanese or Native American? I say japanese because of the top beams of the roof... I could be quite mistaken, however...

haha the commentary about the roof amuses me (: i just love your crisp work icats and this really really supports that opinion ._>!!
thug (May 25, 2004)
If you can draw flames you could draw it burning. The ghetto grafitti is nice though ;)
davincipoppalag (May 25, 2004)
I knew that roof was a buster! You will get it! the rest is gorgeous...don't give up

It's just're a crazy cat, Icats O.O
Kloxboy (edited Jun 1, 2004)
This is one of the more detailed pieces I've ever seen here. I like it very much. I wish I was in the picture, I would look at the water, finding my center. That would be nice. I'd bring a bottle of whisky to this Zen session too.
gloworm043 (Jun 1, 2004)
WOW!!! What a finish!! I've been watching this picture develope as I'm sure everyone has..and you did an outstanding job on this. It's a wonderful picture Icats. :)
DeadlyBlondeArcher (Jun 1, 2004)
Oh MY! I do believe this will be one of my favorites, also. This was alot of work, I can tell, and you executed it perfectly. I like the title, as well, I know about zen... well, zen and the art of archery, that is. :) This is too pretty just to stay here on this site, don't you wish there were a way to make it big and hang it on a WALL!?!
misterjimsan (Jun 1, 2004)
well that is unbelievably beautiful
laurael (Jun 1, 2004)
Icats...everything about this picture is fabulous. WOW...this tops all the other pictures in the showcase put are the queen of art...*bows to you over and over again*
Minitsaru (Jun 1, 2004)
wow, this looks sooo GOOD! wow, very very nice job! every little detail is.... wow its so good!
mooseflower (Jun 1, 2004)
yay! you finished it! and it looks really cool :)
Axil62 (Jun 1, 2004)
You must be tired. JEEZ!!
emmamommalag (Jun 1, 2004)
Dang! This turned out wonderfully.. it's absolutely gorgeous. So much detail.. wow!
ILoveKenshin (Jun 1, 2004)
That is so great! I really do wish I could draw water... O_O
When I saw this picture a while ago, I thought, "Well, it's a really cool picture, but what's up with the green blob?"
Now I can see it's a lot more than a "green blob..."

staci (edited Jun 1, 2004)
thank you everyone : )
DinoFlorist (Jun 1, 2004)
I also told you it was really great very early on, and you said "nah." Well, listen to me, because I'm always right! And it looks like the general consensus here would be that it is really great. Which it is.
EverDream (Jun 1, 2004)
OMG! That nearly looks like it was drawn with one of those 3d programs! This is crazy...but so GOOD! *gives twenty chocolate chip cookes and ten more just because* :D
davincipoppalag (Jun 2, 2004)
I would say stunning hardly gets it done.. This is a beautiful , intricate , and extremely well done piece! You are amazing Mizz Icats.. truly beautiful!
Anna (Jun 2, 2004)
I love everything about this! The clouds are great, the water is amazing with the reflections, the roof looks so real, and I love the different textures of the trees. Absolutely gorgeous. Well done, Icats!
Supergurl103 (Jun 2, 2004)
finally, finish, icat, very nice ;) i love it so much :)
MaLynne (Jun 2, 2004)
fantazmagorical, beautimus. davincipoppalag is right. stunning doesnt get it done either. its perfect
Pandora (Jun 2, 2004)
Really, what could a person say about this? Even beautifull seems much to simple.
Kasha (Jun 2, 2004)
OoO!!! *is speechless*
fleeting_memory (Jun 3, 2004)
damn Icats! You did it-you have more patience for that roof than I have on any of my pictures (I guess that explains a lot of my picture
Aubrey (Jun 5, 2004)
Wow it's been a few days since I was on here and soooooooo many things have been finished and started.. *sigh*.. This is BEAUTIFUL Icats!!! sooooo real. I could just walk right in there!
HJ (Jun 6, 2004)
This would make a lovely desktop background. Even a photograph.
lxveisblind (Jun 17, 2004)
Yet another amazing peice of artwork. I was just wondering if any of you artist people do this for a living. If not then TRY IT! Go to classes or something! You could make mad amounts of money on these pictures.
animalluver13 (edited Jul 11, 2004)
i love everything about your picture! the clouds, the water's reflection, the shrubery , its all amazing. no, PERFECT!!!!!!! OoO!!!!! ;)

Axil62 (Dec 26, 2005)
