A day at the seaside

Uploaded: April 06, 2014


I found this little ant family having a wonderful time at the beach.
Several separate components were used to make this image, the steps were added to the seaside scape, along with textures, filters and ants.

Colors and textures are very every-catching.
The anthropomorphism is quite delightful.
We may never look at ants in the same way.

This kind of work is way out of my league. You can explain it a hundred times and I will not understand it. But that is ok because I still can sit back and enjoy the work you put into it, the humor of the story, and the beauty of your talent. What an work of art Debbie. #11018648
