This is AMAZING! I was wondering if you'd be so kind as to let me use this on a piece of art homework (With full credit of course!) as an example of how Hokusai's wave painting has been adapted by different artist over the years. I think this would be a good picture to use as it is profesional looking and is very different from other pieces i've seen. Hoping you are well and can get back to me soon.

They were both very good but I don't think they are what I was looking for, but thanks again for letting me use this one. :)

Too many ideas to cope with sometimes, and they don't always turn out the way I imagined them! But I like taking risks ...

Good reuse, nice overall look. The detail doesn't load for me, sounds like the water turned out really well.

Thank you! I have a ridiculous stockpile of miniature figures and I love finding uses for them (then I don't feel so guilty about frivolous shopping sprees buying them).

Wow, I love it.
If I had this it would be sunken into the wall in my bathroom, just by the bath tub, use it as a soup or spouge holder, then I'd could copy the wave pattern around the room.

very nice, might be stronger without the figurines, as everything else is so stylized.
