Desktop Selkie by StressedJenny Desktop Selkie by StressedJenny
I'd been using this wonderful photo of a seal called "A Peaceful Place" by Ralph Pace as my desktop background for a while and every time I turned my computer on I wanted to add Oula in there. ^__^; So now I have a new desktop, I couldn't resist. I was a really rush job expanding the edges so it'd fit my screen nicely, but it does the job.

You can check out the original photo here. It's so lovely. travel.nationalgeographic.com/…

I love the eerie stillness, both in the original and in the Oula'd version.  The whole scene is like something out of a fairy tale -- the young woman going into a mysterious forest (kelp forest, in this case), maybe looking for the witch, or a treasure, or escaping something/someone.  The way she's glancing behind adds to the feeling that she's going somewhere mysterious, possibly dangerous.  She could just be entering the forest and checking that no one has seen her go in.  Or maybe she's just heard a strange sound...

That is amazing. I like how you exchanged your art into it so naturally. It looks so realistic but at the same time it has the fantasy effect that makes you want to go look for it in real life.

This looks amazing! I don't know why but it kinda reminds me of the game "Limbo"
